With a focus on how structures really work, this book offers single-volume coverage of all major topics in structural analysis and design.Discussing concepts from both an engineering and architectural perspective, it explores structural behavior, structural analysis and design within a building context. This edition features a new co-author, new graphic format and expanded coverage in the areas of computer-aided analysis techniques, design of multi-story buildings, shell structures and cable supported beams. Reinforcing the real-world perspective, each book containsMultiframestructural analysis software to engage readers in sophisticated analysis and design activities.For individuals preparing for the architectural licensing exam.
