Steel Design – 6th edition

Description

Introduce the fundamentals of structural steel design with Segui’s market-leading STEEL DESIGN, 6th Edition. Rather than focus on the integrated design of buildings, STEEL DESIGN takes a unique approach by emphasizing the design of members and their connections. This book is designed to give you the flexibility to easily teach LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design), ASD (Allowable Stress Design), or both, as your time-permits. This best-selling textbook encourages the application of fundamental principles for design procedures as well as for practical design, all the while blending in a strong theoretical approach to enhance student development. While the book is ideal for junior-and senior-level engineering students, later chapters can also be used in graduate courses. Even practicing engineers will find this text to be a useful resource for reviewing current standards. Instead of focusing on the integrated design of buildings, the author emphasizes the design of members and their connections.

Steel Design, Sixth Edition covers the fundamentals of structural steel design for
buildings. This book is intended for junior-and senior-level engineering students,
although some of the later chapters can be used in a combination undergraduate/
graduate course. Practicing civil engineers who need a review of current practices
and the current AISC Specification and Steel Construction Manual will find
the book useful as a reference. Students should have a background in mechanics
of materials and analysis of statically determinate structures. Knowledge of
statically indeterminate structural analysis is not a prerequisite for the use of
this book.


Structural design is a complex endeavor, involving the synthesis of many
processes. This book does not cover the integrated design of buildings, but presents
some of the “building blocks” for structural steel design. We focus on the
analysis and design of individual members and connections, rather than complete
structures.


LRFD and ASD Coverage


Prior to 2005, load and resistance factor design (LRFD) was covered by the 1999
AISC Specification and LRFD Manual of Steel Construction, Third Edition.
Allowable stress design (ASD) was covered by the 1978 AISC Specification and
Manual of Steel Construction, Ninth Edition. In 2005, the two approaches were
unified in a single specification and a single manual, the thirteenth edition of the
Steel Construction Manual. In addition, changes were made to many provisions
of the specification, both in form and substance. The unified approach continues
with the 2016 Specification and the 15th edition of the Steel Construction Manual.
Both documents have been revised to reflect current research and practice, but the
format remains the same.
