Structure for Architects: A Case Study in Steel, Wood, and Reinforced Concrete Design?is a sequel to the authors? first text,?Structure for Architects: A Primer emphasizing the conceptual understanding of structural design in simple language and terms. This book focuses on structural principles applied to the design of typical structures ? a beam, a girder, and a column ? in a diagrammatic frame building. Through the application of a single Case Study across three key materials, the book illustrates the theory, principles, and process of structural design.?

The Case Study progresses step by step for each material, from determining tributary areas and loads through design. The book addresses?the frequent disparity between the way architects and engineers perceive and process information, with engineers focusing on technical aspects and architects focusing on visual concepts.

Structure for Architects: A Case Study in Steel, Wood, and Reinforced Steel?presents readers with an understanding of fundamental engineering principles through a uniquely thematic Case Study. Focusing on the conceptual understanding of structural design, this book will be of interest to architecture students and professionals looking to understand the application of structural principles in relation to steel, wood, and concrete design.??
