Book ID: 90542

The comprehensive reference on the basics of structural analysis and design, now updated with the latest considerations of building technology. Structural design is an essential element of the building process, yet one of the most difficult to learn. While structural engineers do the detailed consulting work for a building project, architects need to know enough structural theory and analysis to design a building. Most texts on structures for architects focus narrowly on the mathematical analysis of isolated structural components, yet Building Structures looks at the general concepts with selected computations to understand the role of the structure as a building subsystemÑwithout the complicated mathematics.
