    Statics and Strength of Materials for Architecture and Building Construction, Fourth Edition, offers students an accessible, visually oriented introduction to structural theory that doesn't rely on calculus. Instead, illustrations and examples of building frameworks and components enable students to better visualize the connection between theoretical concepts and the experiential nature of real buildings and materials. This new edition includes fully worked examples in each chapter, a companion website with extra practice problems, and expanded treatment of load tracing.

    Salient Features

    • Easy-to-follow pedagogy-helps students study more effectively.
    • Visually oriented approach-links structural theory to real buildings and components - Uses numerous illustrations taken from building structures to supplement the text and equations.
    • An emphasis on the use of free-body diagrams-appears in the text - helps students understand the forces acting on a structural member.
    • Many fully worked example problems are included-throughout the text - Give students samples of solution techniques and problem-solving strategies.
