Whole Frames to EC3 Whole Frames to EC3














We are aware that steel fabricators are having difficulties with the design of elements and connections to the Eurocodes. Some fabricators continue to use their BS5950 based software or the green book to design their connections when the frame has been designed to EC3, reasoning that the Eurocode is based on the same principals. We have found that this approach is not always accepted by the Engineer.

We have invested in software and have written spreadsheets ourselves so that we can offer our services for the design of connections or whole frames to EC3.
