The classic guide, now including the International Building Code. Approaching structural design from the viewpoint of a practicing architect, Structural Design, Second Edition is a comprehensive guide to the conceptual and practical underpinnings of basic building design and addresses structures on both a conceptual and numerical level, providing essential coverage of the Cited by: 5. Structural analysis/design is just a procedure- a certain number of steps to follow, which can be learned from thousands of books you can find online (Amazon etc.). and it is not a real structural engineering. I think you should first read a more. Most importantly, it helps architects work with structural consultants and understand all the necessary considerations when designing structural systems. Using a minimum of simple math, this book shows you how to make correct design calculations for structures made from Brand: Wiley. by Pete Silver Will McLean Peter Evans.
Jonathan Ochshorn, in Structural Elements for Architects and Builders, Structural engineering prescriptions tend to be written in the form of unambiguous mathematical relationships. In fact, the seeming authority of these formulations masks a rather different reality: the entire subject area of structures is littered with fundamental uncertainties. structural design calculations are made. It is intended primarily for architects and it is hoped that it will enable students and members of the profession to gain a better understanding of the relationship between structural design and architectural design. The basic structural layouts and approximate element sizes which are given in Chapters 3 to. Aimed at architects as well as students, this book covers the basic principles and natural laws of structural design. It deals with materials, building elements and plan forms. Read more.

The book is “a wonderful example of modernist design thinking that was prevalent in the ’70s and the ’60s,” said Hamish Smyth, a designer at the firm Pentagram told the New York Times.
