From the Back Cover:

Don't Take the Manufacturer's Word for It!

Everybody knows about pre-engineered buildings -- they now account for almost 70 percent of all new low-rise construction in the United States. But few architects, engineers, or buyers know enough about them. This completely revised and updated reference -- the only one from an author unaffiliated with an industry trade group -- offers valuable and unbiased information that can save you money and time -- and that may even save your building! Full of essential features, tips, and advice, this new Second Edition includes nearly twice the amount of material and illustrations that was in the first edition. It:

* Goes beyond manufacturer-supplied information in pinpointing potential design pitfalls
* Points out specific recurring problems of metal building systems and explains how failures can occur
* Updates recent changes in the building codes and the MBMA manual
* Offers practical information on the design of cold-formed purlins and girts, exposing questionable methods used by some manufacturers
* Includes greatly expanded coverage of purlin bracing
* Supplies a wealth of hard-to-find information on selecting and specifying walls (including problems with specific wall systems)
* Explains critical considerations for MBS foundations not covered in manufacturers' specifications
* Includes several new design examples dealing with selection of primary framing, preliminary design of purlins, girts, and eave struts, design of moment-resisting building foundations, plus a comprehensive case study of additions to existing buildings
* Lays out new information on renovation of primary frames, secondary members, roofing, and walls
* Adds a wealth of information on metal roofing including best-practice design details
* Supplies new end-of-chapter review questions
* Provides roof-to-foundation understanding of all metal building design tasks involved in specifying or evaluating metal building systems

Plus, this book gives you sample specifications that protect the buyer, help with avoiding construction problems, sources of additional useful information, renovation tips, and a look at leading-edge industry trends. This is the one book that is a must-have for any professional involved with pre-engineered buildings.

About the Author:

Alexander Newman, P.E., F.ASCE, is managing engineer in the Natick, Massachusetts, office of Exponent Failure Analysis Associates, a nationwide company involved in accident and collapse investigations. He has more than 25 years of experience in building design, construction, and failure investigation. His areas of expertise include design and failure analysis of pre-engineered metal buildings, metal roofs, and other structures. Immediately prior to joining Exponent, he was principal structural engineer with Maguire Group Inc., an architectural, engineering, and planning firm with the offices throughout the Northeast. His earlier experience includes engineering positions with a consulting engineering firm, a light-gauge steel contractor, and a precast concrete manufacturer. He has also served as manager of the fabrication division with a steel fabricator. Mr. Newman has been responsible for structural design of many projects throughout the country utilizing metal building systems and conventional structures. His experience includes both new building construction and renovation projects ranging from residential to multistory industrial facilities, including a Boston Edison switching and conversion station that won the 1990 American Consulting Engineers Council of New England Award for Engineering Excellence. Mr. Newman holds an advanced degree in structural engineering from the Moscow Civil Engineering Institute in Russia and a master’s degree in business administration with high honors from Boston University. The first edition of this book received wide acclaim and was translated into Chinese. His other popular engineering textbook, Structural Renovation of Buildings, was published by McGraw-Hill in 2001. Mr. Newman regularly conducts educational seminars on metal building systems and other topics for design professionals and governmental agencies around the country. He has served as expert consultant in litigation involving metal building systems and other structures.
