Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The aim of this ECSC research was to elaborate a simple but complete document to design commonly used buildings in steel construction. This document is completely based on Eurocode 3 and each paragraph totally conforms to Eurocode 3. Only the design formulas necessary to design braced or non-sway buildings are taken into account, tall buildings and halls are not treated. Designers and steel constructors are able to calculate and erect a commonly used steel building using this design handbook. The important load cases from Eurocode 1 are included.
