Unique in perspective, approach, and coverage, this book is written specifically to introduce architectural, construction and civil engineering technicians to elementary engineering concepts, design principles, and practices. Using a practical, non-classical, non-calculus approach, it combines -- in one volume -- full coverage of the statics, strengths of materials, and building structure analysis/design concepts that technicians must master for the demands of today's changing workplace. Provides nearly 180 examples and over 200 supporting illustrations and photographs, including photos of buildings under construction and in sequence. Contains a very comprehensive set of tables of structural products and their properties. For anyone studying or interested in architectural technology, architectural engineering technology, structural technology, structural engineering technology, civil engineering technology, construction engineering technology, or construction management.Maximum bending moment (Mmax) is found by M = XMup - SMdown Mmax occurs at the beam center, as this is where the ... A more complete set of formulas may be found in other sources, such as the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Steel Construction Manual. ... EXERCISES Eleven sets of illustrations and the corresponding free-body diagrams of building-related beams were provided inanbsp;...
