Standard Practice in Sheet Metal Work CD-ROM
This handsome publication contains a collection of 1929 system design data and graphic illustrations, including pattern layouts representing the best known practices in the industry that have been proven over a period of years. With today's emphasis on restoration, refurbishing, rebuilding and retrofitting, architects will find this publication more than of just historical interest. Architectural sections include elaborate cornices, skylights, domes, spires, spun balusters, gargoyles, marquise, storefronts, metal buildings and metal roofs. A majority of drawings are to scale. Another section is on heating and ventilating systems including gravity furnaces. Blowpipe sections cover design, layout, construction and equipment. This is a reprint of a 1929 manual that deals with architecture at the turn of the century. This can be used for restoration work, but does not apply to modern architecture.
