Structural Steel Design, Third Edition is a simple, practical, and concise guide to structural steel design – using the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and the Allowable Strength Design (ASD) methods. The book covers all of the theoretical concepts and includes numerous practical exercises and two capstone projects to equip the reader with the skills for designing real-world structures. Engineering students intending to pursue careers in structural design and consulting engineering, and practicing, structural engineers will find the text useful because of the holistic, project-based learning approach that bridges the gap between engineering education and professional practice. The design of each building component is presented so the reader can see how each element fits into the bigger picture of an entire building design and the construction process. Structural details and practical example exercises that realistically mirror what occurs in professional design practice are presented.
