Steel and Composite Structures: Behaviour and Design for Fire Safety presents a systematic and thorough description of the behaviour of steel and composite structures in fire, and shows how design methods are developed to quantify our understanding. Quantitative descriptions of fire behaviour, heat transfer in construction elements and structural analysis using numerical methods are all addressed and existing codes and standards for steel and composite fire safety design are critically examined. Using a comprehensive and systematic description of structural fire safety engineering principles, the author explains and illustrates the important difference between the behaviour of isolated structural elements and whole structures under fire conditions. This book is a vital source of information to structural and fire engineers. It will also be of considerable interest and value to students and researchers in this field.

Steel and composite steel–concrete structures are widely used in modern bridges, buildings, sport stadia, towers, and offshore structures. Analysis and Design of Steel and Composite Structures offers a comprehensive introduction to the analysis and design of both steel and composite structures. It describes the fundamental behavior of steel and composite members and structures, as well as the current design criteria and procedures given in Australian standards AS/NZS 1170, AS 4100, AS 2327.1, Eurocode 4, and AISC-LRFD specifications. Featuring numerous step-by-step examples that clearly illustrate the detailed analysis and design of steel and composite members and connections, this practical and easy-to-understand text: Covers plates, members, connections, beams, frames, slabs, columns, and beam-columns Considers bending, axial load, compression, tension, and design for strength and serviceability Incorporates the author’s latest research on composite members Analysis and Design of Steel and Composite Structures is an essential course textbook on steel and composite structures for undergraduate and graduate students of structural and civil engineering, and an indispensable resource for practising structural and civil engineers and academic researchers. It provides a sound understanding of the behavior of structural members and systems.

This book details the basic concepts and the design rules included in Eurocode 3 Design of steel structures: Part 1-8 Design of joints Joints in composite construction are also addressed through references to Eurocode 4 Design of composite steel and concrete structures Part 1-1: General rules and rules for buildings. Attention has to be duly paid to the joints when designing a steel or composite structure, in terms of the global safety of the construction, and also in terms of the overall cost, including fabrication, transportation and erection. Therefore, in this book, the design of the joints themselves is widely detailed, and aspects of selection of joint configuration and integration of the joints into the analysis and the design process of the whole construction are also fully covered. Connections using mechanical fasteners, welded connections, simple joints, moment-resisting joints and lattice girder joints are considered. Various joint configurations are treated, including beam-to-column, beam-to-beam, column bases, and beam and column splice configurations, under different loading situations (axial forces, shear forces, bending moments and their combinations). The book also briefly summarises the available knowledge relating to the application of the Eurocode rules to joints under fire, fatigue, earthquake, etc., and also to joints in a structure subjected to exceptional loadings, where the risk of progressive collapse has to be mitigated. Finally, there are some worked examples, plus references to already published examples and to design tools, which will provide practical help to practitioners.

Recent Progress in Steel and Composite Structures includes papers presented at the XIIIth International Conference on Metal Structures (ICMS 2016, Zielona Góra, Poland, 15-17 June 2016). The contributions focus on the progress made in theoretical, numerical and experimental research, with special attention given to new concepts and algorithmic procedures, and to background knowledge as well as the development and implementation of rules and recommendations for codification worldwide. The keynote contributions are from: (1) J. Michael Rotter (University of Edinburgh, UK), on advances in the shell buckling phenomenon, which is of particular importance for industrial metal structures such as silos, tanks and vessels; (2) Milan Veljkovic (Lulea University, Sweden), on conceptual and design aspects of supporting structures for wind energy generation, which topic is related to the current worldwide discussion on the benefits of wind power in the light of high vulnerability of modern economies to changes in fuel prices and the imminent shortage of fossil resources; (3) Jiang Qian (Tongji Univeresity, China), on advances in seismic assessment and control of steel-concrete composite high-rise buildings; (4) Johan V. Rietief (University of Stellenbosch, South Africa), international efforts to harmonize and unify reliability-based codification within the area of civil engineering structures. Recent developments in metal and steel-concrete composite structures in Poland are summarized in the 5th and final keynote paper by Tomasz Siwowski (Rzeszów University of Technology, Poland) and Krzysztof Żółtowski (Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland), in which they describe advances in modern structural shaping, material engineering and technology, as well as in computation and design, using examples of recent, spectacular bridges and sporting venues in Poland. In addition to the five keynote papers the book contains 62 two-page extended abstracts of individual contributions delivered by 164 Authors and Co-authors from 13 countries of four continents. The CD containing all full-length papers is an attachment to the conference book. The individual papers cover a wide variety of topics: -Cold-formed sections and profiled sheeting - Steel-concrete composite structures - Buckling and effect of bracings - Dynamics, fatigue and seismic analyses - Bridges, Structural steel, metallurgy and behaviour in fire - Strength, stability and postbuckling behaviour - Joints and connections - Silos, tanks and vessels and - Reliability, masts and towers Recent Progress in Steel and Composite Structures is a useful reference source to academics, researchers, graduate students and practicing engineers.

This book, Analysis and Design of Steel and Composite Structures offers a comprehensive introduction to the analysis and design of both steel and composite structures. Design of steel and composite structures is the design of compression members, effective lengths of columns, design of plate girders design by buckling analysis, design of portal frames, behaviour and design of beam-columns, connection design, plastic design (beams, simple frames), composite steel-concrete structures, elastic and rigid plastic analysis of composite beams, composite columns, composite connections. Composite construction is the dominant form of construction for the multi-storey building sector. Its success is due to the strength and stiffness that can be achieved, with minimum use of materials.

A significant amount of research has been undertaken in Japan over the last forty years on the difficult problems of the stability of steel and steel-and-concrete composites structures and their components. Based on this research, Japanese design engineers, fabricators and contractors have built some of the most daring and innovative modern structures in recent times. The aim of this book is to present the essence of this research to researchers and design engineers worldwide in the hope that it will contribute to the international study of steel structures. The book focuses not only on theory and computation but also on experimental verification. It includes topics such as "Coupled Instability", "Cyclic Buckling and Impact Strength" and "Database for Steel Structures" in which Japanese research has made particularly strong advances. The book commemorates the retirement of its editor and contributing author, Professor Fukumoto, from Osaka University who has dedicated twenty years to this field of research.
