These two volumes of proceedings contain nine invited keynote papers and 130 contributed papers presented at the Third International Conference on Advances in Steel Structures (ICASS '02) held on 9-11 December 2002 in Hong Kong, China. The conference is a sequel to the First and the Second International Conferences on Advances in Steel Structures held in Hong Kong in December 1996 and 1999. The conference provides a forum for discussion and dissemination by researchers and designers of recent advances in the analysis, behaviour, design and construction of steel structures. Papers were contributed from over 18 countries around the world. They report current state-of-the art and point to future directions of structural steel research, covering a wide spectrum of topics including: beams and columns; connections; scaffolds and slender structures; cold-formed steel; composite construction; plates; shells; bridges; dynamics; impact mechanics; effects of welding; fatigue and fracture; fire performance; and analysis and design.

Internationally, code officials recognize the need for a modern, up-to-date building code addressing the design and installation of building systems through requirements emphasizing performance. The 2009 International Building Code® (IBC®) is designed to meet those needs through model code regulations that safeguard the public health and safety in all communities, large and small. This comprehensive code establishes minimum regulations for building systems using prescriptive and performance-based provisions. It is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of alternate materials as well as new, improved design methodologies. The changes in the structural provisions of the 2009 IBC when compared to previous editions of the IBC and legacy codes (Uniform Building Code, National Building Code, Standard Building Code) create the need for a comprehensive work that discusses the changes and expands on many of the new or improved provisions. This book, the 2009 IBC Handbook—Structural Provisions, is intended to do just that. By helping code users understand and properly apply the structural provisions in Chapters 16 through 23 of the 2009 IBC, this handbook is a valuable resource for those who design, plan review, inspect or construct buildings or other structures regulated by the 2009 IBC. Although it will prove useful to a broad range of individuals, it was written primarily so that architects, engineers and code officials can understand the IBC’s provisions and gain insight into their underlying basis and intent. To that end, the handbook’s numerous figures, tables and examples help clarify and illustrate the proper application of many code provisions. One of the significant differences between the structural provisions in the UBC and the IBC is that the IBC adopts national (structural) standards by reference rather than transcribing the structural provisions of the standards into the code itself. This is true for structural loads as well as structural materials. This trend has continued with each subsequent edition of the IBC to the extent that the 2009 IBC relies on the referenced standards even more than the previous editions. Therefore, in many cases the discussion in this handbook pertains to the provisions in the referenced standard rather than the IBC itself. The 2009 IBC Handbook—Structural Provisions covers four major structural categories: 􀀍 Structural load effects and design provisions of Chapter 16 􀀍 Special inspection, structural testing and structural observation provisions of Chapter 17 􀀍 Foundation and soil provisions of Chapter 18 􀀍 Specific structural material provisions for concrete, masonry, steel and wood in Chapters 19 through 23 As an added benefit to readers, ICC has included a CD-ROM containing the complete structural handbook as well as a variety of helpful resource documents such as 2003 NEHRP Recommended Provisions for Seismic Regulations for New Buildings and Other Structures with Accompanying Commentary (FEMA 450, Parts 1 and 2), NEHRP Recommended Provisions: Design Examples (FEMA 451), NEHRP Recommended Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures: Training and Instructional Materials (FEMA 451B), Seismic Considerations for Steel Storage Racks Located in Areas Accessible to the Public (FEMA 460), Homebuilders’ Guide to Earthquake-Resistant 􀀶􀁗􀁕􀁘􀁆􀁗􀁘􀁕􀁄􀁏 􀀳􀁕􀁒􀁙􀁌􀁖􀁌􀁒􀁑􀁖 􀁌􀁌􀁌 Preface Design and Construction (FEMA 232), Communicating with Owners and Managers of New Buildings on Earthquake Risk: A Primer for Design Professionals (FEMA 389), Designing for Earthquakes: A Manual for Architects (FEMA 454) and CodeMaster—2006 IBC Seismic Design—2006 IBC, 2003 NEHRP, ASCE 7-05. 􀁌􀁙 􀀕􀀓􀀓􀀜 􀀬􀀥􀀦 􀀫􀁄􀁑􀁇􀁅􀁒􀁒􀁎 About the International Code Council The International Code Council® (ICC®) is a nonprofit membership association dedicated to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of people by creating better buildings and safer communities.

The building shell is the interface with the outside world, it offers protection and at the same time represents its owners or occupants. But what are the criteria for choosing a specific shell? Why is a particular material used on a particular undercoat? The fifth volume of the SCALE series, Enclose | Build, is not about the curtain, the dressing of the facade that surrounds a building, but rather on a causal level about the exterior termination of a building, the wall, the facade, which can be made of various materials, surfaces, and achieves different design effects. It shows the conditions under which certain constructions can be employed and why; what criteria such as construction costs, issues of sustainability, of energy efficiency, of assembly or of insulation or protection against moisture can also influence the choice of a system. In addition to classical constructions, Enclose | Build offers a look at future developments. How will the facade evolve as an interface for information? What do viable concepts for environmentally active, energy-efficient building shells look like? Enclose | Build is an indispensable tool for every architect and planner.

Understanding Steel Design is based on an overall approach to understand how to design and build with steel from the perspective of its architectural applications. Steel is a material whose qualities have enormous potential for the creation of dynamic architecture. In an innovative approach to the reality of working with steel, the book takes a new look both at the state of tried-and-tested techniques and at emerging projects. Hundreds of steel structures have been observed, analyzed and appraised for this book. In-depth construction photographs by the author are complemented by technical illustrations created to look more closely at systems and details. Drawings supplied by fabricators allow greater insight into a method of working with current digital drawing tools.
