Description - Structural Analysis of Historic Buildings by J. Stanley Rabun

Structural analysis is the process by which the materials and systems that hold a building together are examined. When problems surface, structural analysis is carried out by structural engineers to determine the best course of corrective action. Architects must also have a basic understanding of structural analysis in order to design buildings that perform efficiently and to work effectively with other members of the construction team. In addition, they need to carry out structural analysis when they plan to modify an existing building. For anyone who is modifying historic buildings, this is a guide to the technical data and calculation methods that were available to architects and engineers at the time a material or system was originally used. The practical information offers a basis for modern certification by the professional who is responsible for the renewed life of a structure. It includes chapters on foundation systems, walls and columns, floor systems, and roof systems; and offers access to hard-to-find data and diagrams, taken directly from original sources, including data that has long been unavailable.
