Steel and tubular structure is increasingly being employed to produce innovative and spectacular architectural designs with complex geometrical profiles. This is made possible with the advancement in design expertise, metallurgy research, fabrication technology and erection technique, and more importantly, the close cooperation and commitment of architects, engineers, suppliers, fabricators and erectors, sharing knowledge and working as a team to ensure successful transformation of an innovative design to a successful completed project of architectural and structural marvel.
This three-volume book constitutes the reviewed papers and aims to register the latest achievements on innovation and advances in steel and composite construction from various parts of the world.
