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)
Steel portal frames are firmly established in the UK as a lightweight, highly efficient and cost effective

the Eurocodes, making recommendations where the design Standard is unclear.
