Overview

BS 5950-1 gives recommendations for the design of structural steelwork using hot rolled
steel sections, flats, plates, hot finished structural hollow sections and cold formed
structural hollow sections, in buildings and allied structures not specifically covered by
other standards.

BS 5950-1 has been amended to take into account the issue of a number of new related
standards adopting European or international standards for materials and processes, plus
revisions to standards for loading.

Technically updated clauses include those for:


sway stability
avoidance of disproportionate collapse
resistance to brittle fracture
local buckling
lateral-torsional buckling
shear resistance
stiffeners
members subject to combined axial force and bending moment
joints

connections
testing

In all cases the reason for changing the recommendations on a topic is structural safety,
but where possible some adjustments based on improved knowledge have also been made
to the recommendations on these topics to offset potential reductions in economy.

Some of the text has been edited to reduce the risk of misapplication. In addition some
topics omitted until now have been added, including separators and diaphragms and
eccentric loads on beams.

Overview

BS 5950-5:1998 gives recommendations for the design of structural steelwork in buildings and
allied structures using cold formed sections. It is primarily intended for steel sections of
thickness up to 8 mm. Requirements for materials and construction are given in BS 5950-7.
Sections may be either open or closed and should be made up of flat elements bounded either by
free edges or by bends with included angles not exceeding 1358 and internal radii not exceeding
5t where t is the material thickness.
Closed sections may be made either:
i) by joining together two previously formed open sections by continuous welding;
ii) from a single flat strip, by forming the corners to make a box, and continuously welding the
longitudinal joint.
Welded cold formed hollow sections conforming to BS EN 10219 are not covered by this part of
BS 5950.

NOTE Cold formed products conforming to BS EN 10219 are the subject of amendments to BS
5950-1 and -2 which are in preparation.
