The Structural Stability Research Council assist guidance to practicing engineers and writers of design specifications, codes, and standards in both posing simplified and refined processes applicable to design and assessing their limitations. The main objectives of the Council have been to nurture research on the behavior of compressive components of metal structures and of structural systems and to assist in the development of enhanced design procedures.

This guide presents design of metal structure for building and bridge design. It offers complete coverage of seismic connection design; cold metal framing connection; partially restrained connections; steel decks; inspection and quality control; and much more.
Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures is a reference tool for consulting engineers, architects, building inspectors, and graduate students.
