Structural Steel Connections The Green Book


The Green Books gives essential guidance for structural steelwork connections for use in buildings. They have been produced by the SCI/BCSA Connections Group, which was established in 1987 to bring together academics, consultants and steelwork contractors to work on the development of authoritative design guides for structural steelwork connections. There are two publications for use in Eurocode design, and they may be downloaded here:

SCI P358 (2014 reprint) provides procedures for designing joints in steel-framed structures in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-8[1] and its accompanying National Annex[2], and with BS EN 1993-1-1[3] and its National Annex[4]. Connections between beams and columns using non-preloaded and preloaded bolts are included. Connections between beams and hot finished structural hollow section columns using the Flowdrill and Hollo-Bolt systems are also included. Design procedures are provided for:

This connection library content depends on the British metric structural steel sections, it is intended to be used in projects based on this content. This content is available for UK, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Africa. You need to download and install the country-specific content first. Download and install country-specific content.

Note: The delivered library files are practice examples about how national standards can be used to enable an automatic placement of simple steel connections, using ranges of applicability and Dynamo scripts. They can serve as a starting point for building your own company standards.

The Structural Steel Connections Limit State Design describes the behavior and operation of connections for steel buildings as well as the ideal design. It is based on SABS 0162-1, 1991 edition (SANS 10162-2).

To promote standardisation and reduce project costs and design time among steel fabricators, engineers and drafts- people, the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (Saisc) has launched a new book called Structural Steel Connections or more commonly known as The Green Book.

Structural Steel Connections deals with the elements connecting parts, such as beams and columns, together in steel structures, including the design of the connections, their fabrication in the workshop and their assembly on the construction site.

De Clercq says although international research was used in the compilation of Struc- tural Steel Connections, the book is written for South Africans and it is based on the local standards in the steel industry.

He hopes that the book will generally be adopted by industry professionals and by companies to compile their own practical guidelines and company standards and that it will become the ultimate reference for structural steel connections.

PAOLO RUGARLI is a structural engineer and the principal of Castalia S.r.l., a software developer and structural engineering consultancy founded in 1991. He has developed, among others, the Sargon and CSE software packages, both of which have been used in the commercial design and analysis of steel structures for many years He also wrote several books related to structural engineering, finite element analysis and validation of software structural models.

This book, hailed as the standard guide on the design of cold-formed steel by specialists worldwide, contains explanations of the construction and structural behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections from both theoretical and experimental perspectives. This all-new fifth edition provides readers with a better understanding of the analysis and design of the thin-walled, cold-formed steel structures that have become popular in building construction and other areas in recent years.

This book is the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource on Forensic Structural Engineering available. This definitive guide, which has been thoroughly updated and includes contributions from top specialists, provides a complete
