More About Building Structures by James Ambrose; Patrick Tripeny
 
 
 
Overview
The comprehensive reference on the basics of structural analysisand design, now updated with the latest considerations of buildingtechnology

Structural design is an essential element of the buildingprocess, yet one of the most difficult to learn. While structuralengineers do the detailed consulting work for a building project, architects need to know enough structural theory and analysis todesign a building. Most texts on structures for architects focusnarrowly on the mathematical analysis of isolated structuralcomponents, yet Building Structures looks at the general conceptswith selected computations to understand the role of the structureas a building subsystem--without the complicatedmathematics.

New to this edition is a complete discussion of the LRFD methodof design, supplemented by the ASD method, in addition to:

  • The fundamentals of structural analysis and design forarchitects

  • A glossary, exercise problems, and a companion website andinstructor's manual

  • Material ideally suited for preparing for the ARE exam

Profusely illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs, and including new case studies, Building Structures, Third Editionis perfect for nonengineers to understand and visualize structuraldesign.
