"Ramulu Vinnakota's Steel Structures: Behavior and LRFD stresses both the design of steel structures and the behavior of steel members and connections - thus creating a unique approach in a text by covering the interaction of design and behavior." "Designers must understand structural behavior as an integral part of the design process, and chapters 1 to 5 thoroughly cover this material. The balance of the chapters covers the elements that make up a steel building structure: members and connections. In each chapter, discussion of theory and behavior of the member under various combinations of loads it must resist is followed by a discussion of design applications." "The book is also unique in that it has three large chapters (6, 12 and 13) devoted to connections, allowing for the most important yet least understood components of steel structures to be thoroughly covered."--Jacket.
