Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A revision of the 1979 edition, part of a series on simplified design of building structures. Looks at the fundamental requirements and features of structural design from the problem of developing a whole structural system for a defined architectural situation in which the general form and usage is predetermined. Suitable for individual study or classroom work for readers who are not professional architects or designers, and may or may not become one. Does assume some experience in general structural design.
