BUILDING DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION HANDBOOK Frederick S. Merritt (Deceased) & Jonathan T. Ricketts

The sixth edition of the Building Design and Construction Handbook maintains the original objectives of previous editions which gained widespread acceptance among users. These objectives are to provide in a single volume a compendium of the best of the current knowledge and practices in building design and construction. This information would be of greatest use to those who have to make decisions affecting the selection of engineering materials and construction methods. Emphasis is placed on fundamental principles and practical applications, with special attention to simplified procedures. Frequent reference is made to other sources where additional authoritative information may be obtained, such as architectural and engineering societies, manufacturers associations, and the Internet. An extensive index is provided to assist the reader in locating topics within the book.
