I agree with Michael Valley on Gaylord, Gaylord & Strotmeyer. The Gaylord
and Gaylord texts are classic steel design texts in the same manner that
Urquart and O'Rourke texts are classic concrete design texts. G, G & S
doesn't just say that they cover both ASD and LRFD, they *do* cover both by
working examples, clearly indicated, using both procedures.
While Salmon & Johnson (3rd Edition) states that they cover both methods,
they quickly stop talking about ASD and devote the rest of the book to LRFD.
