This highly illustrated manual provides practical guidance on structural steelwork detailing. It:
describes the common structural shapes in use and how they are joined to form members and complete structures
explains detailing practice and conventions
provides detailing data for standard sections, bolts and welds
emphasises the importance of tolerances in order to achieve proper site fit-up
discusses the important link between good detailing and construction costs
Examples of structures include single and multi-storey buildings, towers and bridges. The detailing shown will be suitable in principle for fabrication and erection in many countries, and the sizes shown will act as a guide to preliminary design.
The second edition has been updated to take account of changes to standards, including the revisions to BS5950 and includes a new chapter on computer aided detailing.
