"Handbook of Structural Steel Connection Design and Details"

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Also in the current issue of Structure magazine (p. 65) is mention of the "Handbook of Structural Steel Connection Design and Details," by Akbar R. Tamboli, for "only" $99.95.

I was wondering if anyone had seen it, used it, or had an opinion on its usefulness, especially for seismic applications. 

TIA

The May 2006 edition of Structure Magazine arrived at my office today.  In
it there is an article about Albert Fink, German immigrant, railroad
engineer, bridge designer of the mid-1800's, who designed bridges for the
B&O and L&N Railroads.  The article includes sketches of a type of bridge
truss that I've never seen before.  He invented the Fink truss, but this
isn't that - it's called the Bollman Truss.
