This book is an effort to provide an introductory platform for the learners of steel structural design as part of undergraduate curriculum. Elements design on limit state design as envisaged by Indian code of Practice - General construction in steel IS 800-2007 are explained. Theoretical concepts which form the basis of codal provisions are explained.
Emphasis on principal axes based compression members, peripheral load distribution for base plates, Limit state design of base plate bearing column with moment, un-symmetrically loaded beam design, tension field web design in plate girders, section and member design for bi-axially loaded beam columns are unique areas covered in the book.
Practical insight to field requirements has been provided in chapters of applied design. Gantry girders and Industrial roof design.
Structural Design • Tension Members • Welded Connections • Bolted Connections • Compression Members • Column Base • Beams • Laterally Unrestrained Beams • Plate Girders • Industrial Roof Structure • Design of Members under Combined Forces • Gantry Girders and Columns • Tables
• Splitting of design problem into basic steps
• Inclusion of simplified design rules which will help the practicing engineers
• Examples under each chapter to illustrate the concepts discussed
