A thorough knowledge of the "hows" and "whys" of building assemblies is a prerequisite to effective architectural design. Architectural detailing - creating drawings that accurately describe particular assemblies within a design - is essential to controlling the total building process. This book provides students with a solid grounding in building assemblies, followed by step-by-step guidance on how to develop effective professional architectural details which are essential to becoming a skilled architectural detailer. More than 1,000 expertly-crafted design details (including over 400 new CAD-drawn 3-D images, details, and photographs) help illustrate the concepts presented while establishing a high level of detailing excellence to which students will aspire.

Normally, the weather service would be available to the aircrew before a flight. But there are limitations to this service due to ever changing conditions even during peacetime, not to mention wartime. This manual was used to instruct trainee members of an aircrew on how to interpret changing weather conditions so that they were prepared on how to respond to these variants and in the end avoid a future aircraft accident.
