Concrete-Filled Double-Skin Steel Tubular Columns: Behavior and Design provides a thorough review of the recent advances on the behaviour and design of concrete-filled double-skin steel tubular (CFDST) columns. Drawing on their extensive knowledge and research, the authors cover topics such as different CFDST columns under axial compression, innovative techniques including the use of rubberised concrete, columns with different cross-sections, and steel material envelops and failure modes. This book is an overview of research carried out by this highly experienced and leading research group with specialist knowledge in the topic. It is an invaluable resource for researchers, graduates and post-graduate civil engineers and civil engineering designers.

Mostafa Fahmi Hassanein Professor, Department of Structural Engineering, Tanta University, Tanta, Gharbia, Egypt. Mostafa Fahmi Hassanein has completed his PhD at the age of 31 years from Tanta University, Egypt. Within his PhD study, he has participated in a doctoral steel course at Lulea University of technology, Sweden. He is currently "Professor of Structural Engineering" at the Department of Structural Engineering at Tanta University. His research focuses on the analysis and design of steel and composite structures, with the aim of improving the Design Codes and Standards that are currently used worldwide (e.g. EC3, EC4, AISC and AS 4100), to design more effective structures with minimised initial material costs and life-cycle costs. He has published more than 95 papers in international/Elsevier journals. His research works show his ability to collaborate with researchers from different disciplines and countries. He has served as a reviewer for different reputed international journals and conferences. He has also invited to the 8th European Solid Mechanics Conference (ESMC), Graz, Austria, 2012 as an "Invited Speaker". He has awarded the "State's Incentive Award in the Engineering Sciences" in 2015 from the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, Egypt. Recently, he has awarded the "First Class Excellence Medal", from the Egyptian President in 2017. He is also a Consultant Engineer in the field of "Design of Steel Structures" in Egypt. He serves as an editorial board member for Thin-Walled Structures, ISSN No. 0263-8231, Elsevier. Based on his achievements, his biography has been accepted into Who's Who in the World, which is comprised of the top 3% of the professionals in the country. He also worked as a professor in the Southwest Petroleum University, Chengdu, China, between July 2019 and Jun 2020. More recently, he has named in Stanford University List for Best 2% Scientists Worldwide, 2020 and 2021.
