This classic manual on structural steelwork design was first published in 1955, since when it has sold many tens of thousands of copies worldwide.
For the sixth edition, now available for the first time in paperback, all chapters have been comprehensively reviewed and revised.
- Text and worked examples revised in accordance with BS5950-1: 2000 and BS5400-3: 2000
- A completely new chapter on brittle fracture and fatigue, explaining the theory behind the current requirements of BS5950 and BS5400.
- New chapter on simple connections and moment connections, summarising industry best practice in these important areas.
- New chapter on Sustainability and Steel Construction reflecting the rapidly growing importance of this topic.
- New chapter on the Eurocodes, summarising the principal differences with current national standards.
- Rewritten chapter on steel piling capturing recent developments.
The book continues to provide, in one volume, the essential knowledge for the design of conventional steelwork.
