A compact, easy-to-read and mathematically accessible reference for practicing construction professionals wishing to gain, or regain, a working knowledge of structures--one that will enable them to envision how structures resist loads and that will prepare them to collaborate effectively with other construction professionals while analyzing, designing, and constructing structures. Using extensive descriptions and a minimum of mathematics, the handbook focuses on the key concepts of structures--and their applications in unique, real-life problems--taken from traditional engineering topics in statics, mechanics of materials, structural analysis, timber design, steel design, reinforced concrete design, soil mechanics, and foundation design. For engineers, architects, construction contractors, construction project managers, inspectors, and others involved in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other structures.
