Structural Steel Design Book Review:

the undergraduate course in structural steel design using the Load and Resistance Factor Design Method (LRFD). The text also enables practicing engineers who have been trained to use the Allowable Stress Design procedure (ASD) to change easily to this more economical and realistic method for proportioning steel structures. The book comes with problem-solving software tied to chapter exercises which allows student to specify parameters for particular problems and have the computer assist them. On-screen information about how to use the software and the significance of various problem parameters is featured. The second edition reflects the revised steel specifications (LRFD) of the American Institute of Steel Construction.

Steel Structures, 4th Edition Book Review:

At the end of year 2005, new AISC Specification was released that contained formulas for both Allowable Stress Design and Load and Resistance Factor Design in non-dimensional format to be used for both the FPS and SI units. In year 2010, this specification for steel structures design and the seismic provisions were updated. This specification was further revised in 2016. This book is prepared in the light of the new Specifications. AASHTO LRFD Specifications are used to present the concepts of bridge loading and the design procedure. As in the first edition, in place of explaining the various aspects of design such as checking various strength capacities, stability requirements and serviceability limits in separate chapters, complete design including all the major steps of design are presented in individual units for various types of members. It is expected that this procedure gives true picture of design process to the beginners and the practicing engineers. This book is more useful if it is used along with another publication “LRFD Steel Design Aids”, termed as Design Aids in this book. The flow charts given in different sections of this book may easily be computerized to get custom-made computer programs for personal use. International system of units (SI) is used throughout the book. Suggestions for further improvement of the presentation will be highly appreciated and will be incorporated in the future editions.

LRFD Steel Design Aids, 4th Edition Book Review:

After the publication of the third edition of this book, new AISC Specification was released in 2010 that contains combined provisions for ASD and ARFD methods and formulas in non-dimensional format to be used both for the FPS and the SI units. This fourth edition is prepared after revising the original book in the light of the new Specification of AISC 2016. The book contains tables required for the 345 Grade Steel and BS sections. The author is highly thankful to all the engineers and students who have participated in the improvement of this book through their questions and queries. As before, the detailed design procedure of the steel structures is explained in a separate book titled “Steel Structures” which frequently refers to this book for the properties tables and the design aids. Suggestions for further improvement of the presentation will be highly appreciated and will be incorporated in the future editions.

Design of Steel Structures Book Review:

This book is intended for classroom teaching in architectural and civil engineering at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Although it has been developed from lecture notes given in structural steel design, it can be useful to practicing engineers. Many of the examples presented in this book are drawn from the field of design of structures. Design of Steel Structures can be used for one or two semesters of three hours each on the undergraduate level. For a two-semester curriculum, Chapters 1 through 8 can be used during the first semester. Heavy emphasis should be placed on Chapters 1 through 5, giving the student a brief exposure to the consideration of wind and earthquakes in the design of buildings. With the new federal requirements vis a vis wind and earthquake hazards, it is beneficial to the student to have some under standing of the underlying concepts in this field. In addition to the class lectures, the instructor should require the student to submit a term project that includes the complete structural design of a multi-story building using standard design procedures as specified by AISC Specifications. Thus, the use of the AISC Steel Construction Manual is a must in teaching this course. In the second semester, Chapters 9 through 13 should be covered. At the undergraduate level, Chapters 11 through 13 should be used on a limited basis, leaving the student more time to concentrate on composite construction and built-up girders.

Structural Steel Design, Third Edition is a simple, practical, and concise guide to structural steel design – using the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and the Allowable Strength Design (ASD) methods -- that equips the reader with the necessary skills for designing real-world structures. Civil, structural, and architectural engineering students intending to pursue careers in structural design and consulting engineering, and practicing structural engineers will find the text useful because of the holistic, project-based learning approach that bridges the gap between engineering education and professional practice. The design of each building component is presented in a way such that the reader can see how each element fits into the entire building design and construction process. Structural details and practical example exercises that realistically mirror what obtains in professional design practice are presented. Features: - Includes updated content/example exercises that conform to the current codes (ASCE 7, ANSI/AISC 360-16, and IBC) - Adds coverage to ASD and examples with ASD to parallel those that are done LRFD - Follows a holistic approach to structural steel design that considers the design of individual steel framing members in the context of a complete structure.

Steel Structures Book Review:

Appropriate for civil engineering courses in structural steel design, the fourth edition of this classic text provides background for designing steel structural elements using the 1993 AISC Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and the 1989 AISC Allowable Stress Design (ASD) Specifications. As in previous successful editions, a logical sequence of topics is featured, making complex material easy to understand. Emphasis throughout is placed on the explanation of the LRFD approach involving "limit states" and factored loads. To provide secondary coverage for the major topics--such as tension members, axially loaded columns, beams, beam-columns, and composite construction--the ASD formulations are developed from the strength-related concepts of LRFD. Throughout the book, all concepts are illustrated by numerical examples using LRFD; for the most important concepts, examples using ASD are also included. Many new end-of-chapter problems and references round out the text's presentation.
