Architectural Engineering: Codes & standards

A place to start research in architectural engineering, ranging from finding articles, trade journals, handbooks, and standards, to keeping track of your citations

Standards for Architectural and Civil Engineering

Standards establish specifications, procedures, and designs to ensure the reliability and safety of products, materials and structures.


Codes often define local requirements and standards for building, and might apply to the how the building is constructed, but also what kinds of buildings and uses of land are permitted. They vary by jurisdiction.
