AISC 360-10 manual

Information presented on this page is intended to demonstrate the section design convergence that can be achived with SkyCiv. All examples are taken from the Steel Structures Design Manual To AS 4100 (authors Brian Kirke, Iyad Hassan Al-Jamel). Current manual consists description of algorithm of manual calculations.
