9780070674578: Composite Construction Design

This book helps you design composite structures with ease. Now there's a single-source guide to the latest codes, specs and state-of-the art techniques for designing composite steel and concrete structures. In "Composite Construction Design for Buildings", Ivan M. Viest and 23 other experts show you step-by-step how to capitalize on the major innovations in designing composite columns and walls calculating load and resistance and exploiting the latest elasto-plastic analysis techniques. All procedures are based on new LTFD codes and strength design methods and include practical design examples and case histories. It's simply the fastest, easiest way to get groundbreaking information on: strength and serviceability of composite beams, joists, trusses and stub girders; differential column shortening in tall buildings; retrofitting buildings for seismic, wind and gravity forces; designing moment resisting frames, braced frames, shear walls and horizontal diaphragm connections time dependent properties of concrete; and much more.

From the Back Cover:

By the mid-1960s, composite design of beams and floors, based on working loads and stresses, had become the standard in the nation's design community. yet within the last two decades, basic change has made its way into U.S. structural building design practice, centered around the introduction of three major innovations: composite columns and walls, load and resistance factor design, and elastoplastic analyses. Produced by 24 experts in the field and based on the latest LRFD codes and strength design procedures, this is the only reference on composite construction for buildings that examines all three of these critical developments. An essential guide for design engineers and students of structural engineering, it thoroughly surveys the current thinking in the field. And it helps the structural engineer become familiar with the latest design principles and methods, and their application in structural framing for all types of steel-framed buildings. The text's narrative is enhanced by nearly 200 figures and is supported by over 450 reference (listed in Chapter 7), a historical review of composite construction, and 18 informative building case histories. The design of composite elements is illustrated with numerous step-by-step examples. This indispensable resource brings the structural engineer up-to-date with emerging technology and demonstrates how this new knowledge will ultimately produce better and more economical structures.
