This powerful reference tool is packed with broad-ranging material?from fundamental principles to state-of-the-art, seismic-resistant technologies, as well as algorithms that are thoroughly developed to be highly adaptable?offering the most complete guidance to precast bracing systems. Through illustrative examples, the author develops several imaginative approaches used to design constructed buildings. These concepts are detailed to demonstrate the benefits of imaginative problem solving for creating better structural systems based on rational analysis and experimental evidence.
