A completely revised and updated in-depth guide to the requirements central to earthquake-resistant design of steel structures
Ductile Design ofSteel Structures, Second Edition promotes and presents the fundamental principles behind the design of ductile steel structures. It has been updated to reflect the design provisions for two new structural systemsbuckling restrained braced frames and steel plate shear wallsintroduced in the Canadian Standard for the Design of Steel Structures. The book also reflects the changes to the AISC and CSA design provisions. Although steel remains the most ductile of the modern structural engineering materials, research demonstrates that special care is necessary to ensure ductile structural behavior, even when structural stability is not a concern. This book fully addresses the requirements for earthquake-resistant design of steel structures.
New to the Second Edition:
- The addition of renowned structural engineer Rafael Sabelli to the author team
- Four new chaptersbuckling restrained braced frames; steel plate shear walls; broader hystertic energy dissipating systems; blast-resistant and progressive-collapse-resistant design
- Expanded and completely revised chapters on concentrically braced frames and eccentrically braced frames
- Updates to reflect the AISC (American Institute for Steel Construction) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) design requirements
- Self-study problems at the end of each chapter
Introduction; Structural Steel; Plastic Behavior at the Cross-Section Level; Concepts of Plastic Analysis; Systematic Methods of Plastic Analysis Applications of Plastic Analysis; Design of Ductile Concentrically Braced Frames; Design of Ductile Eccentrically Braced Frames; Design of Ductile Moment-Resisting Frames; Design of Ductile Buckling; Restrained Braced Frames; Design of Ductile Steel Plate Shear Walls; Other Ductile Steel Energy Dissipating Systems; Limit State Philosophy in Seismic Design Provisions; Blast-Resistant (Collapse-Resistant) Design of Ductile Steel Structures; Stability and Rotation Capacity of Steel Beams; Partial Solutions to Self-Study Problems
Comprehensive coverage of the background and design requirements for plastic and seismic design of steel structures
Thoroughly revised throughout, Ductile Design of Steel Structures, Second Edition, reflects the latest plastic and seismic design provisions and standards from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the Canadian Standard Association (CSA). The book covers steel material, cross-section, component, and system response for applications in plastic and seismic design, and provides practical guidance on how to incorporate these principles into structural design.
Three new chapters address buckling-restrained braced frame design, steel plate shear wall design, and hysteretic energy dissipating systems and design strategies. Eight other chapters have been extensively revised and expanded, including a chapter presenting the basic seismic design philosophy to determine seismic loads. Self-study problems at the end of each chapter help reinforce the concepts presented. Written by experts in earthquake-resistant design who are active in the development of seismic guidelines, this is an invaluable resource for students and professionals involved in earthquake engineering or other areas related to the analysis and design of steel structures.
COVERAGE INCLUDES: Structural steel properties Plastic behavior at the cross-section level Concepts, methods, and applications of plastic analysis Building code seismic design philosophy Design of moment-resisting frames Design of concentrically braced frames Design of eccentrically braced frames Design of steel energy dissipating systems Stability and rotation capacity of steel beams
