Structural Design presents the conceptual and practical underpinnings of basic building design and technology in a single comprehensive source. It provides essential coverage of the integral relationships of structural/architectural form and spatial organization, and an understanding of the impact of load configurations and other key determinants of design. Essential principles as well as structural solutions are visually reinforced with hundreds of architectural drawings, photographs, and other illustrations, making this book truly architect-friendly.

  • In-depth coverage of steel, wood, reinforced concrete, and masonry, including lateral force generation and design
  • Over 1,000 illustrations and photographs
  • Real-world examples, sample problems, and useful references throughout
  • Conventional and SI unit systems
