Extensively updated, revised, and expanded, this 3rd edition text shows you how to recognize the signs of building collapse before it happens--so you can get out while there's still time. You'll be informed about critical topics such as: The toxic combustion products of vermin- and moisture-resistant treated wood The outcome of multi-million-dollar lawsuits involving some fire-retardant treated plywood The total collapse hazard to post-tensioned concrete buildings under construction The dynamics of the "stack effect"... and more! Photographs and illustrations help you visualize key concepts, so you can spot dangers on the job.
