Structural Steel Design Book Review:

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.

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.

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.

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.

Structural Steel Design to Eurocode 3 and AISC Specifications deals with the theory and practical applications of structural steel design in Europe and the USA. The book covers appropriate theoretical and background information, followed by a more design‐oriented coverage focusing on European and United States specifications and practices, allowing the reader to directly compare the approaches and results of both codes. Chapters follow a general plan, covering: • A general section covering the relevant topics for the chapter, based on classical theory and recent research developments• A detailed section covering design and detailing to Eurocode 3 specification • A detailed section covering design and detailing to AISC specificationsFully worked examples are using both codes are presented.With construction companies working in increasingly international environments, engineers are more and more likely to encounter both codes. Written for design engineers and students of civil and structural engineering, this book will help both groups to become conversant with both code systems.

Steel Design Book Review:

STEEL DESIGN covers the fundamentals of structural steel design with an emphasis on the design of members and their connections, rather than the integrated design of buildings. The book is designed so that instructors can easily teach LRFD, ASD, or both, time-permitting. The application of fundamental principles is encouraged for design procedures as well as for practical design, but a theoretical approach is also provided to enhance student development. While the book is intended for junior-and senior-level engineering students, some of the later chapters can be used in graduate courses and practicing engineers will find this text to be an essential reference tool for reviewing current practices.
