Description

This book stresses both the design of steel structures (as do the competing texts) and the behaviour of steel under specific conditions. The most recent editions of the "American Institute of Steel Construction's Load and Resistance Factor Design Specifications", (3e, 1999) and the "LRFD Manual", (3e, 2001) are used and extensively referenced in this text, and these documents are based on the behaviour of steel. Therefore covering the interaction of design and behaviour in one textbook is a unique approach. Designers must understand structural behaviour as an integral part of the design process, and chapters 1 to 5 thoroughly cover this material. As the author notes, "The heart and soul of design are the ability to conceive a structure that will behave as desired, and intuition regarding different framing options." The other chapters cover the elements that makeup a steel building structure: members and connections. In each chapter, discussion of theory and behaviour of the member under various combinations of loads it must resist is followed by a discussion of design applications.show more
