Basic Structures for Engineers and Architects by Philip Garrison pdf free download.

This book provides students of civil engineering and architecture with a grounding in the fundamentals of structures, and a ‘feel’ for the way buildings behave structurally. The book aims to explain structural concepts clearly, using analogies and examples to illustrate the points, and it expresses mathematical aspects of the subject in a straightforward way. Fully worked solutions to examples available online for readers.

This work starts with basics such as forces, vectors, moments, basic beam and truss calculations, etc. It includes common misconceptions about forces and the loads carried by given truss members. Many examples of solved problems are also included.

I found the section on the method of joints, as applied to diagonal members, especially helpful.

Review

‘Philip Garrison approaches the subject in a gentle user-friendly style with clear explanations and numerous explanatory diagrams supported by well-worked examples and a number of exercises.’ Building Engineer January 2006
‘This book is well thought out, well written and would provide a good introduction to basic principles.It is aimed at those just starting their studies, but would be useful to those requiring a recap of first principles.’ The Structural Engineer Augsut 2006
