Description - Solutions for Soil and Structural Systems Using Excel and VBA Programs by Robert Sogge

A practical guide to analyzing soil and structural systems
using Excel spreadsheets and VBA macro programs (in open-source
code) that are provided on the accompanying CD.
This book gives readers the tools to understand the methods such
as finite element analysis used to analyze common problems in
structural engineering, foundation engineering and soil-structure
interaction. The book has value just based on its
instructions in Excel spreadsheets and the Visual Basic for
Applications (VBA) macro programming language alone. By providing
an expert system and guidance to the reader in its use through
examples, the author shows the methods and simple modelling
techniques that demystify soil-structure applications by presenting
the essentials in a clear and concise way.
The book also addresses some of the disappointments in
geo-engineering by providing tools to calculate deformations,
implement soil-structure interaction procedures, provide
simple computer solutions, while incorporating proper soil and rock
properties in the analyses.

Can be used by students or practicing professional engineers as
a hands-on self-study guide as prewritten complete Excel
spreadsheets and VBA programs are applied to many different Civil
Engineering example problems

VBA code techniques and its use and programming are explained
but a working knowledge is not required to use the spreadsheet and
programs provided

Computations are performed using VBA macro programs getting
input data from worksheet cells (whereby the spreadsheet functions
as a pre-processor) or from input data files

Robert L. Sogge has a background which includes training,
teaching, research and practical consulting in the area of
soil-structure interaction. He achieved his PhD in Civil
Engineering at the University of Arizona, USA, and practices in
that state and California. He has developed many of these
computer programs in the pursuit of his work as a
consultant.
