If it has anything to do with the design of steel structures, you'll find it in the Structural Steel Designer's Handbook. The Fourth Edition of the one-of-a kind reference updates descriptions and examples to reflect the latest code provisions of AISC, AASHTO, and AISI, as well as current loadings published by ASCE and adopted by the IBC (International Building Code). The text provides this essential data -- and demonstrates its application.

This massive field manual for engineering professionals also includes the latest developments and trends in materials and methods. Handy tables, charts, formulas, and illustrations make decisions easier for both routine and exceptional structures.

Each of the 15 chapters is the work of outstanding engineering experts. From bolted and welded connections to member selection for building floors and roofs, from plate girders and trusses to cable-suspended bridges, this essential guide gives you examples of leading-edge steel design. Easy to follow and use, the Structural Steel Designer's Handbook is the tool of choice for both experienced engineers and those just launching their careers.
