Steel Structures Design for Lateral and Vertical Forces (Hardcover) (Alan Williams)
About this item
A fully updated, hands-on guide to the design of steel structures
Steel Structures Design for Lateral and Vertical Forces, Second Edition, covers the fundamentals of behavior and the latest design methods for a variety of steel structures and loads. Thoroughly revised to align with the 2015 International Building Code and the latest relevant AISC codes, this comprehensive resource includes expanded coverage of seismic loads and new design methods for multi-story frames, gable frames, and grid frameworks. A brand-new chapter on lateral loads provides explanations of traditional design methods as well as newer innovations in buckling-restrained braces and steel plate shear walls. End-of-chapter problems and solutions apply each concept to real-world design situations and show how code requirements are applied to both the ASD and LRFD methods.
- Covers the 2015 International Building Code and the AISC 325-05 and 327-12 codes
- Each chapter presents engineering fundamentals followed by concise explanations of relevant building codes
- Design examples and step-by-step solutions illustrate practical applications of each requirement
