Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The definitive text in the field, thoroughly updated and expanded

Hailed by professionals around the world as the definitive text on the subject, Cold-Formed Steel Design is an indispensable resource for all who design for and work with cold-formed steel. No other book provides such exhaustive coverage of both the theory and practice of cold-formed steel construction. Updated and expanded to reflect all the important developments that have occurred in the field over the past decade, this Third Edition of the classic text provides you with more of the detailed, up-to-the-minute technical information and expert guidance you need to make optimum use of this incredibly versatile material for building construction.

Wei-Wen Yu, an internationally respected authority in the field, draws upon decades of experience in cold-formed steel design, research, teaching, and development of design specifications to provide guidance on all practical aspects of cold-formed steel design for manufacturing, civil engineering, and building applications. Throughout the book, he describes the structural behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections from both the theoretical and experimental perspectives, and discusses the rationale behind the AISI design provisions. Cold-Formed Steel Design, Third Edition features complete coverage of:
* AISI 1996 cold-formed steel design specification with the 1999 supplement
* Both ASD and LRFD methods
* The latest design procedures for structural members
* Updated design information for connections and systems
* Contemporary design criteria around the world
* The latest computer-aided design techniques
Cold-Formed Steel Design, Third Edition is a necessary tool-of-the-trade for structural engineers, manufacturers, construction managers, and architects. It is also an excellent advanced text for college students and researchers in structural engineering, architectural engineering, construction engineering, and related disciplines. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Writen as a text book, this work looks at in particular the behavior of cold formed steel members. It gives complete and useful information regarding the strength of thin elements common to cold formed steel and a guide to design. The information is also very applicable to larger hot rolled steel member design in that it illustrates what design assumptions are taken for granted when designing with thicker members. Subjects included are flexural and compression members, cylindrical tubular members, connections, diaphragms, shell roofs structures, corrugated sheet, and composite design. Overall a very useful resource.

Format: Hardcover
Cold formed steel is cheap and widely supply in some country. By using the code in this book, I can reduce so much material cost from expensive imported wide flange into a self made double I beam by using 2 C light lip. This book is practical can be use in real construction by following detailed example.
The code is very new and up to date. This is the book you should not miss..

Although this is the best book on the subject, this book is filled with errors. Make sure to follow along with the code to make sure the authors are referencing the correct code section and equation. On some pages, there is some very important commentary missing that should be referenced from the code before presenting two different equation; I had to look through the code to make sense of this. There should be an errata put out for these errors. I looked on their website but couldn't find one.

I have not gone through 1 chapter yet. But the inroduction is already illuminating about aspects of cold-formed members, which are not so clearly explained in other books I've come across. The only setback is it is not in SI units, making it hard to use in places like Singapore.
