ASI Technical Notes

The ASI Technical Notes series is an authoritative set of reference articles on steel design issues. They will periodically be supplemented by new Technical Notes to form a valuable reference tool for all Australian steel design professionals. The Notes deal with many of the everyday technical issues associated with the design of structural steel.
