The second edition has been updated to conform to the latest (9th) edition of the AISC Steel Construction Manual and the 1989 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings. The practical problem/solution-oriented approach to the design, analysis, and detailing of structural steel established in the first edition has been maintained. It is written at a mathematical level appropriate for engineering technology.

While the objective of this Third Edition remains the same as its predecessors--to furnish readers with a basic understanding of the strength and behavior of structural steel members and their interrelationships in simple structural systems --the text has been both updated and improved for today's audience.From the Back Cover:
Applied Structural Steel Design, Fourth Edition, continues to serve readers with a basic understanding of the strength and behavior of structural steel members and their interrelationships in simple structural systems. By providing content that is primarily an elementary, noncalculus, practical approach to the design and analysis of structural steel members, using numerous example problems and a step-by-step solution format, this text has remained true to its reader-friendly tradition. This edition, however, is a transitional text that bridges two methods of design that are currently being used: Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Allowable Stress Design (ASD). Most engineering professionals agree that LRFD will become the dominant method in the future. However, since the traditional ASD method remains popular and practical and is still widely used, this text uses the traditional method while devoting entire chapters to the LRFD method.Key features of this edition:
