The bestselling structural design reference, fully updated and revised Simplified Engineering for Architects and Builders is the go-to reference on structural design, giving architects and designers a concise introduction to the structures commonly used for typical buildings. The clear, accessible presentation is designed to give you the essential engineering information you need without getting bogged down in excess math, making this book an ideal reference for busy design professionals. This new 12th edition has been completely revised to reflect the latest standards and practices. The instructor site includes a complete suite of teaching resources, including an instructor's manual and a PowerPoint presentation. Structural design is an essential component of the architect's repertoire, and engineering principles are at the foundation of every sound structure. You need to know the physics, but you don't necessarily need to know all of the math. This book gives you exactly what you need without losing you in a tangle of equations, so you can quickly grasp and apply the material. Understand fundamental concepts like forces, loading, and reactions Learn how to design for wood, steel, or concrete construction Study structural design standards and develop sound structural systems Determine the best possible solutions to difficult design challenges The industry-leading reference for over 80 years, Simplified Engineering for Architects and Builders is the definitive guide to practical structural design.

The standard in the field, now in its seventh revised edition. Long known for its accessible and concise presentation of basic structural materials and their characteristics, this text is the enduringly popular general reference for architects and builders. Beginning with the principles of structural mechanics, covers structural masonry, steel, wood, and concrete; design for lateral forces; elements of dynamic behavior; plywood shear walls; diaphragms; rigid frames; and structures with internal pins. Includes new material on the design of total structural systems for buildings. Each topic is introduced by general discussion and is supported by a wealth of illustrative examples. Includes exercises, with answers.

The comprehensive reference on the basics of structural analysis and design, now updated with the latest considerations of building technology Structural design 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 texts 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. New to this edition is a complete discussion of the LRFD method of design, supplemented by the ASD method, in addition to: The fundamentals of structural analysis and design for architects A glossary, exercise problems, and a companion website and instructor's manual Material ideally suited for preparing for the ARE exam Profusely illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs, and including new case studies, Building Structures, Third Edition is perfect for nonengineers to understand and visualize structural design.

"Structure for Architects explains the fundamental structural concepts required for architects and architectural technologists using a highly illustrated approach and real-world examples. With an intuitive, easy-to-read and graphically-friendly format, Structure for Architects is meant for the visual thinker and those that think conceptually. The intuitive approach demystifies structural principles by showing them in the context of everyday situations. Eschewing complicated mathematics, just enough technical information is presented so the reader will not be intimidated by detailed engineering"--
