I took a foundation design course taught by Alexander Newman in 2008. At the time, his Metal Building Systems book was a bit out of date. He had a course workbook that contained newer information, but the material was still in draft and some of it handwritten. I just bought this new edition of his book, and find it to be superb. The examples he had in the 2008 workshop are now well documented and easy to follow.

You can also apply his design principles to other types of building structures.

Found this to be a very well written / easily understandable reference. Some of the calculations took some time to sort through because I hadn't seen the equations for a while, but the issue was my lack of familiarity with the subject matter, not the presentation of the information. The only thing that would have made it easier for me would have been if the sample problems would have been in MathCAD so that you could see the unit conversions as they happened vice backing into them using the text/numbers provided. As you see, I still rate it a 5-star reference and will keep it handy on my bookshelf of reference materials.

There is no fluff in this book. I really appreciate the author taking the time to write 80+ pages on concrete anchorage alone. You will find the nice hand calculations, where the variables and the ACI 318 sections are noted beore pluggung in the numbers to be an ideal feature. Another feature, the author explains how the pre-2002 codes are no longer applicable. Also covered nicely are detailing needed to assist with construction aspects of pedastals.

A must reference if you do foundation design of metal buildings. Looking forward to other books by this author.

Great reference book for anyone that is unfamiliar with the design of these structures (like myself). Very straightforward, but complete and detailed.
