Load and Resistance Factor Design ofW-Shapes Encased in Concrete
Design Guide 6
contains more than 300pages of LRFD composite beam-columndesign strength values. In addition, athorough discussion of the use anddesign of composite columns is pre-sented, covering practical design consid-erations, fire resistance, longitudinal rein-forcing bar arrangement, ties,longitudinal reinforcing bar splices, con-nection of steel beams to encased wide-flange columns, shear connectors, baseplates, erection, and temporary wind bracing during composite frame con-struction.

Industrial Buildings, Roofs to ColumnAnchorage
Design Guide 7
addresses all facets ofindustrial building design and includes acomprehensive section on crane runwaydesign. Part I covers owner-establisheddesign criteria, roof systems, roof trusses,wall systems, framing schemes, bracingsystems, column anchorage, and service-ability criteria. Part II concentrates on thecomplete design of industrial buildingswith cranes and addresses fatigue, roof,wall, framing and bracing systems, cranerunway girder design, crane runway fab-rication/erection tolerances, and columndesign. Stepped column design is alsodiscussed. Asecond edition of
will be published later in 2005.
Design Guide 8:
Partially Restrained CompositeConnections
Based on extensive research domesti-cally and abroad,
Design Guide 8
intro-duces design criteria for designing withPR-CC connections. This approachaffords the designer the ability to econo-mize beam sizes for gravity loading or toresist lateral loads in unbraced frames.The guide contains several sections,including an introduction to PR-CC con-nections, covers analysis, moment-rota-tion curves, design procedures, andexamples. As a bonus, the appendix con-tains a short but detailed discussion ofstory sway calculations.
Design Guide 9:
Torsional Analysis of Structural SteelMembers
An excellent introduction to the con-cepts of torsion in open and closed cross-sections, this design guide facilitates calcu-lations of torsional stresses and establishes a basis for design. For open-sections such asW-shapes, the normal and shear stressesdue to both pure and warping torsion can be calculated using the guide. In addition,channel and Z-shaped open cross-sectionsare addressed, as well as closed cross-sec-tions such as rectangular and round HSSand steel pipe. Several examples and designcurves are included in the guide.
Design Guide 10:
Erection Bracing of Low-RiseStructural Steel Buildings
Design Guide 10
addresses both per-manent and temporary erection bracing,including an important chapter on con-struction phase loads. Topics addressedinclude column and column base (withextensive discussions of potential failuremodes, including fracture of fillet welds between the two, bending failure of baseplates, anchor rod rupture, buckling,pull, push-through, and push-out), dis-cussions of tie members, beam to columnconnections, and diaphragms. In addi-tion, wire rope diagonal bracing and con-nections are covered, as well as design ofdeadmen.

Floor Vibrations Due to Human Activity
Did you know that people in officesand residences do not like distinctly per-ceptible vibration, whereas people takingpart in an activity will accept vibrationsapproximately 10 times greater?
has an entire chapter devoted tohuman response to floor motion, andaddresses both walking and rhythmicexcitations. There is also a chapter thataddresses design for the effects of vibra-tion on sensitive equipment. Special con-sideration for determining the naturalfrequency of open-web steel joists and joist girders is included. Several designexamples are given, including interioroffice bays, footbridges, and mezzanines.Remedial measures are discussed indetail.

Modification of Existing Welded SteelMoment Frames Connections forSeismic Design
Where would you look to find infor-mation for upgrading existing seismicmoment connections? Simple. FEMA351/352 and
Design Guide 12
. This designguide discusses strategies and solutionsfor the upgrade of existing pre-Northridgemoment connections, including retrofitsolutions with a welded haunch, bolted bracket, or reduced beam section (RBS).Based on experimental results, recommen-dations for modification of pre-North-ridge moment connections are presentedand discussed in detail. In addition, theguide discusses practical considerationsfor remedial work, such as removal andrestoration of building finishes.

Stiffening of Wide-Flange Columns atMoment Connections: Wind andSeismic Applications
Do you need guidance in designingcolumn stiffening for strong- and weak-axis moment connections?
contains this information and muchmore. The guide offers multiple exam-ples for the proper design of transversestiffeners, web doubler plates and diago-nal stiffeners. Detailed discussions areincluded on topics such as unreinforcedcolumns, stiffness considerations, forcetransfer and the economical selection ofcolumns. Also covered are detailing rec-ommendations for special cases, such ascolumn stiffening for beams of differingdepth and beam framing over columns.The appendix includes design recom-mendations for weak-axis moment con-nections, including research findings.

Staggered Truss Framing Systems
Originally developed in the 1960s,staggered truss framing continues to be acompetitive framing configuration formid-rise structures. Topics addressed in
Design Guide 14
include diaphragmaction using hollow-core precast plankfloor slabs and the design of truss mem- bers and connections in wind and low-seismic applications (
= 3). Specialtopics such as mechanical design consid-erations, plank leveling, erection, coordi-nation with subcontractors, foundationoverturning and sliding, and balconydesign are also covered.
