About this book


This text aims to develop an understanding of Limit State Design as applied to structural steelwork. The use of the relevant codes of practice, in particular BS 5950: Part 1, is explained and demonstrated in numerous worked examples and illustrations. The treatment is both extensive and comprehensive, including a selection of design examples which are presented in a format typical of that used in a design office in order to encourage students to adopt a methodical and rational approach in preparing structural calculations.
