Amendments/Out of print

The following titles have been amended since initial publication. Details of the amendment are outlined below.

 

Manual for the design of building structures to Eurocode 1 and Basis of Structural Design (2010)

There was an error in Table 3.7 on page 66: "Footways or pavements greater than 3m wide adjacent to sunken areas" was listed in sub-category (ix) of category C5. It should have been listed in sub-category (x).

A 'version 1.2' of the publication was created in April 2017 which corrects this. Version 1.2 is available to purchase from the Institution's bookshop and is also available through IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel.

 


 

Structural use of glass in buildings (Second edition) (2014)

Equation 8.4 on page 63 was published incorrectly. The amendment is available here.

A 'version 1.1' of the publication was created in May 2015 which corrects Equation 8.4. Version 1.1 is available to purchase from the Institution's bookshop and is also available from IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel.

 


 

Appraisal of existing structures (Third edition) (2010)

Figure 6.10 on page 58 was replaced with a more suitable alternative.

The first sentence of section 6.4.2 on page 59 has been reworded from "Grey cast iron ('cast iron') is more ductile than modern spheroidal graphite iron: the latter, though more brittle, is stronger." to "Grey cast iron ('cast iron') as used structurally in the 19th century is brittle and weaker in tension than modern, ductile, spheroidal graphite iron."

The online version (available from both IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel) has been updated to incorporate these amendments.

 


 

Manual for the design of steelwork building structures to Eurocode 3 (2010)

On page 64 the last paragraph of Section 4.4.7.3 on the resistance of headed studs is incorrectly worded. The error means that the strength of studs is overestimated.

On page 95 h and h1 in Figure 8.6 have been transposed. Using them incorrectly will give a conservative result. The online version (available from both IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel) has been updated to incorporate these amendments.

The corrected pages 64 and 95 are provided in the March 2011 amendment which is available here.

 


 

Manual for the design of building structures to Eurocode 1 and Basis of Structural Design (2010)

On page 24 note b of Table 2.4 should be deleted, as the single source principle does not apply in this case. In the first line of Section 8.2.4 on page 160 and in the first column of Table 8.2 on page 162, references are made to Section 8.10. All of these should be changed to Section 8.4.10. The online version (available from both IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel) has been updated to incorporate these amendments.

The corrected pages 24, 160 and 162 are given in the March 2011 amendment which is available here.

 


 

Manual for the design of steelwork building structures (Third edition, 2008)

A December 2008 amendment contains four graphs that were mistakenly omitted from Appendix D. The amendment is available here.

A March 2011 amendment concerns an error which has been found in an equation on page 37 that relates to moments about the rafter hinge position and a check on whether the correct mode of failure has been assumed. Use of the equation as published could mean that the check is passed, when in reality it should have failed.

The corrected page 37 is given in the March 2011 amendment which is available here.

The online version of the Manual (available from both IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel) has been updated to incorporate all of these amendments.

 


 

Manual for the design of plain masonry in building structures to Eurocode 6 (2008)

On page 72, the final sentence in Section 5.3.6.3 is incorrect because it makes no allowance for the slenderness of the wall or column being designed. If used where the middle height eccentricity is calculated to be less than 0.05t, it will lead to an overestimate of the vertical load capacity of the wall or column, if the middle height reduction factor governs. The correct value of the middle height reduction factor should be obtained from Figure 5.13 or the appropriate equation (see Annex G in EN 1996-1-1).

On page 76, In the first equation in Section 5.3.8 the 't' should not be subscript as it is multiplied by the other terms.

The corrected pages 72 and 76 are given in the April 2010 amendment which is available here.

An April 2011 amendment deals with changes to three pages.

On page 76, the equation for determining the slenderness reduction factor at the mid height of wall has been wrongly set out, repeating a mistake in the base Eurocode that was not corrected until after the Manual was published. Additionally, the last paragraph on page 94 and procedure ii) on page 95 have been reworded to clarify their meaning.

The corrected pages 76, 94 and 95 are given in the April 2011 amendment which is available here.

The online version of the Manual (available from both IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel) has been updated to incorporate all of these amendments.

 


 

Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5 (2007)

  1. May 2008 amendments: Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5 – hardcopy manual.
  2. May 2008 amendments: Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5 – CD (Amendment to CD Version 1.0).
  3. July 2008 amendments: Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5 – hardcopy manual.

 


 

Manual for the design of concrete building structures to Eurocode 2 (2006)

    1. May 2010 amendment: corrects Table 5.2 on page 28. The published coefficient in Table 5.2 used to calculate the shear at the end support of a continuous one-way spanning slab, should read 0.46F, the published 0.046F is incorrect and would lead to an unsafe result.
    2. August 2009 amendment: corrects Table 5.17 on page 65. In some cases this error can cause designs to be non-conservative.
    3. March 2009 amendment: corrects the expression for e2 given in section 5.5.4.3 on page 64 of the manual. Without this amendment designs will be non-conservative.
    4. March 2008 amendment: corrects the expression for k given at the top of page 39 of the manual.

     


     

    Standard Method of Detailing Structural Concrete. A Manual for best practice (3rd ed) (2006)

    Two amendments have been issued, one in November 2006 and one in June 2011.

    The November 2006 amendment relates to pages 185 and 186 in Appendix B and is available here.

    The June 2011 amendment corrects a topographical error in the equation for ultimate bond stress fbd on page 41 of the manual. This error will increase the ultimate bond stress by 1.5 times and will consequently result in the basic required anchorage length lb,rqd being underestimated by 33%.

    The correct page can be available here.

    The related tables 6.1, 6.4, 6.7, 6.9 and 6.11 have been checked and are in accordance with the correct form of the equation.

    The online version of the Manual (available from both IHS's Construction Information Service and Knovel) has been updated to incorporate all of these amendments.

    Structural effects of alkali-silica reaction. Technical guidance on the appraisal of existing structures (1992)

    An addendum has been produced giving an update on the developments that have occurred since this report was published in 1992. The preferred term for this problem is now alkali aggregate reaction or AAR. Rules introduced and developed in the 1980s recommended limiting the alkali content in concrete in the UK. This has achieved the objective of minimising the risk of AAR in new construction. The number of cases of AAR worldwide continues to increase and more structures have needed major remedial work or replacement. There are now 47 countries where AAR has been reported. However RILEM, which is drawing up an atlas of known reactive rock types, has found that many owners and countries are reluctant to publicise cases.

    The online version of the report (available from IHS's Construction Information Service) has been updated to incorporate this addendum.

    Design of air-supported structures (1984)

    This publication consists of papers presented at a conference organised by the Institution, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, the Chartered Institute of Building and the University of Bath and held at the Churchill Hall, Bristol in July 1984.

     

    The manual has been produced to give practical recommendations for the design of reinforced concrete building structures using working loads and working stresses, and is a comprehensive revision of CP 114: 1969.
    The structural use of reinforced concrete in buildings extended to incorporate precast and composite construction.
    The recommendations are based on the assumption that the design of reinforced concrete is entrusted to chartered structural or civil engineers, for whose guidance the document has been prepared and that the execution of the reinforced concrete work is carried out under the direction of a qualified supervisor.
    The recommendations are intended to apply to all normal reinforced concrete building structures without limitation of size, although for special or complex structures reference to specialist literature or other design guidance may be appropriate
