SCI Publications

SCI's high quality publications continue to be used as the definitive guidance within the sector. SCI is focussed on providing the latest and best information to ensure best practice is maintained across every aspect of steel construction.

SCI's Eurocode publications featuring realistic design situations and templates give practical advice on designing to the Eurocodes. The range of publications includes a concise guide, an introduction to the Eurocodes, tabulated design data (The Bluebook) and a series of comprehensive design guides covering both buildings and bridges.

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)

Architectural design in steel (P190)

This is a design Guide to the detailing of exposed steelwork in buildings. It offers architects a broad appreciation of the factors leading to the selection of the structure and its details. Technical guidance is given, general principles outlined and examples of best practice are provided. This publication covers all aspects from manufacture to detailing, specification of finishes and fabrication, providing architects as well as engineers with essential information to inform the design.

Design of composite beams using precast concrete slabs in accordance with Eurocode 4 (P401)

This new publication takes the previously published SCI guidance provided in Design of Composite Beams using Precast Concrete Slabs (P287) 2003 based on BS 5950-3:1990 and presents updated guidance in accordance with the principles of Eurocode 4, supplemented by non-contradictory complementary information (NCCI).

Elastic design of single span steel portal frame buildings to Eurocode 3 (P397)

Steel portal frames are firmly established in the UK as a lightweight, highly efficient and cost effective way of enclosing usable volumes, accounting for the majority of the single storey market. This publication provides guidance on the design of portal frames in accordance with the Eurocodes, making recommendations where the design Standard is unclear.

Steel Bridge Group: Model project specification for the execution of steelwork in bridge structures (P382)

This publication provides a set of clauses, to be used in bridge project specifications, that responds to the options and alternatives allowed in BS EN 1090-2, the execution standard for steelwork designed to Eurocode 3. The clauses are arranged under the headings in BS EN 1090-2 and for each clause a commentary is given, explaining the context of or background to the clause.

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.
