BS EN 1993-1-1:2005+A1:2014

Eurocode 3. Design of steel structures. General rules and rules for buildings

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : May 2005



What is this standard about?

It gives the latest recommendations for rules associated with the design of steel structures and includes a UK National Annex.

Who is this standard for?

  • Structural engineers
  • Civil engineers
  • Designers/Architects
  • Manufacturers/producers of construction products
  • Welders
  • The steel market and any market where steel components are used
  • The software systems industry (that produces solutions for design and construction and operation of infrastructure)

Why should you use this standard?

BS EN 1993 outlines the most up to date and relevant design rules for steel structures with material thickness ≥3 mm. This Eurocode also gives additional provisions and guidelines specifically for the structural design of steel buildings.

The National Annex to BS EN 1993-1-1 contains information on parameters which are left open in the Eurocode for national choice, known as Nationally Determined Parameters (NDP). The NA to BS EN 1993-1-1 includes all the UK's decisions on the permitted NDPs and is applicable to general rules and rules for buildings for steel structures to be constructed in the UK, related to BS EN 1993-1-1.

What’s changed since the last update?

BS EN 1993-1-1 has been fully revised by experts to bring it up to date with technological developments and industry best practice. Changes include:

  • It now incorporates informative Annex B from BS EN 1090-2 Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures
  • Technical requirements for steel structures. BS EN 1090-2 introduced the concept of Execution Class as an aid to designers when specifying execution requirements for steel structures. Guidance on the selection of the appropriate Execution Class that had been included in BS EN 1090-2 has now been incorporated as a series of requirements in a new normative Annex C to BS EN 1993-1-1
  • Some provisions in Annex C are for national determination - so an amendment to the UK National Annex to BS EN 1993-1-1 is now published that provides the necessary national rules
  • Eurocode 3 allows member states to recommend an alternative approach to Table C.1: Choice of execution class (EXC) in their National Annex
  • The UK's decisions on Table C.1 are included in the NA to BS EN 1993-1-1

NotesFollowing publication of the EN, there is a period allowed for national calibration during which the National Annex is issued, followed by a coexistence period of a maximum 3 years. During the coexistence period Member States are encouraged to adapt their national provisions. Conflicting national standards will be withdrawn by March 2010 at the latest. BS EN 1993-1-1 will partially supersede BS 449-2, BS 5400-3 and BS 5950-1, which will be withdrawn by March 2010.
