Ideal for anyone interested in buildings and for all types of building professionals, " Building Structures "describes and explains the behaviour of structures in straightforward no-nonsense terms without calculations. Over 1000 user-friendly diagrams guide the user from first principles and a brief history of structural design, through all the essential concepts needed for understanding the buildings around us and the processes involved in their design and construction.

Finally, the book shows how a simple approach can be taken to mathematical calculations, enabling deeper understanding to be accessible to all.
