Designing with the 14th edition - NEW August 2011

ISBN Number: 978-0-615-52132-9

This is the hard copy version of the popular web edition.  This book is 384 pages on 8.1/2" x 11" paper with a coil binding (for easy use).  The book was substantially upgraded during the summer of 2011 to include changes presented in the 14th edition of the AISC Steel Construction Manual.  Extensive editing also has made the book even more readable!

A Beginner's Guide to the Steel Construction Manual,
Designing with the 13th edition

This is the hard copy version of the popular web edition.  This book is 376 pages on 8.1/2" x 11" paper with a coil binding (for easy use).  The book was substantially upgraded during the summer of 2008 to include new sections on stiffener plates, continuous beam analysis, more example problems, and more.  While the 13th edition has been superseded by the 14th, we find that there are many people still using the SCM 13th edition making this text valuable until the codes catch up with the changes.

Sorry but this book is out
of print and sold out.
