Structural Design of Buildings

Structural Design of Buildings 

Smith, Paul

Preference :

The intention of this publication is to embark on a journey taking the reader through a brief history of buildings, how the construction of buildings has evolved over the years, and then examining in more detail the structure of buildings and their principal elements. We also examine other factors that affect the stability and structure of buildings, including ground investigations and environmental factors, and detail the materials used in their construction. Finally, we examine structural failures of buildings, their likely causes, and common remedies.
