Download Building Structures : A Conceptual Approach – M. Millais pdf
Structures abound in the world, both natural and constructed – trees, tables, cranes and bridges amongst others. This book, with numerous diagrams, explains how structures behave by introducing the necessary concepts that are essential for a proper understanding. The key concepts such as load paths, stress distribution and bending moments are explained by the use of diagrams without recourse to mathematics. It is highly suitable for students that require an understanding of structural behaviour or for practitioners in the building industry who need to be clear about the role structures play in the design and construction of buildings.
