Building structures / James Ambrose, Patrick Tripeny

By: Ambrose, James [autor]Contributor(s): Tripeny, Patrick [autor]Publisher: New Jersey : John Wiley & Sons, ©2012Edition: 3rd edDescription: xv,528 páginas : ilustraciones ; 28 cmContent type: texto Media type: no mediado Carrier type: volumenISBN: 9780470542606Subject(s): Análisis estructural (ingeniería) | Diseño estructura | Tecnología e ingeniería | TecnologíaDDC classification: 624.17
Contents:
Basic concepts. -- Investigation of structures. -- Strucural elements. -- Wood structures. -- Steel structures. -- Concrete structures. -- Masonry structures. -- Building foundations and site structures. -- Lateral-force effects. -- Building structures desing examples.
Summary: Structural desing is an essential element of the building process, yet one of the most difficult to learn. While structural engineers do the detailed consulting work for a building project, architects need to know enough structural theory and analysis to design a building. Most text on structures for architects focus narrowly on the mathematical analysis of isolated structural components, yet building structures looks at the general concepts with selected computations to understand the role of the structure as a building subsystem-without the complicated mathematics.
