## Limit State Design of Steel Structures, 2e?Limit State Design of Steel Structures is a basic textbook in structural steel design for undergraduate students. The book covers the fundamental aspects of analysis and design, and also discusses practical requirements such as safety, feasibility, and economy of structural elements. It is hoped that the text would also serve as an introduction to postgraduate students. Practicing civil engineers and consultants who need a review of current practice and current IS specifications will also find it useful as a reference. |
