Ductile Design of Steel Structures, 2nd Edition
McGraw Hill Professional, Jul 14, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 928 pages
Comprehensive coverage of the background and design requirements for plastic and seismic design of steel structures
Thoroughly revised throughout, Ductile Design of Steel Structures, Second Edition, reflects the latest plastic and seismic design provisions and standards from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the Canadian Standard Association (CSA). The book covers steel material, cross-section, component, and system response for applications in plastic and seismic design, and provides practical guidance on how to incorporate these principles into structural design.
Three new chapters address buckling-restrained braced frame design, steel plate shear wall design, and hysteretic energy dissipating systems and design strategies. Eight other chapters have been extensively revised and expanded, including a chapter presenting the basic seismic design philosophy to determine seismic loads. Self-study problems at the end of each chapter help reinforce the concepts presented. Written by experts in earthquake-resistant design who are active in the development of seismic guidelines, this is an invaluable resource for students and professionals involved in earthquake engineering or other areas related to the analysis and design of steel structures.

This is what you get when a novelist, a researcher, and a philosophy major collaborate. I'd give it 5 stars, but this second edition has a predictable plot and too many puns and obscure literary references. -- Tim O'Shenko
Simply riveting. Guided only by remembrances of tests past, engineer Tom Perdu must yield to an embrittled foe, or risk buckling to ultimate forces. But his connections prove fragile! A bracing read that should bolt to the top tier. -- S. Rabelli, DFA
