Synopses & Reviews
This comprehensive guide clearly and concisely presents the fundamental theory associated with the design of steel structures.
Steel Structures Design: ASD/LRFD introduces the theoretical and fundamental basics of steel design and covers the detailed design of members and their connections. The book provides clear interpretations of: the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Steel Design Manual, 2010 Edition; the ASCE Minimum Design Loads for Building and Other Structures, 2005 Edition; the Seismic Design Manual, 2006 Edition; and the International Code Council (ICC) International Building Code (IBC), 2009 Edition. The code requirements are illustrated with design examples and solutions.
