Protect against the life-threatening dangers of building collapse!
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.
