About the Author:

Paul W. McMullin is an educator, structural engineer, and photographer. He holds degrees in mechanical and civil engineering, and is a licensed engineer in numerous states. He is a founding partner of Ingenium Design, providing innovative solutions to industrial and manufacturing facilities. Currently an adjunct professor at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, USA, he has taught for a decade and loves bringing project-based learning to the classroom.

Jonathan S. Price is a structural engineer and adjunct professor at Philadelphia University in Pennsylvania, USA, honored with the Distinguished Adjunct Faculty Award in 2006. He holds a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degree from the University of Colorado, USA, and a Master of Science degree in civil engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia, USA, and has worked in various capacities in a variety of design firms.

Review:

"In an era of greater demand for building system integration, communication has never been more important. McMullin and Price provide a very accessible and basic primer for the education and practical application of structural engineering for architects. Maintaining practices as consultant engineers while teaching in both engineering and architecture, the authors have transcribed this experience into a very serviceable aid to architects for evaluating the initial selection of structural systems and estimating the dimensional attributes of component elements." - Prescott Muir, FAIA, Professor, School of Architecture, University of Utah, USA
