Fundamentals of Building Construction: Materials & Methods Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An introduction to the art of building, it has been revised and updated to reflect changes in the industry. Describes the materials used since ancient times—wood, stone, brick and the techniques by which they are made into buildings today—before proceeding to structural steel, reinforced and prestressed concrete, float glass, extruded aluminum, advanced gypsum products, synthetic rubber compounds and plastics. Deals with whole systems of building including foundations, framing, roofing, interiors, electrical and mechanical systems. Each chapter contains a summary, list of key terms and concepts, review questions and references. Illustrated with over 300 line drawings and 700 photographs.

Book News Annotation:

This revision of the authoritative handbook on common building materials and methods includes current information on foundations, new uses for plastics in construction and more. Fifty new photographs and 25 new line drawings further enhance the existing program of over 900 illustrations.
