Blue Book app and running
Tata Steel’s app for steel section properties and member capacities for design to BS5950 or EC3 can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store.
The app is an abridged version of the electronic Blue Book, giving users access to section property and member capacity information through iPhones, iPod and iPad.
Navigation is simple, as users can swipe seamlessly between properties and capacities. A simple tab at the bottom of the screen presents data to either BS5950 or EC3.
