This design handbook, with a free windows-based computer programme on CD-ROM, allows the user to easily evaluate the strength of a cross-section and the buckling resistance of steel and aluminium members. Highlighting the theoretical basis of problems and the design approach necessary to overcome them, it comprehansively covers design to Eurocode 9, and AISI specifications.
Design of Metallic Cold-formed Thin-walled Members is an essential handbook for structural engineers in the design office. The software programme enables quick, accurate calculations to be made, and can reduce design time considerably. It will also be of interest to academics and postgraduate students.
