This book is a comprehensive, stand alone reference for structural steel design. Giving the audience a thorough introduction to steel structures, this book contains all of the need to know information on practical design considerations in the design of steel buildings. It includes complete coverage of design methods, load combinations, gravity loads, lateral loads and systems in steel buildings, and much more. Intended to bridge the gap between theory and practice, Structural Steel Design: A Practice Oriented Approach provides the essentials of individual component design while at the same time showing how these components are put together to form an entire building. Just like in real practice! This “holistic approach” is essential for any practicing engineer or any student looking to work in this field. Key features of this extraordinary text include: Realistic structural drawings * Practical real-world examples including the use of the design aids in the AISC Manual * A unique chapter on “Practical Considerations” provides a holistic design view while reinforcing the connection between structural elements and building design in practice. * Case-study example to reinforce the holistic design view * Step-by-step practical designs * A detailed treatment of structural loads including gravity and lateral loads that is weaved seamlessly into the structural design process. * Essential information including additional topics such as framing layout, floor vibrations analysis, Structural strengthening, torsion, and more!
