Description

For Introduction to Structures, a required course for students of architecture, engineering technology, construction technology, and construction management.

 

This introductory paperback text takes an informal approach to introducing "allowable stress" structures to students who need to understand basic structures but don't necessarily plan to become engineers — for example, students of architecture, engineering technology, construction technology, and construction management. The text does not cover calculus and complex theory yet provides students with the understanding of the fundamental structural concepts required of their respective professions. The text features nearly 400 high-quality graphics that help students grasp key concepts.
