The authors’ second textbook, Structure for Architects: A Case Study in Steel, Wood, and Reinforced Concrete Design, is a follow-up to their previous book, which was published in PDF format. A primer on structure for architects, focusing on the conceptual understanding of structural design while using terms and terminology that are easy to understand. This book focuses on structural rules that are applied to the design of typical structural members in a diagrammatic body building. These members include a girder, a beam, and a column. The laws, the theory, and the method of the structural design are all illustrated in this book through the use of a single Case Study that is spread throughout three major materials. The Case Study moves on methodically for each type of material, beginning with the determination of tributary areas and masses based on a member’s choice and design.
This book examines the frequent difference that exists between the ways in which engineers and architects comprehend and process information. Engineers tend to place a greater emphasis on technical aspects, whilst architects tend to place a greater emphasis on visual concepts. Through the utilization of a distinctly thematic Case Study, this ebook provides readers with a knowledge of fundamental engineering principles. This book will be of interest to architecture professionals as well as students who are looking to comprehend the application of structural rules in connection to the design of wooden, metal, and concrete structures. The emphasis of the book is on the conceptual knowledge of structural design.
