## Strength of structural materials: understanding basic structural designThis practical and well-illustrated text/reference examines the strength of building materials as required for actual applications by architects and structural engineers. It covers evaluation of internal stresses and strains of structures, structural deformations, statically indeterminate reactions and interreactions of structural constraints, and more.. |
