Fabrication and Erection

Designers of steel-framed structures should be familiar not only with strength and serviceability requirements for the structures but also with fabrication and erection methods. These may determine whether a design is practical and cost-efficient. Furthermore, load capacity and stability of a structure may depend on design assumptions made as to type and magnitude of stresses and strains induced during fabrication and erection.
