This book deals with the design of steel structural members, and their connections, with emphasis on their use in bridges and buildings. Discussion of theory and behavior under the various combinations of loads such members must resist is followed by a discussion of applications according to standard specifications for load and resistance factor design (LRFD) and allowable-stress design (ASD). Discussion of these two types of specifications are presented in separately numbered articles followed by worked-out examples. Salient Features Design problems and worked out examples are presented in both LRFD and ASD. Presentation and discussion of the design calculations for the truss spans and composite-beam approach spans of highway bridge in Maryland TABLE OF CONTENTS Preface Notations 1.
