to Light Gauge Metal Structures -- Peculiar Problems in Cold-formed Steel Design Part 1 -- Recent Advances and Progress in Design Codes: Instability Problems -- Recent Advances and Progress in Design Codes: Connections -- Stainless Steel Structures -- High Strength Steel Structures -- Residential Buildings -- Industrial and Non-residential Buildings -- 9: Pallet Racking.
The aim of this book is to review recent research and technical advances, including the progress in design codes, related to the engineering applications of light gauge metal sections made in carbon, high strength and stainless steel, as well as aluminium alloys. Included is a review of the new technologies for connections of light gauge metal members. Main advanced applications, for residential, non residential and industrial buildings and pallet rack systems are also covered. For the first time, this book takes into account all the metallic materials now used more and more for structural components. The book will be of great interest not only for researchers but also for design engineers faced to the use of new metallic materials in modern structural applications.
