Format: Hardcover
Tamboli's connection handbook complements the AISC Connections Manual beautifully. In a clear, easy-to-follow way, it addresses all of the major procedures for connecting structural elements and the philosophy behind them. The handbook uses thoughtful examples and good photos to explain how connections work and are built. The tips it gives, especially for connections to composite members and space trusses, are particularly helpful in practical design. I have never seen a more complete, quality connections manual, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their knowledge of the latest connection techniques.

Format: Hardcover
This text while having some good design examples, is not through as you may expect.

"Steel Structures: Design and Behavior" by Salmon and Johnson remains a better reference; what can a say, it's a classic. Other useful references would be the "Manual of Steel Construction: Volume II Connections" and for those designers that still remain in love with ASD "Engineering for Steel Construction: A Source Book on Connections" would be a reference to acquire.

This book is not the in depth resource that it claims to be. Salmon and Johnson's Steel Structures book does a better job teaching connection design.

Had the information I was looking for in braced frame design using the uniform force method. A large portion of the book is dedicated to braced frame connections and truss connections which a resource I was looking for.
