Unique in perspective, approach, and coverage, this book is written specifically to introduce architectural, construction and civil engineering technicians to elementary engineering concepts, design principles, and practices. Using a practical, non-classical, non-calculus approach, it combines -- in one volume -- full coverage of the statics, strengths of materials, and building structure analysis/design concepts that technicians must master for the demands of today's changing workplace. Provides nearly 180 examples and over 200 supporting illustrations and photographs, including photos of buildings under construction and in sequence. Contains a very comprehensive set of tables of structural products and their properties. For anyone studying or interested in architectural technology, architectural engineering technology, structural technology, structural engineering technology, civil engineering technology, construction engineering technology, or construction management.

For courses in Statics, Strength of Materials, and Structural Principles in Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Technology. Statics and Strength of Materials for Architecture and Building Construction, Fourth Edition, offers students an accessible, visually oriented introduction to structural theory that doesn't rely on calculus. Instead, illustrations and examples of building frameworks and components enable students to better visualize the connection between theoretical concepts and the experiential nature of real buildings and materials. This new edition includes fully worked examples in each chapter, a companion website with extra practice problems, and expanded treatment of load tracing.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. ¿This resource provides the necessary background in mechanics that is essential in many fields, such as civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing technologies. The focus is on the fundamentals of material statics and strength and the information is presented using an elementary, analytical, practical approach, without the use of Calculus. To ensure understanding of the concepts, rigorous, comprehensive example problems follow the explanations of theory, and numerous homework problems at the end of each chapter allow for class examples, homework problems, or additional practice for students. Updated and completely reformatted, the Sixth Edition of Applied Statics and Strength of Materials features color in the illustrations, chapter-opening Learning Objectives highlighting major topics, updated terminology changed to be more consistent with design codes, and the addition of units to all calculations.

Here, in one volume, is all the architect needs to know to participate in the entire process of designing structures. Emphasizing bestselling author Edward Allen's graphical approach, the book enables you to quickly determine the desired form of a building or other structure and easily design it without the need for complex mathematics. This unique text teaches the whole process of structural design for architects, including selection of suitable materials, finding a suitable configuration, finding forces and size members, designing appropriate connections, and proposing a feasible method of erection. Chapters are centered on the design of a whole structure, from conception through construction planning.

The third edition of the popular Structural and Stress Analysis provides the reader with a comprehensive introduction to all types of structural and stress analysis. Starting with an explanation of the basic principles of statics, the book proceeds to normal and shear force, and bending moments and torsion. Building on the success of the prior edition, this edition features new material on structural dynamics and fatigue, and additional discussion of Eurocode compliance in design of beams. With worked examples, practice problems, and extensive illustrations, this book provides an all-in-one resource for students and professionals interested in learning structural analysis. Comprehensive overview of structural and stress analysis Numerous worked examples and end-of-chapter problems Extensively illustrated to help visualize concepts
