Understanding Structures is an ideal introductory text for undergraduate students of civil engineering, building, surveying and architecture. It deals with the topics of structural analysis, materials and design, introducing all three topics in an integrated way so that the reader can quickly start to tackle the exciting task of designing real structures. Each stage of the design process is illustrated by a realistic numerical example based on genuine design data, thus enabling the reader to develop a real skill for structural design and to share in the satisfaction, pleasure and excitement of this highly creative process. Learning features include end-of-chapter summaries and exercises, making this a perfect text for self-study as well for the classroom. This new edition has been fully updated to be compatible with Eurocodes throughout.
