Synopses & Reviews
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. Not only is Steel Design a revision of LRFD Steel Design, it also encompasses the 2005 unification of LRFD and ASD as is covered in the Steel Construction Manual. The book is designed so that instructors can easily teach either LRFD or ASD, or both, time-permitting, as the differences in the two approaches are mostly conceptual. The application of fundamental principles is encouraged for design procedures as well as for practical design, but so is a theoretical approach, enhancing the students development. While the book is intended for junior-and senior-level engineering students, some of the later chapters can be used in graduate courses. Due to the changes that were made to many provisions of the Steel Construction Manual, practicing engineers will find this text useful in reviewing current practices and it will be an essential reference tool.
â€œThis book is excellently written. It is at precisely the correct level of detail for undergraduate students. The presentation style is just right: precise and to the point.â€?
â€œMy overall assessment is very positive. I am glad that this excellent textbook is being updated to incorporate the provisions of the latest AISC Code Provisions.â€?
â€œI think that the overall strength of this text is its direct approach to many of the most common situations in steel design.â€?
This up-to-date text provides a practical, down-to-earth presentation of structural steel design that closely reflects ongoing changes in the AISC LRFD Specifications and the Manual of Steel Construction.
This up-to-date book includes the latest specification from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). The emphasis is on the design of building components in accordance with the provisions of the AISC Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) Specification and the LRFD Manual of Steel Construction. Without requiring students to have a knowledge of stability theory or statically indeterminate structures, the book maintains a balance of background material with applications.
