This report describes the properties of steel and the criteria used to select appropriate steels to serve the intended needs. It presents a detailed evaluation of issues related to steel production, steel materials, design considerations, fabrication considerations, and service issues for structures whose major components are made from structural steel. Specific recommendations are made for how to deal with the large number of important factors that will affect the eventual performance of the completed structure.
