Fully revised and updated, this eighth edition is an invaluable tool for all practicing structural, civil, and mechanical engineers as well as engineering students. Responding to changes in design and processing standards--including fabrication, welding, and coatings--this resource introduces the main concepts of designing steel structures; describes the limit states method of design; demonstrates the methods of calculating the design capacities of structural elements and connections; and illustrates the calculations by means of worked examples. Design aids and extensive references to external sources are also included.

A Complete and Current Guide to Structural Steel Design Fully updated with the most recent design codes, standards, and specifications, Structural Steel Designer's Handbook, Fifth Edition, provides a convenient, single source of the latest information essential to the practical design of steel structures. This comprehensive volume begins by covering the properties of structural steel and the fundamentals of fabrication and erection. Modern structural design methods applicable to buildings and other structures, such as roof systems and various types of bridges, are presented. Details on the design of members--beams, columns, and tension components--and of bolted and welded connections are also covered. Featuring contributions from renowned engineering experts, this is an invaluable working tool for structural steel designers. Based on the latest design standards, codes, and specifications: ANSI/AISC 360-10--unified LRFD and ASD specification ANSI/AISI S100--unified specification for cold-formed members SEI/ASCE 7-10 wind, seismic, and live loads, consolidated into the International Code Council (ICC) International Building Code (IBC) AASHTO highway bridge design standards ASTM material standards AREMA railroad bridge design specifications Coverage Includes: Properties of structural steels and effects of steel-making and fabrication Fabrication and erection Connections Building codes, loads, and fire protection Criteria for building design Design of building members Floor and roof systems Lateral-force design Cold-formed steel design Highway bridge design criteria Railroad bridge design criteria Beam and girder bridges Truss bridges Arch bridges Cable-suspended bridges

The definitive text in the field, thoroughly updated and expanded Hailed by professionals around the world as the definitive text on the subject, Cold-Formed Steel Design is an indispensable resource for all who design for and work with cold-formed steel. No other book provides such exhaustive coverage of both the theory and practice of cold-formed steel construction. Updated and expanded to reflect all the important developments that have occurred in the field over the past decade, this Fourth Edition of the classic text provides you with more of the detailed, up-to-the-minute technical information and expert guidance you need to make optimum use of this incredibly versatile material for building construction. Wei-Wen Yu and Roger LaBoube, respected authorities in the field, draw upon decades of experience in cold-formed steel design, research, teaching, and development of design specifications to provide guidance on all practical aspects of cold-formed steel design for manufacturing, civil engineering, and building applications. Throughout the book, they describe the structural behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections from both the theoretical and experimental perspectives, and discuss the rationale behind the AISI and North American design provisions. Cold-Formed Steel Design, Fourth Edition features: Thoroughly up-to-date 2007 North American (AISI S100) design specifications Both ASD and LRFD methods for USA and Mexico LSD (Limit States Design) method for Canada A new chapter on the Direct Strength Method Updates and revisions of all 14 existing chapters In-depth design examples and explanation of design provisions Cold-Formed Steel Design, Fourth Edition is a necessary tool-of-the-trade for structural engineers, manufacturers, construction managers, and architects. It is also an excellent advanced text for college students and researchers in structural engineering, architectural engineering, construction engineering, and related disciplines.

As known, each bridge presents a unique set of design, construction, and maintenance challenges. The designer must determine the appropriate methods and level of refinement necessary to design and analyze each bridge on a case-by-case basis. The Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance encompasses the state of the art in bridge design, construction, maintenance, and safety assessment. Written by an international group of experts, this book provides innovative design approaches used in various parts of the world and explores concepts in design, construction, and maintenance that will reduce project costs and increase structural safety and durability. Furthermore, research and innovative solutions are described throughout chapters. The Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance brings together the specific knowledge of a bevy of experts and academics in bridge engineering in the areas of design, assessment, research, and construction. The handbook begins with an analysis of the history and development of bridge aesthetics and design; various types of loads including seismic and wind loads are then described, together with fatigue and fracture. Bridge design based on material such as reinforced concrete, prestressed reinforced concrete, steel and composite, timber, masonry bridges is analyzed and detailed according to international codes and standards. Then bridge design based on geometry, such as arch bridges, girders, cable stayed and suspension bridges, is illustrated. This is followed by a discussion of a number of special topics, including integral, movable, highway and railway bridges, together with seismic component devices, cables, orthotropic decks, foundations, and case studies. Finally, bridge construction equipment, bridge assessment retrofit and management, bridge monitoring, fiber-reinforced polymers to reinforce bridges, bridge collapse issues are covered. Loads including seismic and wind loads, fatigue and fracture, local effects Structural analysis including numerical methods (FEM), dynamics, risk and reliability, innovative structural typologies Bridge design based on material type: RC and PRC, steel and composite, timber and masonry bridges Bridge design based on geometry: arch bridges, girders, cable stayed and suspension bridges Special topics: integral, movable, highway, railway bridges, seismic component devices, cables, orthotropic decks, foundations Construction including construction case studies, construction equipment, bridge assessment, bridge management, retrofit and strengthening, monitoring procedures

This is all the more relevant in case of design of reinforced concrete members. Hence this handbook has been compiled to assist design engineers involved in reinforced concrete designs to give a simpler, faster and safer approach to designing. The design tables have been prepared in complete conformity with various stipulation in Indian Standards, IS 456:1978 (code of practice for Plain and Reinforced Concrete). They cover both Tor 40 and Tor 50 grades of steel and concrete grades M15, M20 and M25 which re normally used in reinforced concrete constructions. They are based on Limit State Method as enunciated in the Indian Standards mentioned above. While preparing the tables, the practical aspects that influence the designs have been taken into consideration. The handbook has been compiled to be self-sufficient so that a designer can carry out designs with the aid of this book alone
