Latest guide for Eurocode load combinations
The BCSA has published a design guide which fully explains the Eurocode load combinations for steel structures based on the recommendations given in BS EN 1990 ‘Eurocode – Basis of Structural Design’ and BS EN 1991 ‘Eurocode 1 – Actions on Structures’.
The new guide is entitled ‘Eurocode Load Combinations for Steel Structures’, and its principal aim is to provide straightforward and easily digested guidance on the loading and load combinations for both serviceability and ultimate limit states.
The following building types are covered in the guide: multi-storey buildings – simple construction; multi-storey buildings – continuous construction; portal frames without cranes, and portal frames with cranes.
