9780132058810: The Principles of Building Construction

Using an innovative, integrated approach, this book explores the linkages between the science of materials and the practices of construction to help future architects and builders deal more critically with the ever-increasing array of new materials and the consequent increase in the complexities of construction. This book presents and integrates the scientific principles of building materials and construction and their relationships with actual practices. Issues are covered that are relevant to every building type regardless of whether the primary material used in the building is wood, masonry, steel, or concrete. It begins with a brief treatment of building codes and standards since all building construction must conform to building codes as a minimum requirement. It provides full-chapter coverage of structural, thermal, fire related properties, transparency, air infiltration, water vapor and (bulk) water penetration, and dimensional control in buildings. It offers a flexible organization, so content can be covered sequentially or in parts. The U.S. system of units is used primarily throughout, but gives the SI system equal treatment.
