Description

Behavior and Design of High-Strength Constructional Steel presents readers with extensive information on the behavior of high-strength constructional steels, providing them with the confidence they need to use them in a safe and economic manner to design and construct steel structures. The book includes detailed discussions on the mechanical properties of HHS while explaining the latest progress in research and design guidelines, including material properties at ambient and elevated temperatures. In addition, the book explains the behavior of elementary members subject to different types of loads and load combinations, and those that are integral to the design of bolted and welded connections.

The hysteretic behavior of HHS materials and members are also discussed. This is critical for application and designs under earthquakes and fire conditions. The buckling behaviors of HSS box-section and H-section columns are included in terms of experimental and numerical investigations, along with the geometric imperfection induced by welding.

Key Features
