Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The eBook copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


Structural Steel Design: A Practice-Oriented Approach, 2e, bridges the gap between theory and practice, helping readers learn the basics of steel design and how to practically apply that learning to actual steel-framed building projects.


Teaching and Learning Experience

  • Takes a holistic approach by showing how each individual component design in a steel-framed building is incorporated into a complete building design as one would find in practice.
  • Introduces a design project as part of the end-of-the-chapter problems to expose readers to the important aspects of a real-world steel building design project.
