BS 8118 The Structural Use of Aluminium

The new Code of Practice for the design of aluminium structures (BS 8118: Part I) and the new specification for materials, workmanship and protection (BS 8118: Part 2) were published in March 1992. The standard applies to most types of general engineering structure subjected to normal land or marine atmospheric conditions, such as bridges, buildings, towers, road and rail vehicles, marine craft, cranes and offshore topside structures. It does not apply to containment vessels, pipework, airborne structures or naval vessels, or to structures for which specific alternative Codes exist, such as pressure vessels (BS 5500) or lighting columns (BS 5649).
