Looking for an informative HSS resource? Check out the publications available from CIDECT, the international association of leading manufacturers of hollow sections and pipes, www.cidect.org. The organization, which is formally known as Comite International pour le Developpement et l’Etude de la Construction Tubulaire (International Committee for the Development and Study of Tubular Structures), is now offering the second edition of its Hollow Sections in Structural Applications as a free download. Authored by J. Wardenier, J.A. Packer, X.-L. Zhao and G. J. van der Vegte, this 240-page publication was published in 2010 and has only recently become available on the web. It provides technical information along with architectural examples and photographs. Nearly a hundred pages are dedicated to HSS joints of various types.
