Design of Steel Structures to Eurocodes defines the rules for the design of steel and composite building structures according to Eurocodes, including the structure as a whole, as well as the design of separate structural components and connections. It addresses the subsequent topics: the basis of design in the Eurocodes framework; the loads applied to building structures; the models and methods of structural analysis in blend with the structural imperfections and the cross-section classification according to compactness; the load combinations for the numerous limit states of design and the main steel properties and steel fabrication methods; the cross-section resistances when subjected to shear and axial forces, bending or torsional moments and to combinations of the above; component design and more precisely the design of components sensitive to instability phenomena, such as torsional, flexural and lateral-torsional buckling (a section is devoted to composite beams); alternative configurations to be considered during the conceptual design phase for numerous types of single or multi-storey buildings, the design of connections and joints executed by welding or bolting, including beam to column connections in frame structures; and the design of crane supporting beams.
Furthermore, the fabrication and erection procedures, in addition to the related quality requirements and the quality control methods are comprehensively discussed (including the procedures for bolting, welding and surface protection). The ebook is supplemented by over fifty numerical examples that describe in detail the appropriate procedures to deal with every particular problem in the design of steel structures in accordance with Eurocodes. Design of Steel Structures to Eurocodes, (PDF) is a perfect learning resource for students of structural engineering, and also a valuable reference for practicing engineers who perform designs on basis of Eurocodes.
NOTE: The product only includes the ebook, Design of Steel Structures to Eurocodes in PDF. No access codes are included.
