Architect's Guidebooks to Structures


About the Series

The Architect's Guidebooks to Structures series addresses key concepts in structures to help you understand and incorporate structural elements into your work. The series covers a wide range of principles, beginning with a detailed overview of structural systems, material selection and processes in Introduction to Structures; following with topics such as Concrete Design, Steel Design, Masonry Design and Timber Design to equip you with the basics to design key elements with these materials; and finishing with Special Structures Topics, presenting you with information on geotechnical considerations, retrofit, blast, cladding design, vibration and sustainability.

Designed as quick reference materials, the Architect's Guidebooks to Structures titles will provide architecture students and professionals with the key knowledge necessary to understand and design structures. Each book includes imperial and metric units, rules of thumb, clear design examples, worked problems, discussions on the practical aspects of designs, and preliminary member selection tables; all in a handy, portable size.
