Aluminium in Building (Routledge Revivals)

2018 | ISBN: 1138608327 | English | 194 Pages | PDF | 197 MB

First published in 1992. Aluminium is a relatively new material, first used on a commercial basis just over 100 years ago. Today it has taken its place alongside other traditional materials as an established building element. In this variable reference source, John Lane discusses the history and development of aluminium usage in the building industry. Its characteristics of strength, lightness and durability, coupled with easy formability, make it and ideal medium for this market.

The first section of this book is a general discussion of the metal, covering such areas as its properties, alloys, fabrication, joining and finishing. The second part details the aspects of aluminium which are of particular importance in construction, while the final section highlights some of its major uses in architecture and building.

The text is amply illustrated with diagrams and photographs, and the appendices provide the reader with comprehensive details of relevant standards and contact addresses.
