Advanced Analysis and Design of Steel Frames Description

Steel frames are used in many commercial high-rise buildings, as well as industrial structures, such as ore mines and oil rigs. Enabling the construction of ever lighter and safer structures, steel frames have become an important topic for engineers.

This book, split into two parts covering advanced analysis and advanced design of steel frames, guides the reader from a broad array of frame components through to advanced design ways like settled, dependability, and system dependability style approaches. This book connects the dependability analysis of structural systems to advanced analysis of steel frames and ensures that the steel frame design delineated is founded on system dependability.

Important options of this book include:

  • fundamental equations governing the elastic and plastic equilibrium of beam, sheer beam, column, joint-panel, and brace elements for steel frames.
  • analysis of elastic buckling, elasto-plastic capability, and earthquake-excited behavior of steel frames;
  • background knowledge of a lot of precise analysis and safer design of steel frames against gravity and wind, in addition to key discussions on seismal analysis.
  • theoretical treatments, followed by more examples and applications;
  • a review of the evolution of structural design approaches, and reliability-based advanced analysis, followed by the ways and procedures for a way to ascertain sensible design formulas.

Advanced design and Analysis of Steel Frames provide students, researchers, And engineers with an integrated examination of this core civil and structural engineering topic. The logical treatment of each advanced analysis followed by advanced design makes this a useful reference tool, comprising reviews, methods, procedures, examples, and applications of steel frames in one complete volume.

Professor Li received his Ph.D. in Structural Engineering at Tongji University in 1988. That same year he started working at the University as a lecturer in Structural Engineering, and over the next six years, he worked his way up to Associate Professor, and then Professor in 1994. His research interests lie mainly in the behavior and design of multi-story steel buildings, the fire resistance of steel structures, and the dynamic identification of structures.

He is an active member on the Editorial Board of five International journals covering areas of research in steel and composite structures, structural engineering and materials, computational structural engineering, and advanced steel construction. He is the author of four books in Chinese and over eighty research papers.
