A Practical Guide for Architects
Written for the practicing architect, Structural Design
addresses the process on both a conceptual and a mathematical
level. Most importantly, it helps architects work with structural
consultants and understand all the necessary considerations when
designing structural systems. Using a minimum of simple math, this
book shows you how to make correct design calculations for
structures made from steel, wood, concrete, and masonry. What?s
more, this edition has been completely updated to reflect the
latest design methods and codes, including LRFD for steel design.
The book was also re-designed for easy navigation. Essential
principles, as well as structural solutions, are visually
reinforced with hundreds of drawings, photographs, and other
illustrations--making this book truly architect-friendly.
