This publication covers the design of moment-resisting joints in accordance with Eurocode 3. Moment-resisting joints are typically found in portal frames and in continuous construction. This publication is the successor to Joints in steel construction – Moment connections (P207/95), which covers connections designed in accordance with BS 5950. (Published November 2013)
This is a design Guide to the detailing of exposed steelwork in buildings. It offers architects a broad appreciation of the factors leading to the selection of the structure and its details.
Technical guidance is given, general principles outlined and examples of best practice are provided. This publication covers all aspects from manufacture to detailing, specification of finishes and fabrication, providing architects as well as engineers with essential information to inform the design.
This new publication takes the previously published SCI guidance provided in Design of Composite Beams using Precast Concrete Slabs (P287) 2003 based on BS 5950-3:1990 and presents updated guidance in accordance with the principles of Eurocode 4, supplemented by non-contradictory complementary information (NCCI).
The National Structural Steelwork Specification for Building Construction is presented here in its 5th Edition CE Marking Version. This version of the 5th Edition does not supersede the earlier version which remains current for applications where CE Marking is not required. (Published 2010)
This new publication presents design data for Universal Column sections in S460
steel, derived in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-1 and its National Annex. The publication was developed to facilitate the design of columns in simple construction, providing compression and bending resistances in look-up format.
This publication has been prepared to guide structural engineers through the process of establishing design wind actions for orthodox steel framed buildings in the UK, in accordance with the Eurocodes, UK National Annexes and other authoritative information. The calculation procedure to determine design wind actions is set out in Sections 5 and 6 and is demonstrated in a numerical example in Sections 9 and 10.
Resistance to torsion, usually in conjunction with bending, is a design situation where designers welcome guidance. This publication explains the basic behaviour of beams in torsion and provides formulae and graphs for evaluating the effects of torsion. (Published 2011)
Steel portal frames are firmly established in the UK as a lightweight, highly efficient and cost effective
way of enclosing usable volumes, accounting for the majority of the single storey
market. This publication provides guidance on the design of portal frames in accordance with
the Eurocodes, making recommendations where the design Standard is unclear.
This technical report was prepared to offer guidance on the selection of steel sub-grade, in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-10, the associated UK National Annex and other non-contradictory complementary information.
This publication provides a set of clauses, to be used in bridge project specifications, that responds to the options and alternatives allowed in BS EN 1090-2, the execution standard for steelwork designed to Eurocode 3. The clauses are arranged under the headings in BS EN 1090-2 and for each clause a commentary is given, explaining the context of or background to the clause.

This publication provides design guidance for hot rolled steel framed buildings on the Eurocode strategies for structural robustness and designing for the avoidance of disproportionate collapse as required by the UK Building Regulations. (Published 2011)
The "Blue Book" is the essential aid for the design of steelwork. Comprehensive tables of member resistances are given for S275 and S355 steel. Republished June 2013; reprinted 2015. Please see details for more information.
This publication is one of a series of “Green Books” that cover a range of steelwork connections. This publication provides guidance for nominally pinned joints (the most common joint type in steel building structures) that primarily carry vertical shear and, as an accidental limit state, tying forces. (Published 2011). NOTE: The tables in pages T-42, T-43, T-44, T-50, T-51 and T-52 of the first printing of November 2011 contained incorrect values of tying resistance; see the full description for further details.
This publication provides guidance on designing hot-rolled steel framed buildings to avoid disproportionate collapse. Consideration of disproportionate collapse is required for all buildings in order to satisfy Requirement A3 of Part A of the Building Regulations in England and Wales. (Published 2004)
This publication presents advice on the calculation of wind loads in accordance with BS 6399-2:1997. It describes the Standard and Hybrid Methods in the Code and introduces two further methods, termed the Simplified Standard Method and the Simplified Hybrid Method. (Published 2003)
This publication provides an introduction to the design of single-span steel portal frames, generally in accordance with BS 5950 1:2000 but also giving advice on practical aspects not previously covered in publications. (Published 1999)
The publication presents construction details and methods of design for slim floor construction comprising Slimflor fabricated beams, and in situ concrete acting compositely with the steel deep decking. (Published 1999)
