    Simplified Structural Analysis and Design for Architects covers the basics of structural analysis and design in clear, practical terms. The book clarifies complex engineering topics through accessible, detailed examples and sample problems.

    Early chapters discuss the principles of statics, strength of materials, and structural analysis which represent the underlying basic material of structures and structural technology. The second part of the text focuses on steel structures, wood structures, and concrete structures, and outlines the design methods of some structural elements in a simplified manner and using some typical design examples. This edition includes two new chapters on the analysis of indeterminate structures and the simplified analysis of concrete indeterminate structures. The final chapters of the book discuss the analysis of indeterminate structures.

    Concise and to the point, Simplified Structural Analysis and Design for Architects is particularly suitable for undergraduate and graduate architecture courses and courses in structural technology. The book is also a useful tool for practicing architects wishing to review the topic, and architecture graduates who are preparing for the licensing examination.
