Limit State Design of Steel Structures is book for civil engineering by S.K. Duggal, published in 2017.

Limit State Design of Steel Structures presents the basic principles of structural steel design in a simple, practical and logical manner. It covers the fundamental aspects of analysis and design and also discusses practical requirements such as safety, feasibility and economy of structural elements. It is hoped that the text would serve the undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as practicing civil engineers and consultants who need a review of current practice and IS specifications.

Key Features:

  • Incorporates the latest codal provisions of IS: 800-2007
  • Provides well-labeled figures with 3D views of structural components and connections to enable high level of comprehension
  • Notes provided within chapters to clarify conceptual doubts and highlight salient aspects of problem solving
