Foreword:   This Glossary / Translation contains over 700 entries from the field of structural engineering in German, French, Italian and English. It was produced to aid to the teaching of this subject by providing a translation of the most important technical terms in each of the abovementioned languages. It should also prove useful to the practicing engineer.

 

The Glossary / Translation makes no claims to completeness. Instead, it has been compiled such that it may be easily extended at any time by inserting new terms into its database.

 

Although much time was given to discussing the translation of individual terms it is certainly not absolutely correct in all cases. We would be grateful therefore to receive notice of any mistakes.

 

Many have contributed to the production of this dictionary. Only the following are mentioned here: Pierre Baeriswyl, Simon F. Bailey, Jean-Marc Ducret, Andreas Keller, Barbara Koch, Edward G. Prater, Heinrich Spetzler.
