Eurocode 3. Design of steel structures. Design of structures with tension components

Status : Current   Published : November 2006



BS EN 1993-1-11:2006 gives design rules for structures with tension components made of steel, which, due to their connections with the structure, are adjustable and replaceable.

This standard also gives rules for determining the technical requirements for prefabricated tension
components for assessing their safety, serviceability and durability.


  • General
  • Basis of design
