This e-book is concerned with design of cold-formed steel structures in building based on the Eurocode 3 package, particularly on EN 1993-1-3.
It contains the essentials of theoretical background and design rules for cold-formed steel sections and sheeting, members and connections for building applications.
Elaborated examples and design applications – more than 200 pages – are included in the respective chapters in order to provide a better understanding to the reader.
