Overview

The first edition of Statics and Strength of Materials for Architecture and Building Construction was widely considered one of the finest books in the field. The illustration program, custom crafted by Kevin Kane, tells a clear graphical story about the principles of structural analysis in the design and construction of buildings.

Intended for students and professionals in architecture, construction, and civil engineering technology, this text is intended as the next step after a basic introduction to structures. A highly visual, non-calculus approach is employed. Organized into two parts, the first part of the book covers statics while the second part covers the strength of materials.

    Features of this new edition include:
  • Reviews of software programs currently available for structural analysis.
  • A new chapter on steel connections.
  • New illustrations added to aid reader understanding.
  • Updated reference tables and specifications.
