Peter Marti Baustatik. Grundlagen, Stabtragwerke, Flächentragwerke

Das Werk liefert eine einheitliche Darstellung der Baustatik auf der Grundlage der Technischen Mechanik. Es behandelt Stab- und Flächentragwerke nach der Elastizitäts- und Plastizitätstheorie. Es betont den geschichtlichen Hintergrund und den Bezug zur praktischen Ingenieurtätigkeit und dokumentiert erstmals in umfassender Weise die spezielle Schule, die sich in den letzten 50 Jahren an der ETH in Zürich herausgebildet hat. Als Lehrbuch enthält das Werk viele durchgearbeitete Beispiele und Aufgaben zum vertieften Studium. Die einzelnen Kapitel werden durch Zusammenfassungen abgeschlossen, welche die wichtigsten Lehrinhalte in prägnanter Form hervorheben. Die verwendeten Fachausdrücke sind in einem Anhang definiert. Als Nachschlagewerk enthält das Buch ein umfassendes Stichwortverzeichnis. Die Gliederung des Inhalts und Hervorhebungen im Text erleichtern die Übersicht. Bezeichnungen, Werkstoff- und Querschnittswerte sowie Abrisse der Matrizenalgebra, der Tensorrechnung und der Variationsrechnung sind in Anhängen zusammengefasst. Insgesamt richtet sich das Buch als Grundlagenwerk an Studierende und Lehrende ebenso wie an Bauingenieure in der Praxis. Es bezweckt, seine Leser zu einer sinnvollen Modellierung und Behandlung von Tragwerken zu befähigen und sie bei den unter ihrer Verantwortung vorgenommenen Projektierungs-und Überprüfungsarbeiten von Tragwerken zu unterstützen. Die 1. Auflage war erfreulicherweise nach kurzer Zeit vergriffen, so dass diese 2., korrigierte Auflage vorgelegt werden kann.
