Steel structures consist of beams, columns, base plates, anchor bolts, bracing members, crane gantry girders, plate girders, stairs, ladders, hand rails, floor grills, step treads and their connections. Steel rolled shapes (or) plates are used to fabricate these structural components.
They are connected by welding (or) bolting to transfer the load from one member to another. This book provides:Layout with grid designations and wire diagrams of frames. Holding bolts for foundations. Coverage of all types of base plates, such as slab base and stiffened base. Welded and bolted connections between column and beam and beam to beam. Tables with all necessary details for beam cutting, number of bolts required, edge distance, and pitch. All chapters are structured in such a way as to how a steel structure is erected, and are oriented towards giving all details required for completion of fabrication drawings for every component.
