The most complete, up-to-date metal building systems guide

Fully revised for the latest building codes and industry trends, Metal Building Systems, Third Edition, explains how to select, specify, and design preengineered buildings with confidence. In this book, a practicing structural engineer goes beyond manufacturer-supplied specifications to provide impartial and objective information that can save you money and time.

A new chapter on anchor bolts and embedments, many new illustrations, plus new and updated design examples, are included in this practical reference. End-of-chapter review questions reinforce the material presented.
