Limit State Design of Steel Structures

Ram Chandra (Author) Virendra Gehlot (Author)

Method of Limit State (Ultimate Limit State, (ULS) and serviceability limit state (SLS)) present an improved design philosophy and makes allow-ance for the short-compings of working stress method (conventional and long time used in practice). This method provides basic framework, within which the performance of the steel structures may be assessed against various limiting conditions and invo-lves some concept of probability.

Object of limit design method is to get steel structure that will remain fit for use during its life with acceptable target reliability. The probability of a limit state being reached during its life time is kept very small.

This method has been broadly adopted in many developed countries and based on the recommendations of IS: 800-2007 (Third Revised Edition). This method has been covered in nine parts (in twenty six chapters and four appendices) as listed in contents. After introducing `Limit State Method of Design of Concrete Structures (LSD: CC) in IS: 456-1978, it was natural for Bureau of Indian Standard to introduce `Limit State Design of Steel Structures (LSD: SS).

SI units for text for complete book, uncertainties involved in the working stress method and the concept of partial safety factors for the loads and strength of mate-rials (for yield and ultimate stresses reached) are the special feature of the book.

Concepts of shear centre for thin-walled beam cross-sections and unsymmetrical bending of beams are important for various requirements and have been included in appendices.

The text of book has been covered in about 1000 pages and 550 diagrams.

The texts of various topics has been explained in many illustrative worked-out examples.

Ram Chandra

Dr. Ram Chandra did his Graduation in Engineering from M.B.M. Engineering College, Jodhpur in 1959, and M.E. 1970 in Structural Engineering in Honours Division. He got his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Roorkee, (Indian Institute of Technology) Roorkee in 1984. Joined as Lecturer in Civil Engineering M.B.M. Engineering College, Jodhpur in December 1961. Selected as reader in Structural Engineering in August, 1965 and became Professor and Head of Department in Structural Engineering in 1984 and 1990.

Dr. Chandra has published two papers in International Journal (ASCE, New York) in April, 1990. Three papers in National Journals (Institution of Engineers, India), July 1971 and Indian Engineer June, 1970 and August, 1970. Six papers in Conferences/National Seminars (two-papers at Roorkee, 1979 and 1993) one paper at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi 1984 and three papers at J.N.V. University, Jodhpur (2002, 2005).

Dr. Chandra is the author of six reputed books being studied and referred by students, teachers, research scholars and design engineers alike not only through-out India but in foreign countries also. He has taught various subjects of Civil Engineering specially Steel Structres, Concrete Structures, Computer Programming and Engineering Mechanics to the students of graduate and post-graduate studies.
