"""Description:Hardbound. A significant amount of research has been undertaken in Japan over the last forty years on the difficult problems of the stability of steel and steel-and-concrete composites structures and their components. Based on this research, Japanese design engineers, fabricators and contractors have built some of the most daring and innovative modern structures in recent times. The aim of this book is to present the essence of this research to researchers and design engineers worldwide in the hope that it will contribute to the international study of steel structures. The book focuses not only on theory and computation but also on experimental verification. It includes topics such as ""Coupled Instability"", ""Cyclic Buckling and Impact Strength"" and ""Database for Steel Structures"" in which Japanese research has made particularly strong advances. The book commemorates the retirement of its editor and contributing author, Professor Fukumoto, from Osa"""
