2nd Ed. covers ASD and Plastic design. It 967 pages verses 1061 pgs of 3rd
ed. Its main focus is ASD with addition of plastic design. I do not know
anything about 1st ed. but I can't image it being much better as far as ASD.
I was trained in LRFD, and I'm interested in digging into ASD. I have a
copy of the 3rd edition of Salmon & Johnson, but it focuses on LRFD. If I
get the second edition, will it be strong in ASD, or should I get the first
edition...or a different book(s) all together? I'd like to have good
background as well as practical information.
