Dear Friends,

I need the cost which is paid for steel structures per metric tone including:

1- The cost of steel,
2- The cost of fabrication and one coat primer,
3- The cost of erection.

I have these for Iran, and I need it for where you live, especially North & South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

I will be so happy if anyone can help me for this study.

An Introduction to Design for Civil Engineers is a concise book that provides the reader with the necessary background on terminology used in design. With this book as a guide, entry-level students of civil engineering will better understand from the outset lectures on detailed subject areas.
Drawing on a wealth of experience, the authors present a largely qualitative treatment of the subject matter with little mathematics. Descriptions are amplified with numerous illustrations.
This book will be a useful aid for entry-level students of civil engineering and related disciplines such as structural engineering, building engineering and architecture. It will also prove beneficial for newly qualified professionals and others who want a concise guide to everyday design technology.
