BS EN 1999-1-3:2007+A1:2011

Eurocode 9. Design of aluminium structures. Structures susceptible to fatigue

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : August 2007



BS EN 1999-1-3 describes the principles, requirements and rules for the structural design of aluminium components and structures subjected to fatigue actions and gives rules for:

  • Same life design;
  • Damage tolerant design;
  • Design assisted by testing.

This standard is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1090-3 ‘Technical requirements for the execution of aluminium structures’, which contains the requirements necessary for the design assumptions to be met during execution of components and structures.

The following subjects are dealt with in BS EN 1999-1-3:

Section 1: General
Section 2: Basis of structural design
Section 3: Materials, constituent products and connecting devices
Section 4: Durability
Section 5: Structural analysis
Section 6: Ultimate limit state of fatigue

Annex A: Basis for calculation of fatigue resistance [normative]
Annex B: Guidance on assessment by fracture mechanics [informative]
Annex C: Testing for fatigue design [informative]
Annex D: Stress analysis [informative]
Annex E: Adhesively bonded joints [informative]
Annex F: Low cycle fatigue range [informative]
Annex G: Influence of R-ratio [informative]
Annex H: Fatigue strength improvement of welds [informative]
Annex I: Castings [informative]
Annex J: Detail category table [informative]
Annex K: Hot spot reference detail method [informative]

Please note this standard does not cover pressurised containment vessels or pipe-work.

BS EN 1999-1-3:2007 supersedes DD ENV 1999-2:2000. BS 8118-1:1991 is partially superseded.
