Book Review by Steven Smith
I knew it would be a great reference book to own
My first introduction to Jack McCormac, the author, was through his publication of Structural Steel Design back in about 1976 during my college years toward becoming a professional structural engineer. When I saw this book to refresh and reinforce my structural steel design basics to updated codes, I had to buy it especially when I saw it was by Jack McCormac. I knew it would be a great reference book to own.
