Book Description :

Glass is a popular cladding material for modern buildings. The trend for steel-framed, glass-clad buildings instead of those constructed with traditional materials (such as brick and concrete) has inherent problems. These include the performance of architectural glass in extreme climatic events such as windstorms and heavy snow loads and earthquakes. This book reviews the state-of-the-art in glass and glazing technology to resist failure due to these natural events. The first chapter addresses building code seismic requirements for architectural glass in the United States, followed by a chapter on glazing and curtain wall systems to resist earthquakes. The next two chapters discuss snow loads on building envelopes and glazing systems, and types and design of glazing systems to resist snow loads. Other chapters consider wind pressures and the impact of wind-borne debris as well as special types of glazing systems to resist windstorms. A final chapter reviews test methods for the performance of glazing systems during earthquakes and extreme climatic events.

Book Description :

Glass is a popular cladding material for modern buildings. The trend for steel-framed, glass-clad buildings instead of those using traditional materials such as brick and concrete has inherent problems. These include, for example, the performance of architectural glass in extreme climatic events such as windstorms and heavy snow loads and also during earthquakes. This book reviews the state-of-the-art in glass and glazing technology to resist failure due to these natural events. Building code seismic requirements for architectural glass in the United States are considered first of all, followed by a chapter on glazing and curtain wall systems to resist earthquakes. The next two chapters discuss snow loads on building envelopes and glazing systems, and types and design of glazing systems to resist snow loads. Wind pressures and the impact of wind-borne debris are then considered in the next group of chapters which also review special types of glazing systems to resist windstorms. A final chapter reviews test methods for the performance of glazing systems during earthquakes and extreme climatic events. With its distinguished editor and team of contributors, Architectural glass to resist seismic and extreme climatic events is an essential resource for architects, structural, civil and architectural engineers, researchers and those involved in designing and specifying building glazing and cladding materials in areas where severe windstorms, snow and earthquakes are a threat. Considers the state of the art in glass and glazing technology to resist failure due to extreme climatic events Reviews specific building techniques and test methods to enhance glazing performance during snow storms, wind storms and earthquakes

Book Description :

Architectural students have for generations learned the essence of building design through the pages of "Graphic Standards": the drawings, charts, detailed illustrations, originally developed by architects George Ramsey and Harold Sleeper, that represent building components and systems, including everything from door frames to roof designs, to air ducts to outdoor sports facilities. Beginning ten years ago, Wiley began offering a student edition of the primary book, Architectural Graphic Standards, which was created as an abridgment of the prior edition of that book. This new student edition will be an abridgment of the present 9th edition, offering all the essential features of that very successful edition in an easily accessible and affordable format. Also, new to this student edition will be a greater offering of "Design guidelines," giving the student and instructor alike greater opportunity to use this publication as a teaching tool.
