This new, fifth edition of an extremely popular textbook continues in its tradition of presenting design procedures using a simple language, neat sketches and abundant solved problems. This book is aimed at training the students in using IS:800–2007 for designing steel structures using the limit state method. The author has explained the provisions of code in a simple language and illustrated the design procedure with a large number of worked out problems.
What is new in this edition?
• Two new chapters, Design of Beam Columns, and Plastic Analysis of Beams and Frames
• Limit state method and working stress method compared by the aid of solving the same problems using both methods
• Additional solved problems and rewriting of text throughout the text, to make the treatment more lucid
- Principles of Limit State Design
- Bolted Connections
- Welded Connections

• Around 100 full-length numerical problems, with detailed worked out solutions. Comprehensive chapter-end exercises for practice by students.
• Every chapter contains the relevant design principles and the design procedures at appropriate depth. All the scenarios and cases have been highlighted appropriately.
• Well-laid out labelled line diagrams for every conceivable topic of discussion or numerical problem.
• Relevant tables related to tensile and compressive stresses; load limits, deflection limits and factors of safety; and properties of standard steel sections are given in SI units.
