I do not propose to go over the history of the Institution’s involvement with structural Codes-I briefly summarised this in my paper ‘Codes and standards in design and in regulation’ presented at the Institution’s Anniversary Conference in 1984. The Institution has been actively considering its present and future role, and efforts are being made to act on the conclusions that have been arrived at. Professor M.R. Horne

BS5950: Structural Use of Steelwork in Building

BS5950: Structural Use of Steelwork in Building

Almost all structural engineers in UK, and many others throughout the world, are very familiar with BS 449 The use of Structural steelwork in buildings. This has been the BS Code of Practice for the great bulk of structural steelwork in the building industry for some 40 years, during which time a number of amendments and updating have been introduced, including metrication. However, as with many old and familiar things time takes its toll; technical advances, many years of research work and practical experience, and developments in codification internationally, have all led to the inevitable need for a complete review and redrafting of our UK document.

BS 5628: Structural Use of Masonry

BS 5628: Structural Use of Masonry

Most structural engineers will have been familiar with CP111 Structural recommendations for loadbearing walls, first published in 1948, revised in 1964, and metricated in 1970. The Code was amended from time to time but was lacking in guidance in several important areas, e.g. the lateral strength of walls and accidental loading. It contained a very short section on reinforced brickwork walls which was not sufficient to enable the material to be used in an economical way. The workmanship, nonstructural design, and some materials aspects of masonry, were dealt with in CP121 Code of practice for walling: Part l: Brick and block masonry, published in 1951 and revised in 1973.
