Structural Design of Steelwork to EN 1993 and EN 1994

Structural Design of Steelwork to EN 1993 and EN 1994

This book conforms to the latest recommendations for the design of steel and composite
steel–concrete structures as described in Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures
and Eurocode 4: Design of composite steel–concrete structures. References to relevant
clauses of the Codes are given where appropriate. Note that for normal steelwork
design, including joints, three sections of EN 1993 are required:
• Part 1–1 General rules and rules for buildings
• Part 1–5 Plated structural elements
• Part 1–8 Design of joints

Additionally if design for cold formed sections is carried out from first principles then
Part 1–3 Cold formed thin gauge members and sheeting is also required.
Whilst it has not been assumed that the reader has a knowledge of structural design,
a knowledge of structural mechanics and stress analysis is a prerequisite. However,
as noted below certain specialist areas of analysis have been covered in detail since
the Codes do not provide the requisite information. Thus the book contains detailed
explanations of the principles underlying steelwork design and provides appropriate
references and suggestions for further reading.
The text should prove useful to students reading for engineering degrees at University,
especially for design projects. It will also aid designers who require an introduction to
the new Eurocodes.
