qAnalyzing Building Structuresq provides critical exercises to help students understand the fundamentals of building structures and how to design structures that will withstand forces such as self-weight, live loads, wind, and seismic forces. The book also provides comprehensive solution techniques and necessary vocabulary to help students and professionals in architecture, building construction, and civil engineering gain a deeper understanding of the structural principles and analytical methods of building design. This book has been written to help readers learn about the fundamentals of building structures by involving them in the kinds of work that design professionals architects, engineers, and builders encounter in the course of designing and constructing building structures. It provides valuable practice to aid understanding of basic architectural structural concepts, as well as developing solutions for buildings and related structural design. This unique volume also features: - Many 2D and 3D drawings, diagrams, and photographs supporting main concepts. - Real world problems illustrating structural behavior and design of building elements. - Clear instructions for each exercise. - Partial solutions to set students down the correct path for solving exercises.
