Description About Book Light-Weight Steel And Aluminium Structures From Amazon ICSAS ’99 – The Fourth International Conference on Steel and Aluminium Structures was a sequel to ICSAS ’87 held in Cardiff, UK, to ICSAS ’91 held in Singapore and to ICSAS ’95 held in Istanbul, Turkey. Keyed to the revised Specification for Aluminum Structures of the edition of the Aluminum Design Manual, it provides quick look-up tables for design calculations; examples of recently built aluminum structures-from buildings to bridges; and a comparison of aluminum to other structural materials, particularly by:
The conference was concerned with the analysis, modelling and design of light-weight or slender structures in which the primary material is structural steel, stainless or aluminium. The structural analysis papers presented at the conference cover both static and dynamic behaviour, instability behaviour and long-term behaviour under hygrothermal effects.

Aluminium alloy is a relatively more expensive material than steel although its weight is one-third of the steel. Thus the use of steel as a structure adds additional weight by 60%. Abstract: High strength steels are commonly used in the automotive industry to reduce mass and improve structural performance. This chapter discusses the history of steel in the manufacture of automobiles, the types of steels currently being used and the new advances in the types of steels that can be used for lightweighting automotive structures.
LIGHTWEIGHT STEEL FRAMING ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN GUIDE PREFACE This publication is intended as a guide for designers, speci˜ers and users of lightweight steel framing (LSF). LSF products are cold formed structural members used as studs, joists, rafters, purlins and girts and in assemblies such as steel roof trusses and panelized walls. This book deals with the design of steel structural members, and their connections, with emphasis on their use in bridges and buildings. Discussion of theory and behavior under the various combinations of loads such members must resist is followed by a discussion of applications according to standard specifications for load and resistance factor design (LRFD) and allowable-stress design (ASD).5/5(8).

This book discusses the use of aluminium in structural and non-structural applications and provides an introduction to designing structures made from aluminium or aluminium alloy elements. It provides a complete ready reference to the material properties and behavior of aluminium, and its use in structural design.5/5(1).
