Building structures by James E Ambrose( Book )

42 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new edition continues its legacy as the reference of choice for architects studying contemporary issues and design practices for building structures by taking a conceptual approach that foregos complicated mathematics. Looking at the role of the structure as a building subsystem, it offers the fundamentals of computational methods for design of wood, steel, and reinforced concrete structures, along with new material such as discussion of the LRFD method of design. Profusely illustrated with new case studies, this go-to guide is perfect for non-engineers to understand and visualize structural design"--

23 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book covers all commonly used steel systems, practices, and research in the field, reinforced with examples of practical designs and general building structural systems. The book has been updated to conform to current building codes, design practices, and industry standards. Featuring a wealth of illustrations, expanded text examples, exercise problems, and a helpful glossary."--Jacket
Simplified mechanics and strength of materials by Harry Parker( Book )

24 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Requiring little in the way of mathematic ability, but providing much information, this guide shows readers how they can understand and predict how a building and its materials will perform when exposed to a variety of external forces (mechanics). New information in this edition includes an analysis of indeterminate structures and the ultimate strength resistance of those structures. A greater emphasis is also placed on the fundamentals, providing professionals with simple concise solutions to common structural problems. Updated code and technology information is included, as are many more illustrations, and a wealth of problems and answers for self-study
