`Dit onderwijsboek is bedoeld voor civiele en bouwkundige studenten. De tekst behandelt de basisprincipes van het ontwerpen in staal in veertien hoofdwtukken, toegelicht met rekenvoorbeelden uit de praktijk. Het boek gaat ook in op onderwerpen als staal-beton constructies, het ontwerp van verbanden voor belasting door wind of aardbeving en het plastisch ontwerpen van gebouwen.'
Bouwen Met Staal
This accessible text introduces the basic elements of steel structure design. Topics are presented in a logical progression to provide the reader with a broas and in-depth understanding of the design process. The author first introduces tension and compression, then moves to bending and torsion, and then discusses components such as connections, anchor bolts, base plates, and plate girders. This organization of subject matter parallels that theAISC Steel Construction Manual, which simplifies instruction when the two books are used together. Design of Steel Structures features a chapter on bracings for wind and earthquake forces written in response to new federal regulations. This material makes this crucial aspect of construction an integral part of the introduction to design. The book also includes a thorough treatment of the plastic analysis method, the first time this material is covered in a book of this nature. Emphasizing the allowable stress design method (ASD), the author utilizes numerous examples from actual construction projects. The load and resistance factored design method (LRFD) is also discussed and demonstrated.
Convenient tables offer simplified approaches to torsional functions, as well as SI unit conversions. The final chapter illustrates how to design tall buildings without using sophisticated computers. Incorporating topics not usually found in design texts, as well as real life examples, this volume will serve as a practical and comprehensive introduction to steel structure design for both undergraduate and graduate students. The material is suitable for both one-and two-semester courses. It also offers lucid updates on aspects of design for practicing structural engineers and architects.
