The only A-Z guide to structural steel design Find a wealth of practical techniques for cost-effectively designing steel structures from buildings to bridges in Structural Steel Designer’s Handbook by Roger L. Brockenbrough and Frederick S. Merritt The Handbook’s integrated approach gives you immediately useful information about:
- steel as a material – how it’s fabricated and erected
- how to analyze a structure to determine internal forces and moments from dead, live, and seismic loads how to make detailed design calculations to withstand those forces
This new third edition introduces you to the latest developments in seismic design, including more ductile connections, and high performance steels…offers an expanded treatment of welding….helps you understand design requirements for hollow structural sections and for cold-formed steel members….and explores numerous design examples. You get examples for both Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Allowable Stress Design (ASD).
This edition of the handbook has been updated throughout to reflect continuing changes in design trends and improvements in design specifications. Criteria and examples are included for both allowable-stress design (ASD) and load-and-resistance-factor design (LRFD) methods, but an increased emphasis has been placed on LRFD to reflect its growing use in practice.
