Product Description

From the Publisher

The authors' objective is to expand the reader's design capabilities beyond steel, concrete or timber and to present aluminum as another construction material. Describes the properties of aluminum; its structural performance in beams, columns and members; aluminum fabrication, welding and mechanical connections; along with its inspections and testing. Thorough examples demonstrate procedures and illustrate the usage of ASD versus LRFD techniques. Scores of design aids in the form of charts and graphs will save designers valuable time. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

On the First Edition:

"The book is a success in providing a comprehensive introduction to the use of aluminum

structures . . . contains lots of useful information."

Technical guidance and inspiration for designing aluminum structures

Aluminum Structures, Second Edition demonstrates how strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum opens up a whole new world of design possibilities for engineering and architecture professionals. Keyed to the revised Specification for Aluminum Structures of the 2000 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 steel. Topics covered include:
* Structural properties of aluminum alloys
* Aluminum structural design for beams, columns, and tension members
* Extruding and other fabrication techniques
* Welding and mechanical connections
* Aluminum structural systems, including space frames, composite members, and plate structures
* Inspection and testing
* Load and resistance factor design
* Recent developments in aluminum structures

Great book. Lots of background combined with direct and easily understandable explanations. The only thing i would change is to add more examples of real world problems.

It does not cover the current specification (2010), but the basics are still the same and the format makes for an easy read. Bottom line is, aluminum design isn't a whole lot different from steel, this book covers all the nuances you need to know in order to make the transition.

One of the most informative text books I have ever read. The amount of info and research that went into this book really impresses me. If you want to get a solid background on aluminum and welded structure design, don't hesitate to buy this book.
