STRUCTURAL STEEL DESIGNERS' HANDBOOK
The need for a single reference book presenting concisely the basic theoretical principles, the state of the art in handling the routine problems, as well as the latest developments in structural steel design and construction is quite apparent. This book is a good step toward this goal. The main topics: basic background, building design and bridge design form the three parts of the book, subdivided in 14 sections. The contributors are mostly practicing engineers, or steel construction specialists in the industry. The handbook's main emphasis is on bridges; buildings are treated less extensively. Among subjects not covered are: towers, tanks, industrial structures, criteria for multistory buildings, large box girder bridges, movable bridges.
