For courses in Statics, Strength of Materials, and Structural Principles in Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Technology. Taking a visually-oriented approach, Statics and Strength of Materials for Architecture and Building Construction, Third Edition, presents basic structural concepts in an easily understood manner. Written for students of architecture, building construction, and engineering technology programs, the text introduces structural theory without relying on calculus. Instead it uses building examples and illustrations to supplement the text and introduce mathematically based material in a non-threatening way. This edition features many fully-worked example problems, a new supplemental CD-ROM, a section on retaining walls and clearer connections between written and visual elements.
