BSI - BS 7608
Code of Practice for Fatigue Design and Assessment of Steel Structures
|Publication Date:||15 April 1993|
|ICS Code (Metal structures):||91.080.10|
General recommendations for parts of structures which are subject to repeated fluctuations of stress. Covers wrought structural steel with yield strength up to 700 N/mm2 operating in sub-creep regime. BS 7608 is a code of practice for the design of steel structures and covers the general aspects of fatigue design of fabricated steel elements. It is for mechanical engineers. BS 7608 is being revised to bring it up-to-date with Eurocode 3. Since national standards covering the same subject matter as the Eurocodes will not be withdrawn until 2010, this revision of BS 7608 will allow UK users to have a more user-friendly alternative until that time.
