Blue Book available as free app
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.
Section properties are available for the full range of Tata Steel profiles, which can be sorted by depth, weight, plastic section modulus or inertia. Member capacities are available for UKBs, UKCs and UKPFCs for effective lengths of 2m, 4m, 6m, 8m or 10m and can be sorted by buckling resistance moment or compression resistance.
Navigation is simple, as users can to swipe seamlessly between properties and capacities. A simple tab at the bottom of the screen presents data to either BS5950 or EC3.
The app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store.
