The fully revised fourth edition of this successful textbook fills a void which will arise when British designers start using the European steel code EC3 instead of the current steel code BS5950. The principal feature of the forth edition is the discussion of the behaviour of steel structures and the criteria used in design according to the British version of EC3. Thus it serves to bridge the gap which too often occurs when attention is concentrated on methods of analysis and the sizing of structural components. Because emphasis is placed on the development of an understanding of behaviour, many analytical details are either omitted in favour of more descriptive explanations, or are relegated to appendices. The many worked examples both illustrate the behaviour of steel structures and exemplify details of the design process. The Behaviour and Design of Steel Structures to EC3 is a key text for senior undergraduate and graduate students, and an essential reference tool for practising structural engineers in the UK and other countries.

The behaviour of steel structures and the criteria used in their design are set out in detail in this book. The book bridges the gap between the methods of analysis and the sizing of structural components. The basis of the limit state design criteria of the latest Australian code for structural steel are explained, and the reader is pointed to the relevant provisions of the code.

This textbook is a comprehensive introduction to structural steelwork design based on the limit states approach to BS 5950, for use by undergraduates in civil and structural engineering. It will also serve as a reference for practising engineers unfamiliar with new parts of BS 5950. The text introduces basic properties of steel, types of steel structure and steelwork design in order to develop an understanding of the various aspects of the behaviour and design of structural steelwork. This edition has been thoroughly revised in accordance with the 2000 amendment to Part 1 of BS 5950 - all references have been updated and a new section on partial encasement for fire resistance has been added. Each chapter features worked examples, practice problems and references.

This book examines the plastic design and behaviour of main frames--both low-rise industrial and agricultural, and multistorey. Representative topics, such as member and frame stability and restraints and connections, are explained in clear and detailed presentations, and will interest practitioners and students alike. Explanations are buttressed by many diagrams and numerous worked examples. Published on behalf of the Steel Construction Institute, the book was written by Professor J.M. Davies of the University of Manchester, and Brian Brown, chartered structural engineer.

BS5950, the design code for structural steel, has been substantially revised. This timely book introduces design engineers to the use of BS5950 and gives the necessary information for them to be able to carry out satisfactory design for steel structures covered in the standard. This includes some guidance on loading and where further information may be obtained. The book discusses various clauses in BS5950 in the light of the basic theory and gives the necessary background information to ensure a good understanding of the document. Worked examples are supplied to enable the reader to follow the code and ensure that all critical design checks are properly understood. Great care has been taken in the technical exposition and practical illustrations of the material presented. Theory if immediately followed by worked examples for the sake of better and clearer understanding.

This third edition of a popular textbook is a concise single-volume introduction to the design of structural elements in concrete, steel, timber, masonry, and composites. It provides design principles and guidance in line with both British Standards and Eurocodes, current as of late 2007. Topics discussed include the philosophy of design, basic structural concepts, and material properties. After an introduction and overview of structural design, the book is conveniently divided into sections based on British Standards and Eurocodes.

These two volumes of proceedings contain nine invited keynote papers and 130 contributed papers presented at the Third International Conference on Advances in Steel Structures (ICASS '02) held on 9-11 December 2002 in Hong Kong, China. The conference is a sequel to the First and the Second International Conferences on Advances in Steel Structures held in Hong Kong in December 1996 and 1999. The conference provides a forum for discussion and dissemination by researchers and designers of recent advances in the analysis, behaviour, design and construction of steel structures. Papers were contributed from over 18 countries around the world. They report current state-of-the art and point to future directions of structural steel research, covering a wide spectrum of topics including: beams and columns; connections; scaffolds and slender structures; cold-formed steel; composite construction; plates; shells; bridges; dynamics; impact mechanics; effects of welding; fatigue and fracture; fire performance; and analysis and design.

The third edition of this popular book now contains references to both Eurocodes and British Standards, as well as new and revised examples, and sections on sustainability, composite columns and local buckling. Initial chapters cover the essentials of structural engineering and structural steel design, whilst the remainder of the book is dedicated to a detailed examination of the analysis and design of selected types of structures, presenting complex designs in an understandable and user-friendly way. These structures include a range of single and multi-storey buildings, floor systems and wide-span buildings. Emphasis is placed on practical design with a view to helping undergraduate students and newly qualified engineers bridge the gap between academic study and work in the design office. Experienced engineers who need a refresher course on up-to-date methods of design and analysis will also find the book useful.
