Design of Steel Structures is designed to meet the requirements of undergraduate students of civil and structural engineering. This book will also prove useful for postgraduate students and serve as an invaluable reference for practising engineers unfamiliar with the limit states design ofsteel structures.This book provides an extensive coverage of the design of steel structures in accordance with the latest code of practice for general construction in steel (IS 800 : 2007). The text is based on the modern limit states approach to design and covers areas such as the properties of steel, types ofsteel structures, important areas of structural steel technology, bolted connections, welded connection, design of trusses, design of plate girders, and design of beam-columns. Each chapter features solved examples, review questions, and practice problems as well as ample illustrations thatsupplement the text. Chapters on advanced topics such as protection of steel structures against corrosion and fire, fatigue-resistant design, and design for torsion have been included in a CD that accompanies the book. The CD also includes an exhaustive list of references as well as appendices onimportant information about properties of steel and soils and some computer programs for design that add value to the rich contents of book.
