Here is an extremely portable reference that offers all you need to know to design buildings that "work" successfully. Small enough to slip into a pocket, this volume's 512 pages are packed with: 420 architectural engineering design scenarios; 1300 algebraic formulas; 125 ink drawings and graphs; 130 tables and schedules; and, a pint-sized Bible that enables you to make those spur-of-the-moment decisions in the office, on the site, with a client, or with a contractor that so often divide those who truly know what they are doing from those who think they know.Whether your architectural concerns are structural, climate control, plumbing, electrical, illumination, acoustics, or general design, this distillation of many larger volumes of architectural engineering science will lay the foundation for the design of any building - from shed to skyscraper anywhere in the world - that will satisfy designer and client alike. The book is a beautiful, entertaining, enjoyable, and practical reference.

"Robert Parmley, P.E.: "I agree with Butler that most handbooks present more theory than practical information. The shirtsleeve designer who is constantly under pressure to meet deadlines certainly needs quick, accurate, and reliable data. There is a very strong need for this handbook. It could also be very valuable in the classroom, or as a refresher course for EIT and architectural state board exams.About the Author:
