This invaluable handbook provides engineers and technicians with more than 5,000 calculations for solving day-to-day problems in all ten major engineering fields. The new Fourth Edition features numerous new areas from new design codes in civil engineering to miniaturization, new approaches to HVAC design, composite usage in engineering design, and laptop computer office and field calculations. "The Standard Handbook of Engineering Calculations" complies with new environmental requirements in engineering....
In the following calculation procedures, the design of steel members is executed in accordance with
the Specification for the Design, Fabrication and Erection of Structural Steel for Buildings of the
American Institute of Steel Construction. This specification is presented in the AISC Manual of Steel
Most allowable stresses are functions of the yield-point stress, denoted as Fy in the Manual. The
appendix of the Specification presents the allowable stresses associated with each grade of structural
steel together with tables intended to expedite the design.
