Unique in perspective, approach, and coverage, this book is written specifically to introduce architectural, construction and civil engineering technicians to elementary engineering concepts, design principles, and practices. Using a practical, non-classical, non-calculus approach, it combines -- in one volume -- full coverage of the statics, strengths of materials, and building structure analysis/design concepts that technicians must master for the demands of today's changing workplace. Provides nearly 180 examples and over 200 supporting illustrations and photographs, including photos of buildings under construction and in sequence. Contains a very comprehensive set of tables of structural products and their properties. For anyone studying or interested in architectural technology, architectural engineering technology, structural technology, structural engineering technology, civil engineering technology, construction engineering technology, or construction management.

This book is great for people who have just stared and for people who have been at for a long time. I even think 12&13 year olds would like it.
