It is now almost 25 years since this manual was first published. Its purpose now, as then, is to provide an introduction and guide to those in the constructional steelwork industry who are likely to be involved with the principles concerning the detailing of structural steel. The third edition of this important detailing manual recognises the principal changes which have occurred over this period of time. There continues to be a marked improvement in steel's market share for buildings and bridges, both here in the UK and in many overseas' countries. Design and construction engineers, and architects, have continued to develop their appreciation for the often striking and awe-inspiring structures that have been designed and built in steel. But for the general public, who first see and
marvel at these buildings and bridges, the creation, planning and development of any new steel structure is largely an unknown story. The many hours of work required to transform a sketch, resulting from a brain-storming meeting, into shaped pieces of elegant steelwork, are for the most part not well understood or even appreciated by the public at large. But less well understood is that   has markedly changed. During that period, the mix has moved from being predominantly industrial to being predominantly commercial. Steelwork has most convincingly established itself as the modern day material, being without equal for the many highly-visible prestigious and stimulating structures which adorn our landscape throughout the country.
