Promoting and underlining the importance of structural thinking, Structural Systems: Behaviour and Design will provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the behaviour of a wide range of structural systems based on the load-carrying mechanisms involved.

Bringing together a wide array of structural types and covering the behaviour and design of both steel and reinforced concrete (prestressing inclusive), the author employs an integrated qualitative and quantitative approach to the examination of each structural element. Topics are introduced in a logical manner and treated in a predominantly practical way, building on concepts discussed and explained in previous chapters, providing readers with a sound understanding of the universal principles of structural behaviour, thus enabling them to apply safe conceptual and preliminary designs, whatever design codes they are working with.

Volume 1 provides readers with the fundamental concepts, predominantly focusing on plane structural systems, including beams, frames, arches and cable structures. Supported throughout with illustrative diagrams, readers of all levels of experience will find this an accessible and authoritative text, enabling a solid understanding of structural behaviour without dependence on computer-generated models. 

This is the first in a two-volume series. Volume 2 focuses on the more advanced topics of spatial structural systems, foundations and dynamics. Read more about Volume 2 here.
