In this post, we will see the book Structural Design by Baikov and Strongin.

About the book

The book presents a systematic and step-by-step approach to the physical and mechanical properties of concrete, reinforcing steel, reinforced concrete, masonry, and structural steel.

The theoretical basis and design principles for reinforced concrete, masonry, and steel structures have been brought in line with new standards which were put in force in the Soviet Union since January, 1977. The material is presented with emphasis on Soviet, practice in highly industrialized precast reinforced concrete, type-design structural elements, and high-strength materials.

A good deal of attention is given to special engineering structures for water supply, sewage disposal, and heat supply systems, including tanks, settlers, aeration filters, aeration tanks, water lowers, buried conduits and headers, and heat-pipeline structures.

Carefully worked design examples are shown throughout the book, and an appendix gives a selection of design charts associated with the basic Soviet codes of practice.

Intended as textbook for students of building, civil, and structural engineering, the book will also be of interest to students in other departments and practising engineers.

The book was published by Mir in 1980 and was from the Russian by Alexander Kuznetsov.

Many thanks to *Akbar Azimi* for providing the original scans. We cleaned the 2-in-1 scan and created the pdf. There might be some warping in few of the pages, but overall it is very readable.
