The behaviour and applications of basic forms of structural systems are reviewed, including beam and column systems, arches and cable systems, trusses, braced systems and rigid frames. Limit States design principles in accordance with the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) are introduced as a means of dealing with uncertainty in design. The estimation of building loads is covered, including dead and live loads, snow and rain loads, and loads due to wind. An introduction is also given to the characteristics of common structural materials, including steel, reinforced concrete and wood.
