Andrew WattsModern Construction Handbook
New edition of the famous handbook
The Modern Construction Handbook has become a classic of advanced construction literature, not least because of its regular revisions and its clear structure with chapters on “Materials”, “Wall”, “Roof”, “Structure”, “Environment” and “Applications”.
Proven details on components, examples focusing on sustainability and energy consumption, and an update on Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) introduced in the latest edition set new standards for this textbook, which serves as a basic textbook in many architectural courses.
As an introductory textbook on building design, it provides a starting point for the more advanced books Modern Construction Envelopes, Modern Construction Case Studies, Modern Environmental Design and Modern Structural Design by Andrew Watts.
