Description - Plastic Design of Frames: Volume 2, Applications by Jaques Heyman
The plastic method is the most efficient way of designing steel structures. In this textbook two of the pioneers who developed the method outline the simple theory and the techniques involved in analysis and design. It covers the needs of undergraduates studying engineering, and those of most designers. A special feature is the large number of graded examples accompanied by numerical solutions. SI (metric) units are adopted throughout.
