Opis: How Structures Work - David Yeomans

Structural engineering is central to the design of a building. How the building behaves when subjected to various forces the weight of the materials used to build it, the weight of the occupants or the traffic it carries, the force of the wind etc is fundamental to its stability. The alliance between architecture and structural engineering is therefore critical to the successful design and completion of the buildings and infrastructure that surrounds us. Yet structure is often cloaked in mathematics which many architects and surveyors find difficult to understand. How Structures Work has been written to explain the behaviour of structures in a clear way without resorting to complex mathematics. This new edition includes a new chapter on construction materials, and significant revisions to, and reordering of the existing chapters. It is aimed at all who require a good qualitative understanding of structures and their behaviour, and as such will be of benefit to students of architecture, architectural history, building surveying and civil engineering. The straightforward, non-mathematical approach ensures it will also be suitable for a wider audience including building administrators, archaeologists and the interested layman.Preface x 1 Brackets and Bridges 1 Cooper s tragedy 2 The Forth Bridge 4 Members in compression 6 The Quebec Bridge 8 Forces in a bracket 9 The design process 13 Stresses 14 2 Stiffening a Beam Girder Bridges 16 The simple truss 22 Tension trusses 27 Girder bridges: The Forth Bridge 31 3 Arches and Suspension Bridges 33 Building an arch 35 Blackfriars Bridge 37 Pontypridd Bridge 39 The forces in an arch 39 Practical issues 41 Forces within the arch ring 43 Edwards s failure 48 An unexpected failure 49 Arch with point load 50 Iron and concrete arches 51 The suspension bridge 54 Arches in buildings: Flying buttresses 57 Arches in walls 60 4 Bringing the Loads to the Ground The Structural Scheme 63 Introduction 63 The alternatives 64 Nature of the loads 66 Choices 68 Flow of forces or action and reaction 71 Describing the structure 73 Structures are three ]dimensional 75 Statically indeterminate structures 76 5 Safe as Houses?
