The main purpose of this book, Steel Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams,is to be a study reference for engineers and students who are preparing to take either the civil structural PE exam or the structural SE exam, both of which are given by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). These exams—even the breadth section of the civil PE exam, which is more general in its scope—often contain structural questions that go beyond the basics. If you want to be prepared for all questions in steel design, this book will give you the thorough review
you need.

However, anyone who wants to learn more about the most current steel design methods can benefit from this book. It can serve as a guide for those who are studying on their own or as a text in a formal course.

After a quick review of some basics in the early chapters, each chapter in turn explores in greater detail a different aspect of steel design. Among the topics covered are

  • loads and load combinations
  • analysis methods
  • design of beams, columns, and plate girders
  • design of members under combined stresses
  • design of composite members
  • bolted and welded connections

Many examples are included with detailed, step-by-step solutions to show you how to attack various kinds of problems and apply the relevant AISC criteria. The principles, equations, and information that you’ll learn in this book are those you will need to solve the kinds of problems in structural steel that you’re most likely to encounter on the civil structural PE and structural SE exams.
