BS5950, the design code for structural steel, has been substantially revised. This timely book introduces design engineers to the use of BS5950 and gives the necessary information for them to be able to carry out satisfactory design for steel structures covered in the standard. This includes some guidance on loading and where further information may be obtained. The book discusses various clauses in BS5950 in the light of the basic theory and gives the necessary background information to ensure a good understanding of the document. Worked examples are supplied to enable the reader to follow the code and ensure that all critical design checks are properly understood. Great care has been taken in the technical exposition and practical illustrations of the material presented. Theory if immediately followed by worked examples for the sake of better and clearer understanding.For standard portal frames, the positions of the plastic hinges can be determined in advance. ... The easiest way to do this is to draw a moment diagram of the frame, in order to ensure that premature failure will not occur; the value of M/Mpanbsp;...
