The book Glasbau 2013 (Glass Building Yearbook) appears for the second time in April. Well-known authors have contributed about thirty articles from their long experience in the fields of planning, design, construction and research, and the book is divided into these four fields.
In April, the new Stahlbau-Kalender (Steelwork Yearbook) appears. The Steelwork Yearbook provides a guideline for correct calculation in the entire field of steel structures, and reliably documents and comments the current state of steelwork standards.
In April, the second updated and extended edition of the book Angewandte Baudynamik (Applied Building Dynamics) from the civil engineering practice series appears. This book provides a basic understanding of the model ideas forming the basis for the theories and the terms of dynamics. The most important properties are described and illustrated with examples.
The new Bauphysik-Kalender (Building Physics Yearbook) appears in April 2013 with the main themes being sustainability and energy efficiency. In addition, the current standard DIN V 18599 is commented at first hand for the practice. This year's yearbook also explains and compares various certification systems and building energy standards.
Selected Chapters from the German Beton-Kalender are now being published in the new English “Beton Kalender Series” for the benefit of an international audience – the first two books will be available in April 2013.
The book describes all aspects of ground properties with the emphasis on site investigation, ground parameters, settlement and load-bearing verifications. Provided with numerous examples, this is an essential clarification aid for daily design practice.
