Steel Structures Design and Behavior

Libro: Steel Structures Design and Behavior
Autor: Charles G. Salmon - John E. Johnson
Editorial: Third Edition

The publication of this third edition reflects the continuing changes occurring in design requirements for structural steel, particularly the formal adoption by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) of a specification for Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD).
Design of structural steel members has developed over the past 90 years from a simple approach involving a few basic properties of steel and elementary mathematics to a sophisticated treatment demanding a thorough knowledge of structural and material behavior. Present design practice utilizes knowledge of mechanics of materials, structural analysis, and particularly, structural stability, in combination with nationally recognized design rules for safety.
