Steel Structures: Considerations to Reduce Failures due to Instability provides a detailed overview of the issues associated with the instability of steel structures. As structures have developed and evolved to utilize both slender and less heavy elements, the incidence of buckling instability has increasingly been encountered. Communication between the design and construction teams, changes in the design and construction contract process, and continuing education are vital to the thorough understanding of potential instability of steel structures and for preventing reoccurrence of failures.
This book focuses on the various forms of instability associated with compressive forces, bending, shear, and torsion, including global and local buckling. Topics covered include:
This book will be of value to structural and civil engineers, architects, contractors, steel fabricators, erectors, and those involved with the assessment and design of steel structures.
