Introduction Hie present volume is a revision of A rchitecL nral Terra Cotta Standard Construction, originally publislied in 1914. Like the previous issue, tiiis edition does not presume to suggest architectural design. It shows illustrative architectural forms of assumed proportions, and their proper constructional features. It shows the correct use ofT erra Colta. For a number of examjiles several good solutions of the structiu al problems are possible. Variations in size of similar sections sometimes necessitate radical changes in both jointing and construction. The changes made in this revision are the result of a more extended experience in manufacturing and in modern building methods, and are based on a careful study of the behavior and weathering properties of exterior building materials. The following are the most imiiortant of the structural principles upon which this revision has been developed: Shelf In concrete or steel frame buildings, the veneer or facing material should be fully and continuously Supports supported, at each floor level on shelf supports, of adequate strength and stiffness, rigidly connected to the structui-al frame. Steel shelf angles or supports, in all cases, should be located in mortar joints. The strength of the Terra Cotta should nut be unnecessarily reduced by cutting the webs to receive the steel. ExpaT lsion Proper provision should be made for expansion joints, at shelf supports, over column caps, etc., to Joints prevent the development of disruptive stresses caused by deflection, wind pressure, temperature changes, settlement and like forces. Terra Colta 1volume clianges incident to the setting and hardening of concrete, and the variations in volume on Concrete concrete due to humidity and temperature conditions, require provisions to allow free movement Frames supporting frame and make it undesirable to completely fil(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
