Book Description

STEEL DESIGN covers the fundamentals of structural steel design with an emphasis on the design of members and their connections, rather than the integrated design of buildings. The book is designed so that instructors can easily teach LRFD, ASD, or both, time-permitting. The application of fundamental principles is encouraged for design procedures as well as for practical design, but a theoretical approach is also provided to enhance student development. While the book is intended for junior-and senior-level engineering students, some of the later chapters can be used in graduate courses and practicing engineers will find this text to be an essential reference tool for reviewing current practices.

Review
"I really like this text because of the suggestions and hints provided. The examples in the text also match well with the ones in the AISC Manual. Together, they give the students the full range of techniques they will need when they become practicing engineers."

"Easy to understand and quite clear."

"The book is well written and at an appropriate level for a first steel design class."

5Great and easy textbook.
By Hai Le
I really like this textbook. Most of the material is straight forward. Just be careful when it makes references to the ASCI to make sure you have the correct edition it asks for.
