The latest edition provides resistances in accordance with the UK version of Eurocode 3 part [1] , part [2] , and part [3] together with their relevant UK National Annexes [4] [5] [6]. Click here to download SCI P An interactive version of the "Blue Book" is also available that includes design information in accordance with the relevant parts of both the Eurocodes and BS Produced by the SCI on behalf of Steel for Life, this comprehensive web-hosted eBlue Book covers the full range of both open sections and hollow sections both hot finished and cold formed , and will not require any software to be installed on the host computer.

Tables are provided for both S and S grades for open sections, S and S grades for hot-finished hollow sections, and S grade for cold-formed hollow sections.

Comprehensive design data is also provided for bolts and welds, rolling tolerances are given, and there are comprehensive sets of explanatory notes for both the Eurocodes and BS data. Navigation menu Home. Ranging to heights of between 12m and 30m above ground level and only mm thick.

This concrete envelope is raised 2,4 m off the ground level with eccentric steel stilt supports. The two lift structures comprise a structural steel frame, independent of the lateral stability. The building frame does not obtain its lateral stability from a conventional uninterrupted RC shear wall system or lift core structures, but rather through a combination of: a.

Internal steel staircases hanging from roof beams via hot-rolled steel elements. Structural Steel Sub-frame to Curtain Wall. Additional information about the use of steel in the building Although the primary mass of the building consists of a concrete shell, it was always envisaged that this would need to be supported by steel to allow the mass to float lightly and enable visual connectivity from the ground floor to the campus on all four sides.

Throughout the structural design of the building, steel was used to contrast against the heaviness of the concrete shell and enable almost impossible transfer of structural loads and bracing across the void between the floor plates and the shell to the ground.

The attached images show these drak painted steel props, columns and A-frame braces. Likewise the eccentric load of the external concrete stairs are hung from the external envelope and structure behind with very light steel elements. Internally the vertical circulation located in the void consists of steel suspended staircases and steel framed lift shafts with steel mesh cladding. The design of the connections between the concrete and steel were complex and highly detailed to ensure the bonding of the concrete to the steel cast-in items.

To maximise the feeling of lightness the steel sizes had to be limited and the detailing and implementation of the welds was therefore very critical. There was a great level of co-ordination between the steel and the concrete during the construction of the building.

It was a highly collaborative process between the professional team and the contractors to enable optimum resolution of technical aspects as well as implementational challenges. In turn the contractor had a strong relationship with the steel manufacturer and installer, with whom they had previously worked.

All contracts were undertaken under the NEC suite. Expanded mesh was also used to clad large [5,4m high] bespoke steel framed acoustic in-filled sliding doors to provide flexible arrangements around the in-formal auditorium as well as smaller scaled privacy and acoustic screens in the flexible study areas.

New Pedestrian Bridge at Erasmusrand on National Route 1 Initially, the arch, being primarily a compression member, was envisaged to consist of precast concrete elements.

The excessive weight associated with a concrete arch made transport and erection unfeasible and thereby a lighter steel solution was adopted. Sishen Modular Plant Expansion Project Steel is utilised as it fits well into the modular design approach from the perspective of time-saving and transportability.

Cummins Johannesburg Relocation Program Waterfall Behind all the curved sweeping lines is a steel structure made up of large span girder trusses supporting trusses in the opposite direction. Com Air Simulator 3 Building The flexibility of steel was the only answer to the curved structure of the building.

Wisium SA Pty Ltd - Relocation and extension of Mixing Plant in Brits Industrial In the difficult financial climate that we as South Africans find ourselves, this is a brilliant example of how steel can innovatively be used to assist the growth of a company while keeping the costs much lower than expected.

Made up of Heavy hot rolled sections. Village Square Durbanville Structural steel girders and trusses were used to support roof sheeting. BBI Packers Hoedspruit The large spans and spaces require the implementation of a metal clad steel structure.

Runway Business Park The warehouse and the various office components being approximately 37 m2 were envisaged to be done in steel and sheeting Otto Volek The warehouses being approximately 26 m2 in total, was envisaged to be done in steel with sheeting as it was designed around the possibility of future racking and stacking heights Peech Hotel the planted steel mesh of the wrap-around balconies was an important element in the kit of parts we used to craft the articulated facades of an urban village.

LP8 Mini Warehouses Waterfall Technically, we wanted to achieve all this by using the simplest of construction details at a modest budget and easy to duplicate. One of their multiple production facilities is located in Groot Drakenstein in the Western Cape and it is here that two new buildings, the New Product Development Facility NPD and the Laboratory, have been constructed to replace existing facilities that have been outgrown.

While each facility is housed in a separate building, they have been designed together so as to create a cohesive pair of new buildings that contribute positively to the existing fabric of various sized industrial buildings.

Ultimately their design has formed part of a bigger scale project whereby the infrastructure, services and other existing facilities on the site have been upgraded, as part of a coherent master plan.

The Laboratory building includes a highly specialised laboratory with associated services and a small staff component including an office and meeting room. Concept Both buildings were conceived as steel sheds, appropriate to the somewhat rural context of Groot Drakenstein, and in congruence with the existing buildings and nature of activity across the site.

The Groot Drakenstein mountains to the west serve as a spectacular backdrop to the buildings and this inspired the divergence from a standard portal frame shed typology to an asymmetric shed form resulting in the building profiles subtly emulating the rise and fall of the mountains beyond.

This was achieved structurally through a series of different height portal frames running the length of each building that ultimately generated sloping eaves along the long elevations and horizontal eaves along the short elevations. Furthermore, the play of roof lines was enhanced by arranging the two building forms at ninety degrees to one another.

Also important in the design of each building was to create interiors that were user friendly and functionally efficient with a high level of finishes, notwithstanding their shed-like external appearance. Structure Each portal frame is constituted from xx25mm I-sections. The portal frames are then assembled at regular grid intervals along the length of the plan, with their different heights ordered to form roof gradients along the long axis and the roof ridge along the short axis.

The steel structure is concealed on all facades, as are the steel gutters and rainwater downpipes. The landmark structure crosses the main East Coast railway line and was installed over a very narrow time window.

Peter Everett 12 May, Unsuitable or offensive? Report this comment. Tata Steel sold their "Long Products" business to Greybull Capital, which have then created British Steel Therefore all open sections are now no longer under the control of Tata, hence the removal from the blue book.

Data for the open sections can be found here: TimB 22 June, 3: David Watson 27 June, Rather an oversight of the NCE not to note that open sections have been removed.

I thought it was the best thing with the project and the most challenging part of the project.
