Description

This book describes the complete panorama of supporting structures and their function by describing how loads are sustained and transmitted to the ground. With a minimum of mathematics, the reader is guided through the analysis of some of the world’s most famous designs and structures from a civil-engineering perspective.

An intuitive approach is taken - the basics of equilibrium analysis are explained by visualising the internal forces of specific structures with the aid of simple graphical tools.

Ideal for anyone who needs an intuitive and practical approach to the design and appropriate sizing of load-bearing structures.
