Flexural-Torsional Buckling of Structures provides an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of flexural-torsional buckling and demonstrates how to design against this mode of failure. The author first explains the fundamentals of this type of buckling behavior and then summarizes results that will be of use to designers and researchers in either equation or graphical form. This approach makes the book an ideal text/reference for students in structural engineering as well as for practicing civil engineers, structural engineers, and constructional steel researchers and designers. The book begins by introducing the modern development of the theory of flexural-torsional buckling through discussions on the general concepts of equilibrium, total potential, virtual work, and buckling. It then continues with in-depth coverage of hand methods for solving buckling problems, the analysis of flexural-torsional buckling using the finite element method, and the buckling of different types of structural elements and frames composed of various elastic materials. Other topics addressed include the design and inelastic buckling of steel members. The book's final chapter considers a collection of special topics.

Structural Stability: Theory and Implementation is a practical work that provides engineers and students in structural engineering or structured mechanics with the background needed to make the transition from fundamental theory to practical design rules and computer implementation. Beginning with the basic principles of structural stability and basic governing equations,Structural Stability is a concise and comprehensive introduction that applies the principles and theory of structural stability (which are the basis for structural steel design) to the solution of practical building frame design problems. Special features include: modern theories of structural stability of members and frames, and a discussion of how these theories may be utilized to provide design rules and calculation techniques for design important governing equations and the classical solutions used in design processes examples of analytical and numerical methods selected as the most useful and practically applicable methods available detailed information on the stability design rules of the 1986 AISC/LRFD Specifications for the design, fabrication, and erection of structural steel for buildings dual units (SI and English) with most of the material presented in a non-dimensional format fully worked examples, end-of-chapter problems, answers to selected problems, and clear illustrations and tables Am outstandingly practical resource, Structural Stability offers the reader an understanding of the fundamental principles and theory of structural stability not only in an idealized, perfectly elastic system, but also in an inelastic, imperfect system representative of the actual structural systems encountered in engineering practice.

Prepared by the Special Project Committee on Advanced Analysis of the Technical Committee on Structural Members of the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE. This report presents formal guidelines for the use of second-order inelastic analysis in the design and assessment of steel framing systems. This advanced analysis methodology focuses on the strength of the structural system as a whole, rather than the design load levels producing the first member failure. The report includes design rules, background and commentary regarding the rules, and benchmarks for columns and frames. It provides specific recommendations regarding the rigor of analysis, minimum modeling requirements, consideration of limit states, serviceability, and live load reduction, yet allows latitude for the judgment of the design engineer. The recommendations presented in this report will be particularly valuable to structural engineers, specification developers, and developers of structural analysis software.
