STRUCTURAL STEELWORK DESIGN to BS 5950 

Structural steelwork design is usually taught tn degree and diploma courses
after an initial grounding in the theory of and strength of matenals
The design teaching usually covers both simplestructural elements and
complete buildings. More complex elements and buildings are often covered
in postgraduate courses, but the ideas and concepts outlined in this text still
provide the basis for more complicated structures. This book has been
prepared pnmarily for the student


This book falls naturally into two pans. Part I seis out in detail the design
of elements (beams, columns, etc.) frequently found in a structural steel
framework. Part II shows how these elements are combined to form a
building frame, and should prove especially useful to the engineer in the
context of practtcal destgn. Past U also develops other considerations suck' as
the overall stability of building structures. Those with some experience of
element design may prefer to start with Part II, using the cross-references to
re-examine element design as necessary. A final chapter considers detailing
practice, and the effects of a number of practical considerations such as
fabncatioo and fire protection.
