This textbook has been prepared with the hope that its readers will, as have so many engineers in the past, become interested in structural steel design and want to maintain and increase their knowledge on the subject throughout their careers in the engineering and construction industries.

The material was prepared primarily for an introductory course in the junior or senior year but the last several chapters may be used for a graduate class.

The authors have assumed that the student has previously taken introductory courses
in mechanics of materials and structural analysis.

The authors’ major objective in preparing this new edition was to update the text
to conform to both the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) 2010
Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and the 14th edition of the AISC Steel
Construction Manual published in 2011.


A person traveling in the United States might quite understandably decide that steel is the
perfect structural material. He or she would see an endless number of steel bridges, buildings, towers, and other structures.
After seeing these numerous steel structures, this traveler might be surprised to learn that steel was not economically made in the United States until late in the nineteenth century, and the first wide-flange beams were not rolled until 1908.

The assumption of the perfection of this metal, perhaps the most versatile of structural materials, would appear to be even more reasonable when its great strength, light weight, ease of fabrication, and many other desirable properties are considered.These and other advantages of structural steel are discussed in detail in the paragraphs that follow.

High Strength

The high strength of steel per unit of weight means that the weight of structures will be
small. This fact is of great importance for long-span bridges, tall buildings, and structures situated on poor foundations.


The properties of steel do not change appreciably with time, as do those of a reinforced-concrete structure.


Steel behaves closer to design assumptions than most materials because it follows
Hooke’s law up to fairly high stresses. The moments of inertia of a steel structure can
be accurately calculated, while the values obtained for a reinforced-concrete structure
are rather indefinite.
