Free Books Civil and Architectural - Design Of Cold Formed Steel

Design Of Cold Formed Steel - Following pioneering research in the 1940s, research into cold-formed steel intensified in the 1970s and led to numerous national European design specifications, and subsequently the preparation of Part 1-3 of Eurocode3 (EN1993-1-3) for cold-formed steel structures. Now a Euronorm, EN1993-1-3 is fully embedded in the Eurocode framework. This book serves as a reference text for design engineers using EN1993-1-3. It forms part of the suite of ECCS Eurocode Design Manuals prepared in recent years for other parts of EN1993 and other Eurocodes to aid the implementation of Eurocodes in European states. The book draws on the authors’ considerable experience with designing cold-formed steel structures, both as academics and practitioners, and strikes a balance between theory and practice. 

Applications of cold-formed steel have broadened over the years. Coldformed steel is now used as primary structural elements, as in steel framed residential buildings, steel storage racks, portal frames, and tubular truss and frame structures, and as secondary structural elements, as in roofing and wall systems featuring purlins, girts and corrugated steel sheeting. Additionally, integrated building systems have been developed, such as cassettes, as have stressed skin principles for designing the building envelope. The design of cold-formed steel is perceived to be challenging by many structural engineers because the thinness of the steel leads to buckling and failure modes not found in the design of hot-rolled and fabricated steel structures. Furthermore, roll-forming techniques have developed rapidly in recent decades and spawned.
