Summary
"Both natural and man-made structures abound in the world: trees, tables, cranes and bridges amongst others. All these structures carry loads, but how they do so is not obvious from casual observation. This book explains how structures behave. Key concepts such as load paths, stress distribution and bending moments are explained by the use of numerous diagrams and without recourse to mathematics. There are no technical prerequisites for reading this book, making it highly suitable for both students who require an understanding of structural behaviour and for practitioners in the building industry who need to be clear about the role of structures in the design and construction of buildings."--BOOK JACKET
