Overview

Introduce the fundamentals of structural steel design with Segui’s market-leading STEEL DESIGN, 6th Edition. Rather than focus on the integrated design of buildings, STEEL DESIGN takes a unique approach by emphasizing the design of members and their connections. This book is designed to give you the flexibility to easily teach LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design), ASD (Allowable Stress Design), or both, as your time-permits. This best-selling textbook encourages the application of fundamental principles for design procedures as well as for practical design, all the while blending in a strong theoretical approach to enhance student development. While the book is ideal for junior-and senior-level engineering students, later chapters can also be used in graduate courses. Even practicing engineers will find this text to be a useful resource for reviewing current standards. Instead of focusing on the integrated design of buildings, the author emphasizes the design of members and their connections.

William T. Segui, The University of Memphis

William T. Segui is a Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at The University of Memphis, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1968. He holds a B.S.C.E, M.S., and Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina. After obtaining his B.S.C.E., he served as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Air Force. He then joined Wilbur Smith Associates, where he was a highway bridge designer. During graduate school, he received an NSF Graduate Traineeship. Since joining the Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Memphis, he has received two NASA/ASEE Summer Faculty Fellowships at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Dr. Segui has worked several summers for various consulting firms and for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. He received the University of Memphis Distinguished Teaching Award in 2000. Dr. Segui is an emeritus member of the American Institute of Steel Construction and is a member of the Committee on Manuals. He received the 2011 AISC Special Achievement Award for his contributions to steel design education. He is a Life Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a member of the Tennessee Structural Engineers Association. Dr. Segui is also a licensed professional engineer in Tennessee.

MindTap® is the digital learning solution that powers students from memorization to mastery. It gives you complete control of your course—to provide engaging content, to challenge every individual, and to build their confidence. Empower students to accelerate their progress with MindTap.

  • FLEXIBLE APPROACH OFFERS YOU THE OPTION TO TEACH LRFD OR ASD. This book is designed so that you can easily teach either LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design), ASD (Allowable Stress Design), or both approaches. This edition does emphasize LRFD as the most recent and applicable of the two approaches; however, most examples incorporate both LRFD and ASD solutions.
  • END-OF-CHAPTER PROBLEMS PROVIDE HANDS-ON PRACTICE WITH BOTH LRFD AND ASD APPROACHES. When appropriate, the required approach is specified within the statement of the problem.
  • ANSWERS TO SELECTED PROBLEMS APPEAR AT THE BACK OF THE BOOK. For your convenience, answers are provided within the book for key problems so readers can easily check their comprehension.
  • BOOK EFFECTIVELY BLENDS MEANINGFUL PRACTICE WITH AN EMPHASIS ON THEORY. Although this book is oriented toward practical design, the author presents the supporting theory to ensure students have the complete understanding necessary for engineering success.
