The objective of this book is to impart the required knowledge to undergraduate students with respect to the design concepts for various steel structural members. Limit State Design as recommended by IS 800 : 2007 has been adopted in this text. This book will give an overview of the limit state design concepts, codal aspects, and design procedures for the structural members.

The fundamental concepts are explained very clearly with emphasis on codal provision. Tables and clause from the code books are given in the respective topics for ready reference. Design procedure is explained in steps for all the structural members. Behaviour of the members and failure modes are explained with diagrams and worked out example problems for all the possible variations.
