This is the fourth edition of the Structural Steelwork: Design to Limit State Theory, which proved to be very popular with both students and practising engineers. All the chapters have been updated and rearranged to comply with the Eurocode 3, Design of Steel Structures.
In addition, Structural Steel Work is also compliant with the other Eurocodes such as Eurocode 0, Basis of Structural Design, and Eurocode 1, Action of Structures.
The Structural Steel Work contains a detailed explanation of the principles underlying steel design and is intended for students reading for civil and/or structural engineering degrees in universities.
Structural Steel Work will also be useful for final year students involved in design projects and for practising engineers and architects who require an introduction to the Eurocodes. The topics are illustrated with fully worked examples, and problems are also provided for practice.
