The book is written at a fundamental level for students of engineering and construction technology programs and provides these students with the foundation for successful completion of future design courses. Equilibrium, trusses, frames, centroids and moment of inertia and their relation to the concepts of vectors and equilibrium are covered in detail. All topics within the topics of stress and strain, strength of materials, beam, column and connection design are integrated within the text. The latest guidelines for steel, concrete and timber are used in covering design.
