Overview

This well-known book has been fully updated to conform to the 1999 Load and Resistance Factor (LRFD) Design Specification and to the 2002 edition of the LRFD Manual of Steel Construction. A problem-solving software package, included with each book, contains practical applications and enables users to better understand the relationship between analysis and design. chapter topics include specifications, loads, and methods of design; analysis and design of tension members; introduction to axially loaded compression members; design of axially loaded columns; design of beams for moments; bending and axial force; bolted connections; eccentrically loaded bolted connections and historical notes on rivets; welded connections; building connections; composite beams; composite columns; built-up beams, built-up wide-flange sections, and plate girders; design of steel buildings; and systems design. For practicing engineers originally trained to use the ASD procedure—this book will assist them in the transition to the LRFD method.

Introduction

The authors' major objective in preparing this new edition was to update the text to conform to both the 1999 Load and Resistance Factor (LRFD) Design Specification and the 2002 edition of the LRFD Manual of Steel Construction.

Among the several changes made in the new specification and included in the steel manual are the following:

  1. The inclusion of data and equations in both U.S. customary units and metric units.
  2. The introduction of two new important ASTM steels, A913 and A992.
  3. A few revisions in bolt criteria.
  4. Revised design procedure for fatigue loadings.
  5. A new section concerning the evaluation of existing structures.

In addition to the revisions in the Specification, several changes and additions have been made in the text concerning the enclosed computer programs. First, the program previously named INSTEP has been updated to the new specifications and has been changed from a DOS format to a Windows format. It is now named INSTEP32. Though the program was written specifically to solve many of the textbook-type problems presented in this book, it has often been used by professional engineers in their design practices.

Despite the practical applications of INSTEP32 and its value in teaching steel design, the authors feel that many professors would like their students to have some experience with at least one of the major commercial steel-design programs on the market today, in hopes that such experience would enable students to cross the bridge more quickly between the classroom and actual design practice. As a result, a student version of SAP 2000 has been included with INSTEP32 on the enclosed diskand presented herein. Use of this software will also enable the student to better understand the relationship between analysis and design.

Chapter 20, a new chapter in the text, presents an introduction to the subject of systems design. In this regard, recent requirements for "capstone" courses in our engineering schools have made the subject of "open-ended" problems a serious component of design studies. Therefore, the topic of systems design along with "open-ended" problems and an introduction to SAP 2000 are included in Chapter 20.

The authors wish to thank the following persons who reviewed this edition: Robert Abendroth, Daniel G. Linzell, Rolla Idriss, W. H. Walker, and Ahmad M. Itani.

They also thank the reviewers and users of the previous editions of this book for their suggestions, corrections, and criticisms. They are always grateful to anyone who takes the time to contact them concerning any part of their book.
