Building Structures – James Ambrose, Patrick Tripeny -3rd Edition


The full reference on the fundamentals of structural analysis and design, now updated with the latest considerations of construction technology. Structural design is an essential element of the building process, however, one of the most difficult to learn.
While structural engineers do the detailed advisory work for a construction project, architects need to know enough theory and structural analysis to design a building.
Most structural texts for architects focus closely on the mathematical analysis of isolated structural components; however, building structures must be viewed as one of the general concepts, with calculations selected to understand the role of the structure of a subsystem building, without complicated mathematics.
