Changes to Standards on Imposed Loads for Buildings

In the autumn of 1996, amended British Standards and new Eurocode Drafts for Development were issued on the subjects of dead loads (self-weight) and imposed loads for buildings. This paper presents the principal changes to the British Standards and discusses briefly the approach adopted in the development of national guidance for the European prestandards. D.M. Currie
