Description The up-to-date edition of the classic guide--from leading experts in structural stability theory and research

First published in 1960, the Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures is the reference of choice for civil and structural engineers seeking reliable, in-depth coverage of stability problems and research. This extensively revised Fifth Edition bridges theory and practice to offer simplified and refined procedures both for design and for the assessment of design limitations, as well as detailed guidance on design specifications, codes, and standards concerning the stability of metal structures.

Written by members of Structural Stability Research Council task groups and other specialists, all material has been updated to reflect recent developments in each subject area. The Fifth Edition features eight new chapters covering the latest procedures in horizontal curved steel I-girders, composite columns and structural systems, stability of angle members, bracing, frame stability, doubly curved shells and shell-like structures, stability under seismic loading, and stability analysis by the finite element method.

Complete with over 100 new illustrations, plus references, technical memoranda, and name and subject indexes, the Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures, Fifth Edition is ready to go to work for a new generation of structural and civil engineers in their daily practice.
