Eurocode 3 covers many forms of steel construction and provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date set of design guidance currently available. Throughout, this book concentrates on the most commonly encountered aspects of structural steel design, with an emphasis on the situation in buildings. Much of its content is therefore devoted to the provisions of the Part 1.1: General rules and rules for buildings of EN 1993. This is, however, supplemented by material of loading, joints and cold-formed design. For each of the principal aspects covered, the book provides background to the structural behaviour, explanation of the codified treatment, and numerous worked examples. This Guide should serve as the primary point of reference for designing steel structures to Eurocode 3.
