Practical Design of Steel Structures

Practical Design of Steel Structures

There are numerous books available discussing the analysis and design of steel structures.
These texts consider isolated parts of a structure, with the emphasis primarily on theory
and little focus on practical design and the considerations and challenges that engineers
face in the design offi ce and on the construction site.
This book takes a holistic approach presenting a comprehensive description and explanation
of the analysis and design process for any structure and its component structural
elements, from the initial design concept through to fi nal construction.
The text has been written with the structural calculations presented in a simple and
lucid way. Taking a step-by-step approach, the book discusses design philosophy, functional
aspects of structure, selection of construction material and accompanying methods
of construction, with reference to the relevant clauses of codes of practice. Included are
design sketches, tables and references.
For illustrative purposes, a specific structure

This book describes the practical aspects of analysis and design based on the latest steel
structure design codes of practice Eurocode 3: Part 1-1 and Part 1-8: Design of steel structures
for buildings and Design of joints. Included is the comparative analysis of results for
model design of a beam and column applying Euorocode 3 and BS 5950. 2000. The following
relevant Eurocodes applicable to the analysis have also been included: Eurocode
0: Basis of structural design (BS EN 1990:2002) and Eurocode 1: Densities, self weights,
imposed loads, snow loads, wind loads, and cranes and machinery.
This book will be invaluable as a practical design guide and reference text book for
fi nal year university students, newly qualifi ed university graduates, practising engineers,
consulting engineers working in the design offi ce and at the construction site, and for those
appearing for professional examinations.
