With a focus on how structures really work, this book offers single-volume coverage of all major topics in structural analysis and design. Discussing concepts from both an engineering and architectural perspective, it explores structural behavior, structural analysis and design within a building context. This edition features a new co-author, new graphic format and expanded coverage in the areas of computer-aided analysis techniques, design of multi-story buildings, shell structures and cable supported beams. Reinforcing the real-world perspective, each book contains Multiframe structural analysis software to engage readers in sophisticated analysis and design activities.

"This is a good text, and I think far outstrips many competing texts. I always recommend my students buy this text for the course and to use it in the future as a well-illustrated text that deals with most of the key issues and goes beyond to show how the principles of structural design are incorporated into practice." — Harry Giles, University of Michigan
"It is overall a very interesting text, addressing architecture students and design issues that go beyond stress and strain. It deals with typology, morphology, and configuration, which few texts are able to do. In this sense it spans engineering and architecture very well. The illustrations are great, and they are exactly what they should be in a book that is about principles. They are clear, well-drawn, well related to the text." — Michele Chiuini, Ball State University
This text contains coverage of all the major topics of structural analysis in both a qualitative and quantitative manner. It is a useful resource for architects, constructors, and engineers, and is a great teaching tool for many courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. This elegant presentation of physical principles founded in the field of mechanics can be used by designers and builders as an aid to understanding the behavior of existing structural forms and in devising new approaches.New to this edition:
