This book focuses on the changes made in building science and practice by the advent of computers. It explains many more tools now available in the contemporary engineering environment. The book discusses the more commonly used topics of structural failure, cable-nets and fabric structures, and topics of non-linear analysis. Problems with solutions are provided.
