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).
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.
