Describes the structural components of steel building and how they interact with one another, including whole buildings and parts of buildings. Updated material retains the scope and methods of presentation of the first two volumes. Covers both internal and external loads acceptable to 1983 standards. Describes the procedure for design of the load carrying components according to the latest specification of the AISC. Includes numerous examples, assigned student work problems, and two programs in the appendixes which can be transferred to punched cards for ready use.
Bridges the gap between academic work and professional practice, carrying analysis and design beyond that applied to individual members and components and into total structural frames. Contains software for assessing forces on plane frames and plane frame trusses. Illustrated throughout and includes numerous tables from industry references. Appendices feature supplementary diagrams, matrix algebra and steel joist load tables.
