Covering new materials and techniques developed since the book was first published, the eference features more than 100 drawings illustrating the tolerance concepts. There are new sections on measuring compliance with tolerance standards; right-of-way construction; autoclaved aerated concrete; tilt-up concrete panels; interior stone wall cladding; structural insulated panels; decorative architectural glass; laminated architectural flat glass and bent glass.
