Rapidly changing infrastructure along with new products and manufacturing processes are making expertise in architectural, civil, pipe, and structural design increasingly essential for modern drafting professionals. Building on decades of success with his acclaimed STRUCTURAL DRAFTING text, author David Goetsch created STRUCTURAL, CIVIL, AND PIPE DRAFTING to help you develop the specific knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a rapidly evolving, high-demand field. The text opens with an overview of structural drafting—from department organization to product fabrication and shipping—before exploring critical topics such as structural steel, pre-cast concrete, poured-in-place concrete, structural wood drafting, pre-fab metal buildings, civil engineering drafting, and process piping. Now thoroughly updated, the Second Edition features new and revised material reflecting the latest trends, technology, and applications, as well as more photographs and illustrations and improved CAD application exercises to enhance learning.
