Why Buildings Fall Down: How Structures Fail
Matthys Levy
039331152X
June 1994
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Structural engineers Levy and Salvadori have written a well-paced, highly informative, nontechnical work describing failures in a variety of structures such as buildings, bridges, and dams. Salvadori wrote Why Buildings Stand Up (Norton, 1990), so this is a natural complement. The subject, somewhat grisly in nature, is presented here with respect for the tragedies involved, and yet with a lighthearted pursuit of the truth as to the cause of the failure. Analysis of the failure is discussed and recommendations for improvement are offered, but without the usual condescension hindsight allows. Profuse illustrations by Kevin Woest, well labeled and explained, and several appendixes aid access. An index (not seen) is provided, but no glossary. This fascinating book is easily accessible to laypersons. Highly...


Electrostatics: Exploring, Controlling and Using Static Electricity, Including the Dirod Manual
A. D. Moore
1885540043
November 1997
Paperback
·
 
Noojin Waalker, The Science Teacher Magazine, December 98
Electrostatics is the reader's opportunity to learn from A. D. Moore (1895-1989), the unquestioned authority on static electricity, as he recounts his lifetime of experimentation and invention. It is written in an exceptionally clear and direct prose that the reader might think he/she is actually hearing the author talk about the history of the exploration of electrostatics. Moore's explanations of atomic structure, electrical fields, etc. are so simple; they are easily understood at the high school level. This book is full of information that it will also serve college students well. Examples and historical anecdotes reinforce factual information. Teachers can profit from studying Moore's style of presentation. The first section of the book focuses on the theory...

Shaping Structures: Statics
Waclaw Zalewski
0471289965
February 1998
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In Shaping Structures, an engineer and an architect, both longtime teachers of structures at major American universities, collaborate to present an inspired synthesis of the creative and the technical, explicating both the principles of statics and their application to the fascinating task of finding good form for structures. This richly visual volume features:
* An easily understood development of the fundamentals of statics
* Step-by-step demonstrations, using both numerical and graphical techniques, of simple yet powerful methods for finding form and forces for arched structures, suspended structures, cable-stayed structures, and highly efficient trusses
* 120 photographs and more than 300 crisp drawings that illustrate and explain the magnificent structural triumphs of master architects and...
