The second edition of this book provides structural engineers with a concise introduction to the architectural, structural and technological aspects of cable roofs, and supplies sufficient information for engineers to carry out their own designs. The improved methods for generating wind and earthquake histories have been included as the trend in modern design codes seem increasingly to require that dynamic response of other forms of non-linear structures such as guyed masts is considered at the design stage.

C. N. Mindham ... 256 pages - Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell; 4th edition (August 18, 2006)

Full of detailed construction drawings, this book covers cut roofs, bolted truss roofs, trussed rafter roofs, trimmed openings and ventilation. A major section deals with loft to attic room conversions, giving guidance on planning procedures, as well as dealing with structural matters and specifying conversion work. The Fourth Edition features a new chapter covering the growing number of engineered timber components available in the house building industry. The use of I beams and roof cassettes is detailed for roof and room-in-the-roof construction. The text has been fully updated to current standards and features additional detailed construction drawings. The chapters on attic conversion and construction have been expanded and a new attic conversion decision flow chart added. The book will prove invaluable to architects, house builders, roof carpenters, building control officers, trussed rafter manufacturers and students of building technology. The Author C.N. Mindham BSc has had a wide experience in the construction industry. After three years with TRADA as Eastern Regional Officer, he spent 11 years developing a timber engineering business to become one of the country's largest producers of trussed rafters. He became Managing Director of a company designing and manufacturing trussed rafters, joinery and prefabricated timber buildings, a post he held for eight years. Subsequently he started his own consultancy for the timber industry which has led him to his current position as Managing Director for a joinery and engineering company.

The Roofs Handbook is a textbook for practitioners of architecture, as well as for structural and environmental engineers who wish to broaden their study. The six chapters examine roofs from the standpoint of the primary material used in their construction, from metal, glass, and concrete to timber, plastics and fabrics. Each set of three double page spreads explains a specific form of construction which is accompanied by drawn and annotated details. Throughout the book, built examples by high profile designers are used to illustrate specific principles. As it is the case in the Modern Construction Handbook the techniques described can be applied internationally.
