About the Book: Limit State Design of Steel Structures
Method of Limit State (Ultimate Limit State, (ULS) andserviceability limit state (SLS)) present an improved designphilosophy and makes allow-ance for the short-compings of workingstress method (conventional and long time used in practice). Thismethod provides basic framework, within which the performance ofthe steel structures may be assessed against various limitingconditions and invo-lves some concept of probability.
Object of limit design method is to get steel structure thatwill remain fit for use during its life with acceptable targetreliability. The probability of a limit state being reached duringits life time is kept very small.
This method has been broadly adopted in many developed countriesand based on the recommendations of IS: 800-2007 (Third RevisedEdition). This method has been covered in nine parts (in twenty sixchapters and four appendices) as listed in contents. Afterintroducing Limit State Method of Design of Concrete Structures(LSD: CC) in IS: 456-1978, it was natural for Bureau of IndianStandard to introduce Limit State Design of Steel Structures (LSD:SS).
SI units for text for complete book, uncertainties involved inthe working stress method and the concept of partial safety factorsfor the loads and strength of mate-rials (for yield and ultimatestresses reached) are the special feature of the book.
Concepts of shear centre for thin-walled beam cross-sections andunsymmetrical bending of beams are important for variousrequirements and have been included in appendices.
The text of book has been covered in about 1000 pages and 550diagrams.
The texts of various topics has been explained in manyillustrative worked-out examples.

He got his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Roorkee, (Indian Institute of Technology) Roorkee in 1984. Joined as Lecturer in Civil Engineering M.B.M. Engineering College, Jodhpur in December 1961. Selected as reader in Structural Engineering in August, 1965 and became Professor and Head of Department in Structural Engineering in 1984 and 1990.
Dr. Chandra has published two papers in International Journal (ASCE, New York) in April, 1990. Three papers in National Journals (Institution of Engineers, India), July 1971 and Indian Engineer June, 1970 and August, 1970. Six papers in Conferences/National Seminars (two-papers at Roorkee, 1979 and 1993) one paper at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi 1984 and three papers at J.N.V. University, Jodhpur (2002, 2005).
Dr. Chandra is the author of six reputed books being studied and referred by students, teachers, research scholars and design engineers alike not only through-out India but in foreign countries also. He has taught various subjects of Civil Engineering specially Steel Structures, Concrete Structures, Computer Programming and Engineering Mechanics to the students of graduate and post-graduate studies.
