Preface :

My purpose in writing this book is twofold. First, to help practicing engineers who are preparing for the civil structural Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam or the structural engineering (SE) exam, both administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). Second, to help engineering students who are learning about structural steel. This book, then, is designed to be useful as a guide for studying on your own or as a text for an introductory or intermediate class in steel design.

This second edition has been thoroughly updated to follow the fourteenth edition of AISC’s Steel Construction Manual. The changes that AISC made to the fourteenth edition are not as far-reaching as those to the thirteenth, but they are considerable all the same, and I have revised many sections of this book to keep it up to date. At the end of the Introduction, I’ve summarized the most important changes to the fourteenth edition of the Steel Construction Manual and given pointers to where they are covered here in this book.

I want to express my thanks to C. Dale Buckner, PhD, PE, SECB, who reviewed an early draft of the first edition of this book and made many valuable suggestions for improvement. Thanks as well to the staff at PPI who worked on this new edition, including Magnolia Molcan, editorial project manager; Scott Marley, lead editor (who also typeset the book); Ralph Arcena, EIT, engineering intern; Tom Bergstrom, production associate and technical illustrator; Cathy Schrott, production services manager; and Sarah Hubbard, director of product development and implementation.
