He has given workshops at several Chinese and Indian universities on: The Building Support Structure in Architecture: a visual analysis and design of structures with computers using SAP2000. He is the author of five textbooks on building structures and architecture. His books have been translated into several languages.
In his books, Professor Schueller introduces approximate structural analysis and design methods, to develop an understanding of structure building systems and their behavior under various types of load action. I his last book the approximate solutions are checked with the professional software SAP2000®.
