Structural Steel Designer's Handbookby Roger L. Brockenbrough
Synopses & Reviews
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.
