After a long summer of extensive editing and additions, this site now as many upgrades. 
A newly updated version of the BG to the Steel Construction Manual is done! This now a viable text and will be available in hard copy by the end of August 2008.

There has also been additions to the BG to Structural Mechanics and Analysis.  Check it out.

The focus this fall will be to complete the rough draft of the BG to ASCE-7

Well... the academic season is over and time to get back to work on this site.  Please feel free to send suggestions for improvement as this is the time to implement them!  Note that new usage statistics have been posted on their own page.

Usage has been pretty steady.  It appears that there is quite a bit of interest in this topic from literally around the world. Unfortunately, the time available to work on this site will be limited until May. 

Plans for the summer include a refinement of the steel text, the first complete draft of the ASCE 7 text and some more sections for the structural mechanics segment. 

As always, we welcome corrections and suggestions for improvement.

There has been a lot of rearranging going on this week, but I think that we have settled on a workable format.  There should not be much reconfiguration in the near future.

We are now on-line with our new site and new URL!  We have great plans for more content as well.  All it takes is time (& money)!
