From the Back Cover:

A Clear Guide to the New ANSI/AISC 360-05 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings.

Based on the understanding that the strength of an element or structure can be determined independently of the design philosophy, the 2005 unified ANSI/AISC 360-o5 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings Successfully brought together the two divergent approaches to the design of steel structures, the ASD and the LRFD. Unified Design of Steel Structures demystifies this new specification for both practicing engineers and students.

Ranging from the fundamentals to more advanced topics, you'll master the essentials of unified design, including:

  • The principles of limit states design and how these principles are incorporated into both LRFD and ASD approaches
  • The development of load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors
  • The development of load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors.
  • The various shapes and grades of steel available for construction.
  • The various member types-tension, compression, and bending
  • Plate girders, the design of bracing, and composite members
  • Connection design-potential connection types and the strength of bolts, welds, and connecting elements; simple connections; and moment resisting connections

In accordance with the book's unified coverage, every example in Unified Design of Steel Structures is complete for both LRFD and ASD, and homework problems at the end of each chapter are designed so that either LRFD or ASD provisions may be assigned. There are also problems designed to show comparisons between ASD and LRFD solutions.

Ideal as a text for a first course in steel design for civil and architectural engineers, Unified Design of Steel Structures also provides a solid review for practicing engineers who wish to learn the provisions of the unified specification and apply them to their practices.

Louis F. Geschwindner, PhD, PE, is Vice President of Engineering and Research at the American Institute of Steel Construction and Professor Emeritus of Architectural Engineering at Pennsylvania State University.
