For courses in Statics, Strength of Materials, and Structural Principles in Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Technology.
Taking a visually-oriented approach, Statics and Strength of Materials for Architecture and Building Construction, Third Edition, presents basic structural concepts in an easily understood manner. Written for students of architecture, building construction, and engineering technology programs, the text introduces structural theory without relying on calculus. Instead it uses building examples and illustrations to supplement the text and introduce mathematically based material in a non-threatening way. This edition features many fully-worked example problems, a new supplemental CD-ROM, a section on retaining walls and clearer connections between written and visual elements.

The first edition of Statics and Strength of Materials for Architecture and Building Construction was widely considered one of the finest books in the field. The illustration program, custom crafted by Kevin Kane, tells a clear graphical story about the principles of structural analysis in the design and construction of buildings.
Intended for students and professionals in architecture, construction, and civil engineering technology, this text is intended as the next step after a basic introduction to structures. A highly visual, non-calculus approach is employed. Organized into two parts, the first part of the book covers statics while the second part covers the strength of materials.
