Steel construction manual by Helmut C Schulitz( Book )

41 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second volume in this series documents all aspects of steel as a construction material, first looking at the historical development of building with steel. This is followed by several chapters which examine to a high degree of technical detail the physical properties of the material, the principles of construction utilizing steel and the wide range of steel elements and their applications. The final chapter presents 54 examples which illustrate the many applications of steel in constructionfrom simple halls to complex multistorey buildings. These examples were selected because of their innovative use of steel, demonstrating its great potential for minimising the materials and montage necessary. For ease of comparison all the plans have been drawn to the same scale." "The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography and a listing of the relevant norms and standards, making this work an essential reference for all architects and engineers."--Jacket

Show me the future : engineering and design by Werner Sobek by Conway Lloyd Morgan( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Werner Sobek is an engineer. An intelligent and gifted engineer, a specialist in lightweight structures, in using fabric where others would pour concrete, in letting glass float where others would frame it in steel. He is an architect as well. And he has worked with some of the most important architects around - Helmut Jahn. Will Alsop, Frei Otto. Werner Sobek's work unites his skill as an exceptional engineer with his talent as an architect. His vision of the built environment is about using minimal resources, being self-sufficient, enjoying daylight to the maximum, respecting the environment. Ideas that seem formal and serious, but that translate into structures of grace and elegance, conceived at a human scale

Post tower : Helmut Jahn, Werner Sobek, Matthias Schuler by Werner Blaser( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aerodynamically designed highrise building which houses the offices of the Deutsche Post is a remarkable example of the collaboration between Helmut Jahn, Werner Sobek and Matthias Schuler. This innovative design has in the meantime been honoured by the Urban Land Institute. The plan consists of two half oval towers, which are shifted slightly towards each other, enclosing a central winter garden which optimizes energy consumption. The offices can be naturally ventilated for a large part of the year with the exhaust air ventilating the winter garden. The integrated, computer-controlled heating and cooling system balances the inside and outside temperatures perfectly, and the use of innovative double skin façades make this building an example of state-of-the-art façade technology. This book portrays this structure in stunning duotone photographs, short texts and plans
