Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

STEEL DESIGN covers the fundamentals of structural steel design with an emphasis on the design of members and their connections, rather than the integrated design of buildings. The book is designed so that instructors can easily teach LRFD, ASD, or both, time-permitting. The application of fundamental principles is encouraged for design procedures as well as for practical design, but a theoretical approach is also provided to enhance student development. While the book is intended for junior-and senior-level engineering students, some of the later chapters can be used in graduate courses and practicing engineers will find this text to be an essential reference tool for reviewing current practices.

About the Author

William T. Segui is an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Memphis where he began in 1968. He specializes in structural analysis and design. Segui is a Registered Professional Engineer in Tennessee, a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and a member of the West Tennessee Structural Engineers Association Experience. He has authored books in LRFD Steel Design and Structural Steel as well as numerous journal articles.
