AN INVALUABLE WORKING TOOL FOR STEEL DESIGN

If it has anything to do with the design of steel structures, you'll find it in the Structural Steel Designer's Handbook. The Fourth Edition of the one-of-a kind reference updates descriptions and examples to reflect the latest code provisions of AISC, AASHTO, and AISI, as well as current loadings published by ASCE and adopted by the IBC (International Building Code). The text provides this essential data — and demonstrates its application.

This massive field manual for engineering professionals also includes the latest developments and trends in materials and methods. Handy tables, charts, formulas, and illustrations make decisions easier for both routine and exceptional structures.

Each of the 15 chapters is the work of outstanding engineering experts. From bolted and welded connections to member selection for building floors and roofs, from plate girders and trusses to cable-suspended bridges, this essential guide gives you examples of leading-edge steel design. Easy to follow and use, the Structural Steel Designer's Handbook is the tool of choice for both experienced engineers and those just launching their careers.

UPDATED TO INCLUDE:

  • AISC combined ASD and LRFD design standard for building frames
  • AASHTO specifications, applicable to virtually all highway bridges
  • AISI specifications for cold-formed members, now in force all over North America
  • ASCE-07 gravity, seismic, and wind loads, now part of the IBC
  • Alterations in the IBC
  • ASTM material standards, for selection of shapes, plates, bridge steels, sheets, tubing, and cable
  • 30 percent new or revised illustrations
  • Numerous new examples
  • Concentrated text, trimmed and focused on the newest design methods
  • Full coverage of members and connections for buildings and bridges, fabrication and erection, welding and bolting, codes, structural theory and standards, and properties of materials

Roger L. Brockenbrough (Pittsburgh, PA) is an engineering consultant working in the areas of product design and the development of technical information to facilitate improved steel designs. Formerly he was a Senior Research Consultant for U. S. Steel, involved in research studies on bridge girders (heat curving), pressure vessels, laminar imperfections, bolted connections (weathering steel), connections in HSS, corrugated metal pipe, and cold-formed steel. He is the author of numerous technical papers, is the editor of two current McGraw-Hill books, Structural Steel Designer's Handbook and Highway Engineering Handbook, and contributor to a third, Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers. He is a member of the AISC Specifications Committee (Chair of Subcommittee on Materials, Fabrication, and Inspection), Chair of the AISI Committee on Specifications for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, member of the AASHTO Flexible Pipe Liaison Committee, member of the Transportation Research Board Committee on Subsurface Soil-Structure Interaction, Chair of ASTM A05.17.2 section on Design and Installation of Corrugated Steel Pipe, and a Fellow and Life Member of ASCE.

Frederick S. Merritt (deceased) was a consulting engineer for many years, with experience in building and bridge design, structural analysis, and construction management. A Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a Senior Member of ASTM, he was a former senior editor of Engineering News-Record and an author/editor of many books, including McGraw-Hill's Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers and Structural Steel Designer's Handbook.
