Unified Design of Steel Structures

Louis F. Geschwinder ... 460 pages - Publisher: Wiley; (August, 2007) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0471475580 - ISBN-13: 978-0471475583 ...

Based on the understanding that the strength of an element or structure can be determined independently of the design philosophy, the 2005 unified ANSI/AISC 360-o5 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings Successfully brought together the two divergent approaches to the design of steel structures, the ASD and the LRFD. Unified Design of Steel Structures demystifies this new specification for both practicing engineers and students. Ranging from the fundamentals to more advanced topics, you'll master the essentials of unified design, including: The principles of limit states design and how these principles are incorporated into both LRFD and ASD approaches + The development of load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors + The development of load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors. + The various shapes and grades of steel available for construction. + The various member types-tension, compression, and bending + Plate girders, the design of bracing, and composite members + Connection design-potential connection types and the strength of bolts, welds, and connecting elements; simple connections; and moment resisting connections.
