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)

Handbook of structural steelwork - Eurocode edition (P201E)

This handbook gives a practical guide to the design of structural steel elements for buildings. It comprises three principal Sections: general guidance, general design data and design tables.

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.

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.

Steelwork design guide to BS 5950-1:2000 - Volume 2: Worked examples (P326)

This publication presents 23 worked examples of the design of structural members to BS 5950-1:2000. (Published 2003)

Introduction to steelwork design to BS 5950-1:2000 (P325)

This publication provides design guidance on the use of BS 5950-1:2000 for steel framed buildings. It gives background information to the Code and covers the design of typical structural forms and their components. (Published 2003)

Guide to the major amendments in BS 5950-1.2000 (P304)

This publication provides information suitable for use by all parties at the design and specification stage of modular construction in residential buildings. (Published 2001)

Guide to evaluating design wind load to BS 6399-2.1997 (P286)

This publication presents advice on the calculation of wind loads in accordance with BS 6399-2:1997. It describes the Standard and Hybrid Methods in the Code and introduces two further methods, termed the Simplified Standard Method and the Simplified Hybrid Method. (Published 2003)

Design of single span steel portal frames to BS 5950-1:2000 (P252)

This publication provides an introduction to the design of single-span steel portal frames, generally in accordance with BS 5950 1:2000 but also giving advice on practical aspects not previously covered in publications. (Published 1999)

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)

Steelwork design guide to BS 5950-1:2000 - Volume 1: Section properties & member capacities. 7th edition "The Blue Book" (P202)

The 7th Edition of the Blue book gives a comprehensive range of member property and capacity tables in accordance with BS 5950-1: 2000. (Published 2002)

Handbook of structural steelwork - 4th Edition (P201)

This handbook gives practical design advice, worked examples, section properties and member capacities. (Published 2007)

Designing for structural fire safety. A handbook for architects and engineers (P197)

This publication provides basic information necessary to assist an architect or engineer to understand the principles of design for fire resistant steel structures and the terminology used. (Published 1999)
