About this Item: New Age International (P) Limited, 2014. Softcover. Condition: New. 5th or later edition. This book represents the translation of the author`s structural design experience in the United States of America in terms of the Indian Code of Practice and his perception of the needs of the engineering students of the Indian schools. A former Lecturer in Civil Engineering at Aligarh Muslim University in India and, later, a practicing engineer in the U.S.A. over three decades, the author has presented a pleasant and useful blend of the theory and practice of structural design in steel. The book incorporates just enough theory for the readers to feel comfortable with the details of the design problems that form an integral part of this presentation. The basic concepts and fundamental ``building blocks`` of steel design presented in the ``traditional`` chapters on Structural Fasteners, Tension Members, Beams etc., are later used to familiarize the readers with the more interesting and challenging design topics of Special Connections, Multistorey Building Frames, Industrial Buildings and Plastic Analysis and Design. Illustrative examples with a practical bias are extensively used and problems in day-to-day engineering with possible solutions are emphasized. Written in an easy and concise style, the book incorporates a large number of example problems along with a set of expanded Steel Tables to help the readers hone their knowledge and skills. Students as well as practicing engineers will find this book of considerable interest and use. Printed Pages: 686. Seller Inventory # 27015BV
