Show synopsis This well-known book has been fully updated to conform to the 1999 Load and Resistance Factor (LRFD) Design Specification and to the 2002 edition of the LRFD Manual of Steel Construction. A problem-solving software package, included with each book, contains practical applications and enables users to better understand the relationship between analysis and design. chapter topics include specifications, loads, and methods of design; analysis and design of tension members; introduction to axially loaded compression members; design of axially loaded columns; design of beams for moments; bending and axial force; bolted connections; eccentrically loaded bolted connections and historical notes on rivets; welded connections; building connections; composite beams; composite columns; built-up beams, built-up wide-flange sections, and plate girders; design of steel buildings; and systems design. For practicing engineers originally trained to use the ASD procedure--this book will assist them in the transition to the LRFD method.
