Book Description :

A new edition of Francis D.K. Ching's illustrated guide tostructural design Structures are an essential element of the building process, yetone of the most difficult concepts for architects to grasp. Whilestructural engineers do the detailed consulting work for a project,architects should have enough knowledge of structural theory andanalysis to design a building. Building StructuresIllustrated takes a new approach to structural design, showinghow structural systems of a building—such as an integratedassembly of elements with pattern, proportions, and scale—arerelated to the fundamental aspects of architectural design. Thebook features a one-stop guide to structural design in practice, athorough treatment of structural design as part of the entirebuilding process, and an overview of the historical development ofarchitectural materails and structure. Illustrated throughout withChing's signature line drawings, this new Second Edition isan ideal guide to structures for designers, builders, andstudents.

Book Description :

Rather than relying on separate literature in the fields of structural engineering, architecture, construction and history, this text presents the field of structures holistically in terms of building and architecture. Buildings are studied from all points of view: geometrical, aesthetic, historical, functional, environmental and construction - providing the broadest treatment of structures available.* Descriptive, analytical, and graphical treatment of topics are presented with nearly equal emphasis. * Numerous case studies throughout exemplify structural concepts and develop a feeling for structure and form, instead of supporting specific architectural styles or structural acrobatics. * Teaching in the context of building structure and form (i.e., low-rise, high-rise, long-span, etc.) allows students to understand structures on real, not abstract, mathematical terms. * Structural systems (i.e., frames, arches, space frames, soft shells, etc.) and how they aid in making space and enhancing the formal presentation of a structure are discussed in detail. * Chapter 3 deals with approximate design methods for steel, wood, reinforced concrete, and prestressed concrete according to the

Book Description :

Although the disciplines of architecture and structural engineering have both experienced their own historical development, their interaction has resulted in many fascinating and delightful structures. To take this interaction to a higher level, there is a need to stimulate the inventive and creative design of architectural structures and to persuade architects and structural engineers to further collaborate in this process, exploiting together new concepts, applications and challenges. This set of book of abstracts and full paper searchable CD-ROM presents selected papers presented at the 3rd International Conference on Structures and Architecture Conference (ICSA2016), organized by the School of Architecture of the University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal (July 2016), to promote the synergy in the collaboration between the disciplines of architecture and structural engineering. The set addresses all major aspects of structures and architecture, including building envelopes, comprehension of complex forms, computer and experimental methods, concrete and masonry structures, educating architects and structural engineers, emerging technologies, glass structures, innovative architectural and structural design, lightweight and membrane structures, special structures, steel and composite structures, the borderline between architecture and structural engineering, the history of the relationship between architects and structural engineers, the tectonics of architectural solutions, the use of new materials, timber structures and more. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects of the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields. This set is intended for both researchers and practitioners, including architects, structural and construction engineers, builders and building consultants, constructors, material suppliers and product manufacturers, and other experts and professionals involved in the design and realization of architectural, structural and infrastructural projects.
