Practical and easy to use, this text lays a solid groundwork for beginning and intermediate students to pursue careers in architecture, construction, or civil engineering. The text clarifies the vital interdependence between structural steel design and fabrication drawings, equipping students to work flexibly with both. First and foremost a drafting book, Structural Steel Drafting and Design gives an overview of structural design theory while providing numerous examples, illustrations, and real-world assignments. Students also become acquainted with critical tables and reference material from industry-standard sources, as well as the merits of Load and Resistance Factor Design and Allowable Strength Design.

"The Timber Construction Manual has become the definitive design and construction industry source for building with structural glued laminated timber. Revised to cover the 2011 National Design Specification for Wood from the National Forest Products Association, IBC 2009 ASCE 7-10, and AITC 117-2004, this new edition contains the latest design procedures for glulam construction and an expanded collection of real-world design examples supported with detailed schematic drawings. Information and recommendations are based on the most reliable technical data available and reflect commercial purposes found to be the most practical"--
For ease of comparison all the plans have been drawn to the same scale." "The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography and a listing of the relevant norms and standards, making this work an essential reference for all architects and engineers."--BOOK JACKET.

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.
