Steel Building Design: Concise Eurocodes

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 provision in the UK National Annexes and appropriate non-contradictory complementary information.

This publication includes:

  • A brief review of the basis of structural design and guidance on the principal actions and combinations of action 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.
