Construction time constraints are partly responsible for the increasingly prevalent use of structural steel. The need for swift completed framework and fabrication is of paramount importance. This extensive manual looks at the various aspects of steel construction. It covers the full scope of structural steelwork detailing, including fundamentals, draughting practice and conventions, conventional methods of detailing components, full scale constructed facilities and computer aided practices. A number of codes have also been included for those engineers who wish to carryout in-depth study of practices where jobs are in progress.
Both commercial and industrial buildings, bridges and offshore structures are represented in this publication. A necessary purchase for the designer or detailer who prepares the working drawings for the fabrication of steelwork. A definitive text, this book serves as a both a primer for trainee draughtsmen and a reference manual for more experienced engineers and personnel.
