Modern Construction Handbook

  • $ 73.99


The Modern Construction Handbook has become a classic of advanced construction literature, not least due to its regular revisions and clear structure with chapters titled "Material", "Wall", "Roof", "Structure", "Environment" and "Applications".

For the sixth edition, the 3-D illustrations have been brought up to date and in some cases redrawn, and all six chapters have been critically reviewed and updated.

Tried and tested component details, examples focusing on sustainability and energy consumption, and an update on finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) introduced in the last edition set new standards for this handbook which serves as a foundational textbook in many architecture courses.
