For American code with LRFD design, you can refer the Schaum's outline series book,
"Structural steel design" by Abraham rokach.

It is available in our forum in the following link:

For LRFD,I like the book "Steel Structures. Design and Behavior" by Salmon & Johnson. Its a very complete book. I use it in my course.

How about for BS code?..Which text book is the best?.. Grin
For BS code, I would like to recommend "Structural steelwork, Design to limit state theory" – T J MacGinley & T C Ang. This book is also available in our forum. This book has presented the basic theory as well as a lot of example make it easy understanding.

How about the Australian Codes? Can anyone recommend any steel design books based on AS4100?
