Summary

Protect against the life-threatening dangers of building collapse!

Brannigan's book can save your life! 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.
