About this book

These are the proceedings of the International Conference on Design, Fabrication and Economy of Metal Structures held on 24-26 April 2013 in Miskolc, Hungary which contain 99 papers covering:

  • Structural optimization
  • Thin-walled structures
  • Stability
  • Fatigue
  • Frames
  • Fire
  • Fabrication
  • Welding technology
  • Applications
  • Steel-concrete composite
  • Special problems

The authors are from 23 different countries, ensuring that the themes covered are of worldwide interest and importance. The International Institute of Welding (IIW), the International Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO), the TÁMOP 4.2.1.B-10/2/KONV-2010-0001 project entitled “Increasing the quality of higher education through the development of research - development and innovation program at the University of Miskolc supported by the European Union, co-financed by the European Social Fund” and many other sponsors helped organizers to collect these valuable studies, the results of which will provoke discussion, and provide an important reference for civil and mechanical engineers, architects, researchers and structural designers and fabricators, as well as managers in a range of industries including building, transport, shipbuilding, aircraft, chemical and offshore engineering.

About the authors

Dr Károly Jármai is a professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Miskolc, where he graduated as a mechanical engineer and received his doctorate (dr.univ.) in 1979. He teaches design of steel structures, welded structures, composite structures and optimization in Hungarian and in the English language for foreign students. His research interests include structural optimization, mathematical programming techniques and expert systems. Dr. Jármai wrote his C.Sc. (Ph.D.) dissertation at the Hungarian Academy of Science in 1988, became a European Engineer (Eur. Ing. FEANI, Paris) in 1990 and did his habilitation (dr.habil.) at Miskolc in 1995. Having successfully defended his doctor of technical science thesis (D.Sc.) in 1995, he subsequently received awards from the Engineering for Peace Foundation in 1997 and a scholarship as Széchenyi professor between the years 1997-2000. He is the co-author (with Farkas) of three books in English Analysis and Optimum Design of Metal Structures, Economic Design of Metal Structures, Design and optimization of metal structures and two monographs in Hungarian, and has published over 430 professional papers, lecture notes, textbook chapters and conference papers. He is a founding member of ISSMO (International Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization), a Hungarian delegate, vice chairman of commission XV and a subcommission chairman XV-F of IIW (International Institute of Welding). He has held several leading positions in GTE (Hungarian Scientific Society of Mechanical Engineers) and has been the president of this society at the University of Miskolc since 1991. He was a visiting researcher at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden in 1991, visiting professor at Osaka University in 1996-97, at the National University of Singapore in 1998 and at the University of Pretoria several times between 2000-2005.
