This guide cuts through the apparent complexity of the Eurocodes for steel design, and provides the designer with a digestible approach to common tasks. Guidance is presented on design routes, with references to Eurocode clauses. Formulae are converted into look-up tables and design tips are highlighted. The compilation includes the related provisions in the UK National Annexes and appropriate non-contradictory complementary information.

The publication includes:

•A brief review of the basis of structural design and guidance on the principal actions and combinations of actions that need to be considered in orthodox building structures
•Rules for global analysis, bending and axial resistance
•Requirements for toughness against brittle fracture
•Rules for simple bolted and welded connections
•An outline of the rules for composite construction from Eurocode 4
•Appendices giving guidance on selection of the most critical combination of actions, simplified expressions for interaction factors for combined bending and axial force, and a simplified approach for the lateral torsional buckling resistance of unrestrained lengths of beams.
