Practical and easy to use, this text lays a solid groundwork for beginning and intermediate students to pursue careers in architecture, construction, or civil engineering. The text clarifies the vital interdependence between structural steel design and fabrication drawings, equipping students to work flexibly with both. First and foremost a drafting book, Structural Steel Drafting gives an overview of structural design theory while providing numerous examples, illustrations, and real-world assignments. Students also become acquainted with critical tables and reference material from industry-standard sources, as well as the merits of Load and Resistance Factor Design and Allowable Strength Design.

Dr. Hector Estrada is currently professor and chair of the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of the Pacific. He has published on structural engineering and engineering education in various peer-reviewed journals, conference proceedings, and presented research work at various technical conferences. He has served as reviewer for a number of journals (including the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering and ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics), conferences, book publishers, and funding agencies. His past and current service includes membership in several national ASCE and ASME committees.
