New Book on Design of Steel Structures


New Book on Design of Steel Structures

Steel plated structures are important in a variety of marine and land-based applications, including ships, offshore platforms, power and chemical plants, box girder bridges and box girder cranes. During their lifetime, the structures constructed using support members, plates, stiffened panels/grillages and box girders, are subjected to various types of loading which is for the most part operational, but may in some cases be extreme or even accidental. The new book Ultimate Limit State Design of Steel Plated Structures reviews and describes both fundamentals and practical design procedures in this field.

The book, authored by Jeom Kee Paik (Pusan National University, South Korea) and Anil Thayamballi (Chevron Shipping, USA), presents derivation of the basic mathematical expressions is presented together with a thorough discussion of the assumptions and the validity of the underlying expressions and solution methods. Particularly valuable coverage in the book includes:
  • Serviceability and the ultimate limit state design of steel structural systems and their components
  • The progressive collapse and the design of damage tolerant structures in the context of marine accidents
  • Age related structural degradation such as corrosion and fatigue cracks

Furthermore, this book is also an easily accessed design tool which facilitates learning by applying the concepts of the limit states for practice using a set of computer programs which can be downloaded. In addition, expert guidance on mechanical model test results as well as nonlinear finite element solutions, sophisticated design methodologies useful for practitioners in industries or research institutions, selected methods for accurate and efficient analyses of nonlinear behaviour of steel plated structures both up to and after the ultimate strength is reached, is provided.
