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.
