Listing of contents is well done! I have a suggestion. One volume of the
handbook should be dedicated to "Industrial Structures". This may
include silo / bunker, pipe rack, equipment foundation, gas ducts,
material handling structures and many more. I find scarcity of good
books in this field of knowledge (especially conforming to Indian
codes), while there are lot intricacies involved in such design.

Yes, agreed!!
We need to first receive all such suggestions, to crystallize the contents,
and incorporate all the possible critical areas of STRUCTURES ENGINEERING.

Dear All,

This kind of 'Concept of Structural Engineering Handbook' can not proceed as
'ONE MAN SHOW'. Efforts / contribution from all the professionals is
required for success.

Regards
Vivek
