Practical Design of Steel Structures presents practical design examples and calculations for a multi-bay, steel-framed industrial building under the actions of a variety of loads (travelling crane loads, dead and imposed loads and wind forces). For the first time, engineers and students alike can appreciate the complete design process through the analysis of the whole structure and the design of structural members, all in compliance with Eurocode (EC)3. The calculations are presented in a simple and lucid way, employing a step-by-step approach stating the design philosophy, design considerations and clarifying the referred clauses of the code of practice. However, before analysing the structure and the design of its structural elements, it is necessary to understand the theoretical background and how the structure behaves under the actions of various loads, based upon practical design and field experience. The author considers the structural arrangement with respect to selection and availability of construction material, the cost within the scheduled construction programme and the overall budget. In addition he examines the buildability of the structure with regard to space restriction, method of construction and the geotechnical conditions of the site. The essence of this book is the simplicity and clarity of approach in the complete analysis of the whole structure and the structural design of every member. Augmented by design sketches, this book will prove valuable to practising engineers in design offices and students on structures courses
