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 bigger picture of an entire building design and the construction process. Structural details and practical example problems that realistically mirror what one obtains in professional design practice are presented.
Features: Updated content/example problems for the current codes (ASCE 7, AISC 15th edition, 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.
