Building Design

One advance in building design was developed around themid-20th century and was originally applied to the design of machinery and electronics with remarkable achievements in operational research, or adaptations of system design. Previously, the design of new buildings was primarily an imitation of the design of existing buildings. Technological innovations were often developed by coincidence or by intuition and were a rare event. In contrast, system design encourages innovation.

It is the precise procedure that guides creativity towards the best decisions. As a result, it can play an important role in addressing the challenges posed by the increasing complexity and cost of buildings. This section describes the basic principles of system design.

With special attention to the simplified procedure, emphasis is placed on the basic principles and practical application. Frequent references to other sources where additional authoritative information may be obtained, such as the architecture and engineering Society, manufacturers’ associations and the Internet are made. An extensive index is provided to help readers in finding topics within the book.

Many new contributors and sections have been added in this edition to provide readers with the latest developments and knowledge of the building industry.

These developments include the expansion of data technology and communication systems within building systems, the revision of wind and seismic loads, and the expansion of information on fire sprinkler systems.
