Colloquium: Structural Codes-Today and Tomorrow BS 8110: Structural Use of Concrete

BS 8110 replaces CP 110: 1972. The fields of structural concrete covered by the two Codes are identical: reinforced and prestressed, in situ and precast. The BS reference is rather misleading and is to be regretted since BS 8110 is a Code of Practice and not a Standard. There are no major changes in principle from the earlier edition, but the text has largely been rewritten with alterations in the order and arrangement of topics. The redrafting and alterations have been made in the light of experience of the practical convenience of using CP 110: 1972. D.D. Matthews
