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.

Steel-concrete composite bridges outlines the various forms that modern steel-concrete composite bridges take, from simple beam bridges through to arches and trusses and modern cable-stay forms. The author brings together a wide variety of steel-concrete composite bridge types, many of which have not been covered in any existing book or design guide. Outlined within are emerging technologies such as folded plate webs, double composite action and extra-dosed girders, along with design rules for composite action and examples of their use in a wide variety of practical applications. Steel-concrete composite bridges shows how to choose the bridge form and design element sizes to enable the production of accurate drawings and also highlights a wide and full range of examples of the design and construction of this bridge type.

For this second edition, the book has been updated to comply with the recently revised code of practice for hot-rolled sections. In addition, a new chapter on portal design has been included to cover this very important type of single-storey structure. Both elastic and plastic methods are given. This book will continue to provide an indispensable guide for students of structural and civil engineering and for engineers and designers in industry.
