This comprehensive guide clearly and concisely presents the fundamental theory associated with the design of steel structures.Steel Structures Design: ASD/LRFDintroduces the theoretical and fundamental basics of steel design and covers the detailed design of members and their connections. The book provides clear interpretations of: the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Steel Design Manual, 2010 Edition; the ASCE Minimum Design Loads for Building and Other Structures, 2005 Edition; the Seismic Design Manual, 2006 Edition; and the International Code Council (ICC) International Building Code (IBC), 2009 Edition. The code requirements are illustrated with design examples and solutions.Steel Structures Design: ASD/LRFD Provides comprehensive coverage of steel structures design, from fundamental principles to detailed design requirements Includes more than 250 design examples with concise, step-by-step solutions Provides a detailed interpretation of the current codes Covers seismic and wind forces and the associated lateral force resisting systems Presents direct solutions to techniques Contains problems and solutions for both the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) method and the traditional Allowable Stress Design (ASD) method Serves as a desk reference of building code as it applies to design of steel structuresComplete coverage Steel Buildings and Design Criteria; Design Loads; Behavior of Steel Structures Under Design Loads; Design of Steel Beams; Design for Shear and Torsion; Design of Axial Force and Combined Bending and Axial Force; Plastic Analysis and Design; Design of Tension Members; Design of Bolted Connections; Design of Welded connections; Plate Girders; Composite Construction; Design of Lateral Loads
