Advanced Steel Design of Structures examines the design principles of steel members under special loads and covers special geometric forms and conditions not typically presented in standard design books. It explains advanced concepts in a simple manner using numerous illustrative examples and MATLAB® codes.



  • Provides analysis of members under unsymmetrical bending
  • Includes coverage of structures with special geometry and their use in offshore applications for ultra-deep water oil and gas exploration
  • Presents numerical modeling and analysis of steel members under fire conditions, impact, and blast loads
  • Includes MATLAB® examples that will aid in the capacity building of civil engineering students approaching this complex subject

Written for a broad audience, the presentation of design concepts of steel members will be suitable for upper-level undergraduate students. The advanced design theories for offshore structures under special loads will be an attractive feature for post-graduate students and researchers. Practicing engineers will also find the book useful, as it includes numerous solved examples and practical tutorials.

About the Author

Dr. Ahmad Vasel-Be-Hagh is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and the founder of the Fluid Mechanics Research Laboratory at Tennessee Technological University. He develops analytical models, numerical simulations, and laboratory/field experiments to add physical insight to the understanding of fluid mechanics for more accurate prediction and control of flows. Applications of his research include renewable energy generation and storage as well as fluid-structure interactions. To date, Dr. Vasel-Be-Hagh has co-authored over twenty journal papers and book chapters. He has edited multiple books and special journal issues for major publishers including Springer and Taylor & Francis.

Dr. David S-K. Ting worked on Combustion and Turbulence (Premixed Turbulent Flame Propagation) during his graduate years. He then experimented with Convection Heat Transfer and Fluid-Structure Interactions prior to joining the University of Windsor. Professor Ting is the founder of the Turbulence & Energy Laboratory. Dr. Ting supervises students on a wide range of research projects, primarily in the Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy areas. To date, he has co/supervised over seventy graduate students and co-authored more than one hundred and twenty journal papers. Other than authoring Basics of Engineering Turbulence (Academic Press) and Engineering Combustion Essentials (Cambridge Scholars Publishing), Ting has co-edited three books with the Institute of Engineering and Technology and one with Springer.
