Structural Steel Designer's Handbook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fully updated for the latest building and design codes, standards, and specifications, this invaluable working tool and one-of-a-kind reference offers complete coverage of the design of steel structures

Now in its Fifth Edition, Structural Steel Designers Handbook continues to provide designers of steel structures with a convenient, single source of information to facilitate the practical design of steel structures. The work begins with a concise yet comprehensive discourse on the properties of structural steel and the fundamentals of fabrications and erection. It continues with the presentation of modern structural design methods applicable to buildings and other structures, such as roof systems and bridges of various types. The book covers the design of membersbeams, columns, and tension componentsand of bolted and welded connections. Reference is made to the governing design codes throughout.

New to this Edition

  • Chapter 1 updated to reflect changes in the steel specificationsAmerican Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) through 2009
  • Chapter 4 updated to cover the latest loading codes for buildingsAmerican Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 7-09 and the 2009 International Building Code (IBC)
  • Chapters 5 and 6 updated to cover the latest design specifications for buildingsAmerican Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) 360-2010
  • Chapter 8 revised to include changes in seismic design requirements for buildings per ASCE 7-09 and the 2009 IBC
  • Chapter 9 revised to reflect the latest in cold-formed steel design, per American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) S100-2007 standards
  • Chapters 10 and 12 through 15 revised to include changes in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' (AASHTO's) specifications through 2009

Comprehensive coverage:

Properties of Structural Steels and Effects of Steelmaking and Fabrication; Fabrication and Erection; Connections; Building Codes, Loads, and Fire Protection; Criteria for Building Design; Design of Building Members; Floor and Roof Systems; Lateral-Force Design; Cold-Formed Steel Design; Highway Bridge Design Criteria; Railroad Bridge Design Criteria; Beam and Girder Bridges; Truss Bridges; Arch Bridges; Cable-Suspended Bridges

Book News Annotation:

For engineers, designers, and architects, this comprehensive volume provides detailed information on technical specifications for designing buildings, industrial structures, and bridges, using steel members. The handbooks covers topics such as properties of structural steel and manufacturing processes; fabrication and erection; connections, loads, building codes and fire protection; design of building members; floor and roof systems; lateral force designs; highway bridge design criteria; rail bridge design; and beam and girder, truss, cable and arch bridges. Notated technical drawings are included throughout and the material is formatted and indexed for easy reference. The work is authored by a team of contributors, all of whom are experienced practicing engineers with major building and design firms. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A Complete and Current Guide to Structural Steel Design

Fully updated with the most recent design codes, standards, and specifications, Structural Steel Designer's Handbook, Fifth Edition, provides a convenient, single source of the latest information essential to the practical design of steel structures.

This comprehensive volume begins by covering the properties of structural steel and the fundamentals of fabrication and erection.

Featuring contributions from renowned engineering experts, this is an invaluable working tool for structural steel designers.

Based on the latest design standards, codes, and specifications:

  • ANSI/AISC 360-10--unified LRFD and ASD specification
  • ANSI/AISI S100--unified specification for cold-formed members
  • SEI/ASCE 7-10 wind, seismic, and live loads, consolidated into the International Code Council (ICC) International Building Code (IBC)
  • AASHTO highway bridge design standards
  • ASTM material standards
  • AREMA railroad bridge design specifications

Coverage Includes:

  • Properties of structural steels and effects of steel-making and fabrication
  • Fabrication and erection
  • Connections
  • Building codes, loads, and fire protection
  • Criteria for building design
  • Design of building members
  • Floor and roof systems
  • Lateral-force design
