Technical Digest 2018
The steel construction sector’s annual
series of Technical Digests has proven
to be a popular addition to the flow of
information for architects and engineers
since its launch two years ago.
This is the third in the series of digests, and
along with the previous two is always available for
download at the steelconstruction.info website.
The steel construction sector has a longestablished
reputation for doing everything that
can be done to keep designers in steel up-to-date
with all the technical guidance needed to ensure
that they can take advantage of the numerous
benefits of steel as a construction material.
A comprehensive array of ways of accessing
this information ensures that guidance and
information is never more than a couple of clicks
away. Everything relevant to steel construction
including cost as well as design guidance, is freely
available on the steelconstruction.info website, the
free to use first port of call for technical support.
The BCSA’s monthly magazine New Steel
Construction (NSC) is another popular source of
advice, including the highly popular Advisory Desk
Notes and longer Technical Articles from the steel
sector’s own experts.
This Digest brings all the Advisory Desk
Notes and Technical Articles published in NSC
in 2018 together in a format that is available as
downloadable pdfs or for online viewing.
AD Notes keep designers abreast of
developments in technical standards. Some of
them are provided following questions being
asked of the sector’s technical advisers. They are
acknowledged as essential reading for all involved
in the design of constructional steelwork.
The more detailed Technical Articles offer
deeper insights into what designers need to know
to produce the best steel construction projects.
These articles can be initiated by legislative
changes or changes to codes and standards.
Occasionally a technical update will be provided
when it is felt that it would be useful if a lot of
relatively minor changes were brought together in
Both AD Notes and Technical Articles can
provide early warnings to designers of changes
that they need to know about and point towards
sources of further detailed information available
via the steel sector’s other advisory routes. We
hope you will continue to find this new publication
