Design of Cold-formed Steel Structures. Eurocode 3: Design of Steel Structures. Part 1-3 Design of cold-formed Steel Structures

  • Published: October 2012
  • Region: Global
  • 654 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd

The book is concerned with design of cold-formed steel structures in building based on the Eurocode 3 package, particularly on EN 1993-1-3.
It contains the essentials of theoretical background and design rules for cold-formed steel sections and sheeting, members and connections for building applications.
Elaborated examples and design applications - more than 200 pages - are included in the respective chapters in order to provide a better understanding to the reader.

“The authors are clearly extremely experienced in the structural design and behaviour of cold-formed steel and they are also deeply knowledgeable about the content of EN 1993-1-3. The credentials of the authors and fact that the book forms part of the ECCS series of Eurocode Design Manuals means that this will become an authoritative text for engineers with an interest in the design of cold-formed steel.”  (The Structural Engineer, 1 July 2013
