Whilst this quantity was once first released, plastic conception used to be the main sleek approach to structural research, and it made attainable the direct layout of metal frames in a fashion no longer to be had with merely elastic tools. it's now famous that this conception is usually basic to structural layout in fabrics corresponding to bolstered concrete and aluminium. this can be the 1st quantity of a two-volume paintings by means of Professors Baker and Heyman that expounds and illustrates the tools of plastic layout. quantity 1 offers the weather of the speculation and covers the wishes of so much undergraduates and architects. a unique characteristic of this paintings is the big variety of workouts (140 in all) with solutions. quantity 2 offers with complex subject matters of theoretical research and sensible layout. The examples and the tools provided herein are tremendous useful to the engineer. the standard of the writing makes Professors Baker and Heyman's e-book a excitement to learn. Lord Baker (Sir John Fleetwood Baker, 1901-1985) was once Professor of Mechanical Sciences and Head of the dep. of Engineering on the collage of Cambridge from 1943 to 1968. He used to be a Fellow of the Royal Society. Baker's pioneering examine ended in the advance of the plastic thought of layout, initially used for metal frames yet now famous as being legitimate for lots of structural fabrics, resembling aluminium and strengthened concrete. also, Baker used to be liable for many curriculum concepts on the college and used to be the writer of The metal Skeleton, a two-volume paintings. Jacques Heyman is the previous Head of the dep. of Engineering on the collage of Cambridge and the writer of ten books, together with The Stone Skeleton, parts of the speculation of buildings, Structural research: A ancient technique, parts of rigidity research, and the two-volume set Plastic layout of Frames: quantity 1. basics with Lord Baker and quantity 2. purposes. he's a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, the establishment of Civil Engineers, and the Royal Academy of Engineering. He acted as a consulting engineer for a couple of English cathedrals and as a member of the Architectural Advisory Panel for Westminster Abbey and of the Cathedrals textile fee for England, and he has served on many British criteria committees. The Stone Skeleton received the alternative awesome educational Books Award in 1996.
