This Part of BS 8118 provides recommendations for the design of the elements of framed, lattice and stiffened plate structures, using wrought aluminium alloy. The design recommendations are for a variety of aluminium alloys suitable for structural use, and apply to a range of structures subjected to normal atmospheric conditions such as bridges, buildings, towers, road and rail vehicles, marine craft, cranes and offshore topside structures.

This British Standard does not cover aerospace alloys, the detail design of castings, curved shell structures or structures subjected to severe thermal or chemical conditions. It is not intended to be used for the design of containment vessels, pipework, airborne structures or naval vessels.
