Structural Steel Design (3rd Edition) – eBook PDF

Structural Steel Design, 3rd Edition, (PDF) is a practical, simple and concise guide to structural steel design – using the Allowable Strength Design (ASD) and the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methods and current codes. The ebook covers all of the theoretical concepts and includes several practical exercises and two capstone projects to prepare the reader with the skills for designing real-world structures. Engineering students intending to go for careers in structural design and consulting engineering, and practicing, structural engineers will find the ebook useful because of the holistic, project-based learning approach that connects the gap between engineering education and professional practice. The design of every building component is provided so the reader can see how one element fits into the bigger picture of an entire building design and the construction process. Structural details and practical example exercises that realistically mirror what happens in professional design practice are presented.


  • Includes reviewed content/example exercises that conform to the current codes (ASCE 7, ANSI/AISC 360-16, and IBC)
  • Includes coverage to ASD and examples with ASD to parallel those that are done with LRFD
  • Follows an all-inclusive approach to structural steel design that considers the design of individual steel framing members in the background of a complete structure
