Since the steel used in almost every situation in the construction industry, there is no single IS codebook to refer to structural steel design.

Their nature and production have been classified into many. So to design any structural members, you have to refer to the following IS Codes list. It will be useful for you to select the right material, load calculation & tolerance for structural steel design.
