This introductory text on structural steel design continues Jack McCormac's tradition of writing textbooks that are accessible to students. Complicated theoretical derivations are presented in an easy-to-understand manner without overburdening students with technical explanations. The latest edition of this popular text conforms to AISC's 1989 Standards on Allowable Stress Design. Numerous topics have been expanded in the fourth edition including block shear, flexural-torsional buckling, and eccentrically loaded connections. Due to the expanded interest in the LRFD method, four chapters have been added to the text as an introduction to the subject.

About the Author:
This introductory text on steel design can be easily understood by civil engineering majors as well as by students enrolled in community college civil engineering programs. Complicated theoretical derivations are presented in an accessible manner, not overburdening students with technical explanations. The book conforms to the 1989 AISC Standards, 9th edition, on Allowable Stress Design, and also introduces students to the alternate LRFD Method of steel design.
Jack McCormac is Alumni Professor of Civil Engineering, Emeritus at Clemson University. He is the author of numerous textbooks in the field of civil engineering. His contributions to engineering education and the engineering profession have been recognized by many including the American Society for Engineering Education and the American Institute of Steel Construction. Professor McCormac belongs to the American Society of Civil Engineers and served as the principal civil engineering grader for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying.
