This book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of flexural-torsional buckling, and shows how to design against this mode of failure. It also gives detailed summaries of knowledge on flexural-torsional buckling so that it can be used as a source book by practising engineers and designers, researchers and advanced students of structural
