Samenvatting

This is a one-stop book for knowing everything important about building structures. Self-contained and with no prerequisites needed, it is suitable for both general readers and building professionals.

-follow the history of structural understanding;
-grasp the concepts of structural behaviour via step-by-step explanations;
-apply these concepts to a simple building;
-see how these concepts apply to real buildings, from Durham Cathedral to the Bank of China;
-use these concepts to define the design process;
-see how these concepts inform design choices;
-understand how engineering and architecture have diverged, and what effect this had;
-learn to do simple but relevant numerical calculations for actual structures;
-understand when dynamics are important;
-follow the development of progressive collapse prevention;
-enter the world of modern structural theory;
-see how computers can be used for structural analysis;
-learn how to organise and design a successful project.

With more than 500 pages and over 1100 user-friendly diagrams, this book is a must for anyone who would like to understand the fascinating world of structures.
