Designers' Guide to EN 1993-1-1 Eurocode 3: Design of Steel Structures - General Rules and Rules for Buildings concentrates on the most commonly encountered aspects of structural steel design, with an emphasis on the situation in buildings. Much of the publications content is, therefore, devoted to the provisions of the Part 1-1: General rules and rules for buildings of EN 1993. This is, however, supplemented by material on loading, joints and cold-formed design.
For each of the principal aspects covered, the book provides background to the structural behaviour, explanation of the codified treatment including departure from existing practice (BS 5950), and numerous worked examples.
This guide should serve as the primary point of reference for designing steel structures to Eurocode 3, and is essential reading for civil and structural engineers, code-drafting committees, clients, structural-design students and public authorities.
