New Edition. Comprehensive Practice for the Structural Engineering (SE) and Civil PE Exams


Structural Engineering Solved Problems contains 100 practice problems representing a broad range of topics on the Structural Engineering (SE) and Civil PE exams. Each problem provides an opportunity to apply your knowledge of structural engineering concepts. The breadth of topics covered and the varied complexities of the problems allow you to assess and strengthen your problem-solving skills. Problems in both qualitative and quantitative formats are included, and solutions use the same codes and standards adopted for the exam. Step-by-step solutions are used to solve numerical problems, and detailed explanations are given for qualitative problems.

Structural Engineering Solved Problems will help you to


  • familiarize yourself with the exam topics
  • connect relevant structural engineering theories to challenging problems
  • navigate through exam-adopted codes and standards
  • identify accurate and efficient problem-solving approaches
