Steel building design: Concise Eurocodes (P362)

This guide cuts through the apparent complexity of the Eurocodes for steel design, and provides the designer with a digestible approach to common tasks. (Published 2010).
SKU: P362
£50.00

This guide cuts through the apparent complexity of the Eurocodes for steel design, and provides the designer with a digestible approach to common tasks. Guidance is presented on design routes, with references to Eurocode clauses. Formulae are converted into look-up tables and design tips are highlighted.  The compilation includes the related provisions in the UK National Annexes and appropriate non-contradictory complementary information 

The publication includes:

  • A brief review of the basis of structural design and guidance on the principal actions and combinations of actions that need to be considered in orthodox building structures
  • Rules for global analysis, bending and axial resistance
  • Requirements for toughness against brittle fracture
  • Rules for simple bolted and welded connections
  • An outline of the rules for composite construction from Eurocode 4
  • Appendices giving guidance on selection of the most critical combination of actions, simplified expressions for interaction factors for combined bending and axial force, and a simplified approach for the lateral torsional buckling resistance of unrestrained lengths of beams.

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.
