Ten years after the publication of the first English edition of The History of the Theory of Structures, Dr. Kurrer now gives us a much enlarged second edition with a new subtitle: Searching for Equilibrium. The author invites the reader to take part in a journey through time to explore the equilibrium of structures. That journey starts with the emergence of the statics and strength of materials of Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo, and reaches its first climax with Coulomb's structural theories for beams, earth pressure and arches in the late 18th century. Over the next 100 years, Navier,…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Ten years after the publication of the first English edition of The History of the Theory of Structures, Dr. Kurrer now gives us a much enlarged second edition with a new subtitle: Searching for Equilibrium. The author invites the reader to take part in a journey through time to explore the equilibrium of structures. That journey starts with the emergence of the statics and strength of materials of Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo, and reaches its first climax with Coulomb's structural theories for beams, earth pressure and arches in the late 18th century. Over the next 100 years, Navier, Culmann, Maxwell, Rankine, Mohr, Castigliano and M ller-Breslau moulded theory of structures into a fundamental engineering science discipline that - in the form of modern structural mechanics - played a key role in creating the design languages of the steel, reinforced concrete, aircraft, automotive and shipbuilding industries in the 20th century. In his portrayal, the author places the emphasis on the formation and development of modern numerical engineering methods such as FEM and describes their integration into the discipline of computational mechanics. Brief insights into customary methods of calculation backed up by historical facts help the reader to understand the history of structural mechanics and earth pressure theory from the point of view of modern engineering practice. This approach also makes a vital contribution to the teaching of engineers. Dr. Kurrer manages to give us a real feel for the different approaches of the players involved through their engineering science profiles and personalities, thus creating awareness for the social context. The 260 brief biographies convey the subjective aspect of theory of structures and structural mechanics from the early years of the modern era to the present day. Civil and structural engineers and architects are well represented, but there are also biographies of mathematicians, physicists, mechanical engineers and aircraft and ship designers. The main works of these protagonists of theory of structures are reviewed and listed at the end of each biography. Besides the acknowledged figures in theory of structures such as Coulomb, Culmann, Maxwell, Mohr, M ller-Breslau, Navier, Rankine, Saint-Venant, Timoshenko and Westergaard, the reader is also introduced to G. Green, A. N. Krylov, G. Li, A. J. S. Pippard, W. Prager, H. A. Schade, A. W. Skempton, C. A. Truesdell, J. A. L. Waddell and H. Wagner. The pioneers of the modern movement in theory of structures, J. H. Argyris, R. W. Clough, T. v. K rm n, M. J. Turner and O. C. Zienkiewicz, are also given extensive biographical treatment. A huge bibliography of about 4,500 works rounds off the book. New content in the second edition deals with earth pressure theory, ultimate load method, an analysis of historical textbooks, steel bridges, lightweight construction, theory of plates and shells, Green's function, computational statics, FEM, computer-assisted graphical analysis and historical engineering science. The number of pages now exceeds 1,200 - an increase of 50% over the first English edition. This book is the first all-embracing historical account of theory of structures from the 16th century to the present day.

Autorenporträt
Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E.h. Karl-Eugen Kurrer, geboren am 10.8.1952 in Heilbronn. Nach Realschule und Maurerlehre Studium des Allgemeinen Ingenieurbaus an der Staatsbauschule Stuttgart (heute Hochschule für Technik). Anschließend Bauingenieur im Ingenieurholzbau. Studium des Bauingenieurwesens und der Physikalischen Ingenieurwissenschaften an der TU Berlin; 1982 Diplomarbeit über die Entwicklungsgeschichte der Gewölbetheorie. Danach Promotion an der TU Berlin mit der Dissertation "Zur inneren Kinematik und Kinetik von Rohrschwingmühlen" (1986) und daselbst Fortsetzung der Forschungen zur rationellen Energieverwendung in der Industrie. Entwicklungsingenieur für Antennensysteme bei Telefunken Sendertechnik GmbH in Berlin (1989-1995). Ab Mitte der 1980er-Jahre Entwicklung des wissenschaftshistorisch akzentuierten Ansatzes der Bautechnikgeschichte für die Baustatik, der später zum Konzept einer Historischen Technikwissenschaft verallgemeinert wurde. Von 1993 bis 2010 Mitarbeit an dem von Edoardo Benvenuto (Genua) und Patricia Radelet-de Grave (Louvain-la-Neuve) begründeten Netzwerk "Between Mechanics and Architecture". Seit 1996 Leiter des VDI-Arbeitskreises "Technikgeschichte" in Berlin und Begründer einer Vortragsreihe am Deutschen Technikmuseum Berlin. Chefredakteur "Stahlbau" (seit 1996) und "Steel Construction - Design and Research" (seit 2008) bei Ernst & Sohn. Chairperson des International Scientific Committee des IIIrd International Congress on Construction History (2009) an der BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg. Gründungsmitglied der deutschsprachigen Gesellschaft für Bautechnikgeschichte (2013). Für seine hervorragenden wissenschaftlichen Leistungen auf dem Gebiet der Bautechnikgeschichte wurde er am 18. Oktober 2017 von der BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg zum Dr.-Ing. E.h. promoviert. Kurrer veröffentlichte über 180 Zeitschriftenaufsätze und Buchbeiträge sowie hunderte Rezensionen und Zeitungsartikel. Im Jahr 2002 erschien erstmals seine "Geschichte der Baustatik", der 2008 die wesentlich erweiterte "The History of the Theory of Structures" folgte. In der Tradition legendärer Arbeiten zur Geschichte der Mechanik gelten diese "opera magna" heute weltweit als moderne Standardwerke des wissenschaftsgeschichtlichen Zweiges der Bautechnikgeschichte.

Rezensionen
About this Edition "[...] K.-E. Kurrer's book is a compreshensive treatise on the theories that are used for analysis and design of structures from the earliest days (Archimedes' lever principle) to the present (finite element method). Those who have read the first edition of the book will be surprised by the huge amount of history and knowledge which has been added in the second edition. One can still read the individual chapters in isolation without losing the broad view on the total. The book is well illustrated with pictures, graphs, historical drawings and sketches, which makes for entertaining reading. It contains a wealth of information and is therefore a source for historians, especially interested in the history of technology, but also for professional engineers and graduate students of engineering and art history. The book is a necessary element of libraries and engineering departments." em. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h.c. Dr. E.h. Hans-Wolf Reinhardt, University of Stuttgart, Germany (RILEM's website: www.rilem.net, July 2018) "(...) Der Rezensent empfiehlt vorliegendes Buch wärmstens - auch den Lesern in Polen. Bauingenieure, Architekten und Umweltingenieure und Studierende der genannten Disziplinen finden dort zahlreiche Anregungen zum Nachdenken." Prof. dr hab. inz. Zbigniew Cywinski in "Inzynieria Morska i Geotechnika", 4/2018, S. 313: About the First English edition 2008 "[...] Ultimately, this is an extraordinary book that should be in every engineering library and on the bookshelf of every structural engineer who aspires to make a difference in the design, development, and preservation of civil infrastructure." Prof. Sashi K. Kunnath, University of California, Davis, USA (Journal of Structural Engineering, March 2009, pp. 330-331) "[...] Kurrer's achievement in compiling this book is colossal, and I commend it to anyone interested in the subject. It will, for a long time, stand well along side the other classics of the field - Timoshenko's "History of Strength of Materials", and Eduardo Benvenuto's "Introduction to the History of Structural Mechanics". [...]" Dr. Bill Addis, Buro Happold, London, UK (International Journal of Space Structures, Vol. 23, No. 3, July 2008, p. 194) "[...] As you can tell from my enthusiasm, I recommend this highly original study, first as a pleasure to read and a thoughtful examination of new avenues to explain the development of human understanding, and also as an aid and inspiration for further research." Prof. Dr. Tom F. Peters, Lehigh University, USA (Technology and Culture, July 2009, Vol. 50, pp. 669-674) "[...] Kurrer's book is truly a masterpiece. In the 800-plus pages, one finds no end of new and interesting pieces of information that contribute to the history of the theory of structures. [...]" Prof. Dr. Harry H. West, The Pennsylvania State University, USA (Journal of Architectural Engineering, Vol. 14, Issue 4, December 2008, p. 130) "[...] Whenever you want to learn about the subject or just want to browse through history - this is the book! It is certainly a must for every historically interested engineer as well as for historians of science. "The Kurrer" will become the standard reference book and will stay in that position for many years to come." Prof. Dr. Thomas Sonar, Institute of Computational Mathematics, Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany (ZAMP The Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics, Vol. 60 (2009), p. 581) "[...] German publisher Ernst & Sohn has brought to the English-speaking public this substantial monograph by Karl-Eugen Kurrer, which is a revised and considerably extended version of the highly successful 2002 German edition Geschichte der Baustatik. The additional content, especially the inclusion of more international developments, makes this book of truly worldwide significance."
