This book was intended for architects and students of architecture. The author felt there were many books written on the mathematics of construction, but none adapted to the specific needs of the architect. The chapters cover such topics as the parts of buildings that require special attention, creating strong floors, positioning weight on a beam, distributing load on floors, rules for safe loads, rules for headers, compound strains in beams, resistance to flexure, limits of elasticity, and much more. A helpful resource that covers many unusual topics.
