Overview

Requiring little in the way of mathematic ability, but providing much information, this guide shows readers how they can understand and predict how a building and its materials will perform when exposed to a variety of external forces (mechanics). New information in this edition includes an analysis of indeterminate structures and the ultimate strength resistance of those structures. A greater emphasis is also placed on the fundamentals, providing professionals with simple concise solutions to common structural problems. Updated code and technology information is included, as are many more illustrations, and a wealth of problems and answers for self-study.
