KEY BENEFIT: Comprehensive and flexible, this book offers single-volume coverage of all major topics in structural analysis and design -- with particular focus on structural behavior and design issues.

KEY TOPICS: The book begins with a self-contained, non-mathematical overview of the fundamental concepts of analysis and design, and then examines, individually, the common structural types used in buildings (e.g., trusses, beams, arches/cables) -- discussing each in terms of both qualitative and quantitative analysis and then design methods -- all illustrated with example analyses of real structures. It concludes with a unique discussion of the logic of structural design as a part of the larger building design process.

MARKET: For readers interested in Structures or Structural Analysis and Design.
