Tubular Structures XIII contains the latest scientific and engineering developments in the field of tubular steel structures, as presented at the 13th International Symposium on Tubular Structures (ISTS13), Hong Kong, 15 – 17 December 2010. The International Symposium on Tubular Structures (ISTS) has a longstanding reputation for being the principal showcase for manufactured tubing and the prime international forum for discussion of research, developments and applications in this field. The Symposium presentations herein include one invited ISTS Kurobane Lecture together with all the technical papers.

Various key and emerging subjects in the field of hollow structural sections are covered, such as: special applications and case studies, static and fatigue behaviour of connections/joints, concrete-fi lled and composite tubular members and offshore structures, stainless steel and aluminium structures, earthquake and dynamic resistance, specifi cation and standard developments, material properties and structural reliability, impact resistance and brittle fracture, fi re resistance, casting and fabrication innovations. Research and development issues presented in this book are applicable to buildings, bridges, offshore structures, entertainment rides, cranes, towers and various mechanical and agricultural equipment.

Tubular Structures XIII is thus a pertinent reference source for architects, civil and mechanical engineers, designers, steel fabricators and contractors, manufacturers of hollow sections or related construction products, trade associations involved with tubing, owners or developers of tubular structures, steel specification committees, academics and research students all around the world.
