third edition (current to 2005 MSJC, I believe) of Drysdale, et al should be
coming out soon. I need to ask about that some time.
I am sure many of you are familiar with the book
"Masonry Structures: Behaviour and Design" by Drysdale, Hamid and Baker, published by The Masonry
Society. In my opinion, one of the best structural engineering books out
there. Despite beign very complete and thorough, it is clearly explained and
easy to understand. Ideal for an undergrad or graduate course in masonry
structural design. Or just to learn masonry on your own.
those of you familiar with this book, I'd like to ask if you can recommend
something similar for steel design. Hopefully based on the 13th edition of the
AISC manual, but if not, it doesn't matter as long as it includes LRFD. I just
want a good book that covers all topics in a clear manner with lots of
P.S. I know there have
been threads with this topic in thye past, so I apologize for not paying
attention to them. :-)
