Geschwindner's 2nd edition of Unified Design of SteelStructures provides an understanding that structural analysisand design are two integrated processes as well as the necessaryskills and knowledge in investigating, designing, and detailingsteel structures utilizing the latest design methods according tothe AISC Code.The goal is to prepare readers to work in designoffices as designers and in the field as inspectors. This new edition is compatible with the 2011 AISC code as wellas marginal references to the AISC manual for design examples andillustrations, which was seen as a real advantage by the surveyrespondents. Furthermore, new sections have been added on: DirectAnalysis, Torsional and flexural-torsional buckling of columns,Filled HSS columns, and Composite column interaction. Morereal-world examples are included in addition to new use ofthree-dimensional illustrations in the book and in the imagegallery; an increased number of homework problems; and mediaapproach Solutions Manual, Image Gallery.

This highly illustrated manual provides practical guidance on structural steelwork detailing. It: · describes the common structural shapes in use and how they are joined to form members and complete structures · explains detailing practice and conventions · provides detailing data for standard sections, bolts and welds · emphasises the importance of tolerances in order to achieve proper site fit-up · discusses the important link between good detailing and construction costs Examples of structures include single and multi-storey buildings, towers and bridges. The detailing shown will be suitable in principle for fabrication and erection in many countries, and the sizes shown will act as a guide to preliminary design. The third edition has been revised to take account of the new Eurocodes on structural steel work, together with their National Annexes. The new edition also takes account of developments in 3-D modelling techniques and it includes more CAD standard library details.

Construction Calculations is a manual that provides end users with a comprehensive guide for many of the formulas, mathematical vectors and conversion factors that are commonly encountered during the design and construction stages of a construction project. It offers readers detailed calculations, applications and examples needed in site work, cost estimation, piping and pipefitting, and project management. The book also serves as a refresher course for some of the formulas and concepts of geometry and trigonometry. The book is divided into sections that present the common components of construction. The first section of the books starts with a refresher discussion of unit and systems measurement; its origin and evolution; the standards of length, mass and capacity; terminology and tables; and notes of metric, U.S, and British units of measurements. The following concepts are presented and discussed throughout the book: Conversion tables and formulas, including the Metric Conversion Law and conversion factors for builders and design professionals Calculations and formulas of geometry, trigonometry and physics in construction Rudiments of excavation, classification, use of material, measurement and payment Soil classification and morphology, including its physicochemical properties Formulas and calculations needed for soil tests and evaluations and for the design of retaining structures Calculations relating to concrete and masonry Calculations of the size/weight of structural steel and other metals Mechanical properties of wood and processing of wood products Calculations relating to sound and thermal transmission Interior finishes, plumbing and HVAC calculations Electrical formulas and calculations Construction managers and engineers, architects, contractors, and beginners in engineering, architecture, and construction will find this practical guide useful for managing all aspects of construction. Work in and convert between building dimensions, including metric Built-in right-angle solutions Areas, volumes, square-ups Complete stair layouts Roof, rafter and framing solutions Circle: arcs, circumference, segments

This book provides the means for a better control and purposeful consideration of the design of Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS). It deploys a detailed categorization of AESS and its uses according to design context, building typology and visual exposure. In a rare combination, this approach makes high quality benchmarks compatible with economies in terms of material use, fabrication methods, workforce and cost. Building with exposed steel has become more and more popular worldwide, also as advances in fire safety technology have permitted its use for building tasks under stringent fire regulations. On her background of long standing as a teacher in architectural steel design affiliated with many institutions, the author ranks among the world‘s best scholars on this topic. Among the fields covered by the extensive approach of this book are the characteristics of the various categories of AESS, the interrelatedness of design, fabrication and erection of the steel structures, issues of coating and protection (including corrosion and fire protection), special materials like weathering steel and stainless steel, the member choices and a connection design checklist. The description draws on many international examples from advanced contemporary architecture, all visited and photographed by the author, among which figure buildings like the Amgen Helix Bridge in Seattle, the Shard Observation Level in London, the New York Times Building and the Arganquela Footbridge.
