NEW STRUCTURAL SYSTEM STANDARDS FOR DESIGNING MODERN BUILDINGS For the first time in nearly 40 years, here is a completely new professional handbook for designing structural systems in architecture. Based on a thorough reexamination of all the old formulas and guidelines in light of the latest environmental research and digital technology, this volume provides essential criteria for designing WOOD, STEEL, ALUMINUM, CONCRETE, MASONRY, even FABRIC structures for any building, from total systems to tiny details. Best of all, this volume's interactive CD-ROM allows you to solve the most complex problems at lightning speed! It's incredibly easy. Simply access the formula you need, click on the variable you want to solve, enter numerical values for the other unknowns, click COMPUTE--and there's your answer! No math! No mistakes! Together this thick volume and its accompanying disk offer you fingertip access to these invaluable aids and features: * Text guidelines for selecting and sizing more than 220 structural system components in modern buildings * New and accurate formulas for impact loads, horizontal shear, metal decking, staircases, and many more design scenarios * Concise no-math menus for each formula that describes each unknown (No more rummaging through the text for the meaning of an unknown.) * 360 illustrations and 57 sizing tables that summarize operation of buildings, from tiny detectors to total management systems * Latest environmental considerations relating to siting and comfort Created by an architect with more than 40 years' experience in the field, Architectural Engineering Design: Structural Systems provides you with near-instant solutions to hundreds of complex problems--leading you to less time wasted, less dependence on outside specialists, fewer change orders, faster turn-around time, less exposure to litigation, and happier clients. ALL OF WHICH ADD UP TO EXTRAORDINARY BOTTOM-LINE BENEFITS!This text and CD-ROM on architectural engineering design for structural systems includes over 1000 equations for all building types, 300 illustrations and 100 tables; guidance on architectural and structural considerations; and ...
