Introduce the fundamentals of structural steel design with Segui's market-leading STEEL DESIGN, 6th Edition. Rather than focus on the integrated design of buildings, STEEL DESIGN takes a unique approach by emphasizing the design of members and their connections. This book is designed to give you the flexibility to easily teach LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design), ASD (Allowable Stress Design), or both, as your time-permits. This best-selling textbook encourages the application of fundamental principles for design procedures as well as for practical design, all the while blending in a strong theoretical approach to enhance student development. While the book is ideal for junior-and senior-level engineering students, later chapters can also be used in graduate courses. Even practicing engineers will find this text to be a useful resource for reviewing current standards. Instead of focusing on the integrated design of buildings, the author emphasizes the design of members and their connections.
