Looking Out/looking in
Its practical, down-to-earth presentation avoids excessive detail while providing a comprehensive study of structural steel design, including coverage of tension and compression members, beams, beam-columns, and connections. In later chapters, the book delivers a systematic discussion of composite members and plate girders. Synopsis This introductory textbook for undergraduate engineering students outlines the basic concepts in structural steel design, and discusses tension meters, compression members, beams, mean-columns, simple connections, eccentric connections, composite connections, and plate girders. Appendices cover plastic analysis and design, and structural steel design based on allowable stress.
