A concise guide to the structural design of low-rise buildings in cold-formed steel, reinforced masonry, and structural timber
This practical reference discusses the types of low-rise building structural systems, outlines the design process, and explains how to determine structural loadings and load paths pertinent to low-rise buildings. Characteristics and properties of materials used in the construction of cold-formed steel, reinforced masonry, and structural timber buildings are described along with design requirements. The book also provides an overview of noncomposite and composite open-web joist floor systems. Design code requirements referenced by the 2009 International Building Code are used throughout. This is an ideal resource for structural engineering students, professionals, and those preparing for licensing examinations.

A concise, practical guide to structural design using steel, masonry, and timber
Structural Design of Low-Rise Building in Cold-Formed Steel Reinforced Masonry, and Structural Timber authoritatively covers the primary aspects of structural design of low-rise buildings in the most common materials--cold-formed steel, reinforced masonry, and structural timber. Cold-formed steel was recently added to the NCEES (National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying) structural exams, and this book also serves as a complete Professional Engineer/Structural Engineer exam study guide.
