Steel Structures: Practical Design Studies, Fourth Edition, by Hassan Al Nageim is currently available for a steep price reduction as a PDF ebook.
This well-known ebook on steel buildings is now available in its fourth edition, which includes references to both British and Eurocodes Standards. The entirety of the content has been brought up to date where appropriate and rewritten, and brand new examples that have been worked on have been incorporated. The meaning, the goal, and the limits of structural design, as well as sections on energy savings and environmentally sustainable steel building, have all been updated.
The fundamentals of structural engineering and the design of steel structures are discussed in the first few chapters of the fourth edition of Steel Structures. The remaining chapters of the book are devoted to an in-depth discussion of the analysis and design of various types of structures, with the goal of presenting intricate designs in a manner that is easy to grasp and approachable. These buildings come in a variety of configurations, including those with one or more stories, floor systems, and wide-span configurations. Each design example is illustrated with applications that are based on current Eurocodes or British Standard design data. This helps the reader to participate in the context of the design process, which typically takes place in actual offices and develops real design skills.
The program places a strong emphasis on practical design in order to assist newly certified engineers and undergraduate students in bridging the gap between their academic studies and their employment in the design office. In addition, practicing engineers who are in need of a refresher course on up-to-date methods of design and analysis to EC3 and EC4 will find the ebook to be valuable. It also includes a large number of worked examples.
Additionally included are two brand new chapters that focus on the design of cased steel columns and plate girders according to EC4 and EC3, both with and without rigid end posts. The references have been thoroughly modernized and now include addresses of helpful websites.
