Stability of metal structures: a world view
Structural Stability Research Council, 1991 - Technology & Engineering - 921 pages
Do you know how many specifications deal with stability design of metal structures? Do you know which provisions are the same, which are different, & why they are different? Do you know which specifications use allowable stress design & which use Limit States Design (or LFRD)? At your fingertips you will find all the major specifications of the world, an indication of some of their differences, & some of the reasons why these differences exist. Geographical regions covered - Australia, China, Eastern Europe, Japan, North America & Western Europe. Topics covered - Compression Members; Built-Up Members; Beams; Plate & Box Girders; Beam-Columns; Frames; Arches; Triangulated Structures; Tubular Structures; Shells; Cold-formed Members; Composite Members; Earthquakes; & General Provisions & Design Requirements. This book is a 940 page comprehensive world-wide study of over 100 specifications & codes on stability design of metal structures. It is the only book in the world which evaluates specifications & codes, compares & contrasts them & explores some of the major reasons for their differences.
