New Steel Construction Technical Digest now available online
New Steel Construction’s (NSC) seventh Technical Digest, which brings together a year’s worth of technical guidance, is now available for download at: www.steelconstruction.info
Helping to keep engineers and architects up-to-date with the latest steel construction related guidance, NSC’s Digest compiles all the magazine’s Technical Articles and Advisory Desk Notes from 2022, which can be downloaded as a pdf or viewed online.
Advisory Desk Notes reflect recent developments in technical standards or new knowledge that designers need to be made aware of. Some of them arise because a question is being frequently asked of the steel sector’s technical advisers. They have always been recognised as essential reading for all involved in the design of constructional steelwork.
The longer Technical Articles cover more detailed insights into what designers need to know, often the result of legislative changes or changes to codes and standards.
Technical updates will occasionally be provided following a number of relatively minor changes, perhaps made over a period of time, that it is felt could usefully be brought together in one place.
Some of the topics covered in last year’s Technical Articles include: Wind actions on single storey buildings; Portal frames with flexible joints using Kleinlogel-type formulae; The use of semi-continuous joints to reduce steel weight and cost; Proposed changes to assessment of frame stability; Design of angles and Bolted connections to hollow sections and column webs.
