Elements within a steel frame structure are at risk of buckling under load.
If measures are not taken when designing steel elements that recognise this risk, then the likelihood of its failure is significantly increased. This Technical Guidance Note explains how steel elements are restrained against buckling and what the structural engineer should consider when analysing steel structures with respect to buckling resistance.

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 17): Element size estimation

Once the concept and scheme design has been determined, initial sizing of elements commences. This note shows how to size elements, prior to detailed design. This process allows the engineer to gain an appreciation of structural form.

<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 5): Derivation of snow load</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 5): Derivation of snow load

There are several variations and conditions the designer must be aware of when determining snow loads onto structures. Based on Eurocode 1: Actions on Structures Part 1-3; General Actions – Snow Loads this note draws on the UK National Annex as it makes reference to projected snow falls that are typical in the UK. Updated October 2016.
