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