I believe a good book is "Steel Buildings" by Crawley......not sure if this is the exact title...but it will address a lot of what you are referring to...

Subject: STEEL DESIGN REFERENCE


Hi there,
I am sure many of you are familiar with the book "Design of Wood Structures 
- ASD" written by Donald Breyer. I think it is a very good book covering all 
aspects of wood design in a clear, simple and complete manner. I hope you 
agree.

I am looking for a similar publication for steel structures. One that does 
not only focus on the formulae of steel design only, but also in the loads 
applied, common design assumptions, common design criteria, general 
structuring (geometry) techniques for different kinds of steel structures, 
etc.

I don't know if I explained myself, but I'm looking for a book to read page 
by page. I can always go to the AISC Manual if I need specific steel design 
codes or specs.

Thank you for your kind help.

Best regards,

Juan Jo
