A Commentary on the new British Standard 449 (1959) The Use of Structural Steel in Building

The Fourth revision of the British Standard 449 “The Use of Structural Steel in Building” was published by authority of the General Council of the British Standards Institution on 27th May, 1959. This commentary is intended to draw attention to some of the major alterations that have been made and to give reasons therefor. It is not designed to be a detailed comparison on the two documents clause for clause. Such a comparison written by Mr. Lewis E. Kent has been published by the British Steelwork Association and should be consulted for this purpose. John Mason
