Written specifically for the engineering technology/technician level, this book offers a straight-forward, elementary, noncalculus, practical problem-solving approach to the design, analysis, and detailing of structural steel members. Using numerous example problems and a step-by-step solution format, it focuses on the classical and traditional ASD (Allowable Stress Design) method of structural steel design (the method still most used today) and introduces the LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design) method (fast-becoming the method of choice for the future).
