PRACTICAL, PORTABLE, AND PACKED WITH UP-TO-DATE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING FORMULAS
Thoroughly revised with more than 300 new formulas,
this compact yet comprehensive compilation puts essential data related to the design and analysis of engineering
structures at your fingertips. Structural
Engineering Formulas, Second Edition covers a wide range of topics, including statics, soils, foundations, retaining structures, pipes, and tunnels, and explains the use and application of each ready-to-use formula. This time-saving reference for civil engineers is also
invaluable to students and those studying for licensing exams.

Ilya Mikhelson had more than 30 years of experience in design, research, and teaching design of bridges, tunnels, subway stations, and buildings. He wrote numerous publications, including Precast Concrete for Underground Construction, Tunnels, and Subways and Building Structures. Tyler G. Hicks, PE, is a consulting engineer and a successful engineering book author. He has worked in plant design and operation in a variety of industries, taught at several engineering schools, and lectured both in the United States and abroad. Mr. Hicks holds a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cooper Union School of Engineering in New York. He is the author of more than 20 books in engineering and related fields, including Civil Engineering Formulas, Handbook of Mechanical Engineering Calculations, and Handbook of Energy Engineering Calculations.
