Structural Steel Design: A Practice-Oriented Approach, 2e, bridges the gap between theory and practice, helping readers learn the basics of steel design and how to practically apply that learning to actual steel-framed building projects.


Teaching and Learning Experience

  • Takes a holistic approach by showing how each individual component design in a steel-framed building is incorporated into a complete building design as one would find in practice.
  • Introduces a design project as part of the end-of-the-chapter problems to expose readers to the important aspects of a real-world steel building design project.
