Structural Design of Steel work to EN 1993 and EN 1994 Third version by L.H. Martin and J.A. Purkiss



This guide conforms to the newest suggestions for the design of metal and composite metal–concrete constructions as described in Eurocode 3: Design of metal constructions and Eurocode 4: Design of composite metal concrete constructions. References to related clauses of the Codes are given the place applicable. Be aware that for regular steelwork design, together with joints, three sections of EN 1993 are required:

• Half 1–1 Common guidelines and guidelines for buildings.

• Half 1–5 Plated structural parts.

• Half 1–8 Design of joints.

Moreover if design for chilly shaped sections is carried out from first ideas then Half 1–3 Chilly shaped skinny gauge members and sheeting can be required. While it has not been assumed that the reader has a information of structural design, a information of structural mechanics and stress evaluation is a prerequisite. Nonetheless, as famous beneath sure specialist areas of evaluation have been lined intimately because the Codes don’t present the requisite data.


Thus the guide accommodates detailed explanations of the ideas underlying steelwork design and offers applicable references and solutions for additional studying. The textual content ought to show helpful to college students studying for engineering levels at College, particularly for design initiatives. It would additionally help designers who require an introduction to the brand new Eurocodes.

For these conversant in present follow, the main adjustments are:

(1) There’s want to refer to a couple of half of the varied codes with calculations usually changing into extra intensive and complicated.

(2) Steelwork design stresses are elevated because the gamma values on metal are taken as 1,0, and the energy of excessive yield reinforcement is 500 MPa albeit with a gamma issue of 1,15.

(3) A deeper understanding of buckling phenomena is required because the Codes don’t provide the related formulae.

(4) Flexure and axial pressure interplay equations are extra complicated, thus growing the calculations for column design.


(5) The checking of webs for in-plane forces is extra complicated.

(6) Though pressure area idea (or its equal) could also be used for plate girders, the calculations are simplified in contrast to earlier variations of the Code.

(7) Joints are required to be designed for each energy and stiffness.

(8) Extra complete data is given on thin-walled sections.


Lawrence Martin and John Purkiss would love to thank Lengthy-yuan Li and Xiao-ting Chu for writing Chapter 11 on Chilly-formed metal sections. The second writer would love to thank Andrew Orton (Corus) for assist with issues over limiting vital lengths for lateral–torsional buckling of rolled sections. The authors additional want to thank the next for permission to reproduce materials:

• Albion Sections Ltd for Fig. 11.1

• www.access-steel.com for Figs 11.24 and 11.25

• Karoly Zalka and the Establishment of Civil Engineers for Fig. 8.13
