Steel Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams

Steel Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams

My purpose in writing this book is twofold. First, to help practicing engineers who are
preparing for the civil structural Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam or
the structural engineering (SE) exam, both administered by the National Council of
Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). Second, to help engineering
students who are learning about structural steel. This book, then, is designed to be
useful as a guide for studying on your own or as a text for an introductory or
intermediate class in steel design.


The main purpose of this book, Steel Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams,
is to be a study reference for engineers and students who are preparing to take either
the civil structural PE exam or the structural SE exam, both of which are given by the
National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). These
exams—even the breadth section of the civil PE exam, which is more general in its
scope—often contain structural questions that go beyond the basics. If you want to be
prepared for all questions in steel design, this book will give you the thorough review
you need.
However, anyone who wants to learn more about the most current steel design methods
can benefit from this book. It can serve as a guide for those who are studying on their
own or as a text in a formal course.
After a quick review of some basics in the early chapters, each chapter in turn explores
in greater detail a different aspect of steel design. Among the topics covered are
• loads and load combinations
• analysis methods
• design of beams, columns, and plate girders
• design of members under combined stresses
• design of composite members
• bolted and welded connections
