Joints in steel construction. Moment-resisting joints to Eurocode 3 "The Green Book" (P398)

This publication covers the design of moment-resisting joints in accordance with Eurocode 3. Moment-resisting joints are typically found in portal frames and in continuous construction. This publication is the successor to Joints in steel construction – Moment connections (P207/95), which covers connections designed in accordance with BS 5950. (Published November 2013)
£80.00

Joints in steel construction. Simple connections - (In accordance with BS5950-1:2000) Reprinted edition (P212)

This publication provides design guidance for structural steelwork connections for use in buildings designed by the "Simple Method". This publication is another in the series of "Green Books" that cover a range of steelwork connections. (Published 2002)
£70.00

Light steel framing in residential construction (P402)

This publication is an update to an earlier SCI guide on the use of light steel framing in residential construction. It has been updated to reflect the latest design standards and building regulations, and current construction methods. The guidance addresses all the criteria that need to be considered and explains how these can be achieved with light steel framing.

Resistance of beams & columns in fire: Worked examples to the Eurocodes (P403)

Resistance of members at elevated temperature (in fire conditions) is a key component of structural design. The Eurocodes describe how resistances may be calculated, including simple methods which are readily applied to common structural forms. SCI has published new design guidance in P403 covering the resistance of beams and columns in Fire. This publication presents two numerical worked examples demonstrating the calculation of the critical temperature and resistance at elevated temperature. The examples cover both unprotected and protected solutions, using the simple calculation methods given in the Eurocodes.

Steel building design: Design data - Universal Column resistances in S460M steel (P404)

This new publication presents design data for Universal Column sections in S460 steel, derived in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-1 and its National Annex. The publication was developed to facilitate the design of columns in simple construction, providing compression and bending resistances in look-up format.
£30.00

Steel building design: Design data "Eurocode Blue Book" (P363)

The "Blue Book" is the essential aid for the design of steelwork. Comprehensive tables of member resistances are given for S275 and S355 steel. Republished June 2013; reprinted 2015. Please see details for more information.

Minimum degree of shear connection rules for UK construction to Eurocode 4 - Available in PDF format only. (P405)

Composite construction has played a major role in the commercial success of the steel construction sector in the UK. However, changes to profiled steel decking over the past decade have had the adverse effect of reducing shear stud resistances in some common situations. Extensive research in this area has led to this new (electronic only) publication. The rules for shear stud resistance and minimum degree of connection, complement those given in Eurocode 4. In so doing they will enable valid designs to be produced for a broader range of beams. FREE TO SCI MEMBERS. AVAILABLE IN PDF FORMAT ONLY

Joints in steel construction. Simple joints to Eurocode 3 - "The Green Book" (P358)

This publication is one of a series of “Green Books” that cover a range of steelwork connections. This publication provides guidance for nominally pinned joints (the most common joint type in steel building structures) that primarily carry vertical shear and, as an accidental limit state, tying forces. (Published 2011). NOTE: The tables in pages T-42, T-43, T-44, T-50, T-51 and T-52 of the first printing of November 2011 contained incorrect values of tying resistance; see the full description for further details.
