The 4th edition of this popular steel structures ebook contains references to both British and Eurocodes Standards. All the material has been updated where necessary and revised and new worked examples are included. Sections on the meaning; the purpose; and limits of structural design; energy savings; and sustainable steel building have been updated.

The initial chapters of Steel Structures 4e cover the essentials of structural engineering and structural steel design. The remainder of the ebook is dedicated to a detail examination of the analysis and design of selected types of structures; presenting complex designs in an understandable and user-friendly way. These structures include a range of single and multi-story buildings; floor systems and wide-span buildings. Each design example is illustrated with applications based on current Eurocodes or British Standard design data; thus assisting the reader to share in the environment of the design process that normally takes place in practical offices and develops real design skills.

Emphasis is placed on practical design with a view to helping undergraduate students and newly qualified engineers bridge the gap between academic study and work in the design office. Practising engineers who need a refresher course on up-to-date methods of design and analysis to EC3 and EC4 will also find the ebook useful; and many worked examples are included.

2 new chapters on the design of cased steel columns and plate girders with and without rigid end posts to EC4 & EC3 are included too. References have been fully updated and include useful website addresses.
