Eurocode 3 - Design of steel structures - Part 1-8: Joints

1.1   Scope of FprEN 1993-1-8
(1) FprEN 1993-1-8 provides rules for structural design of joints subject to predominantly static loading using all steel grades from S235 up to and including S700, unless otherwise stated in individual clauses.
NOTE   As an alternative to the design rules provided in Clause 9, the design rules given in CEN/TR 1993-1-801 "Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures - Part 1 801: Hollow section joints design according to the component method" can be used.
(2) The provisions in this document apply to steels complying with the requirements given in EN 1993 1 1 and to material thickness greater than or equal to 3 mm, unless otherwise stated in individual clauses.
1.2   Assumptions
(1) Unless specifically stated, EN 1990, EN 1991 (all parts) and the other relevant parts of EN 1993-1 (all parts) apply.
(2) The design methods given in FprEN 1993-1-8 are applicable if:
-   the execution quality is as specified in EN 1090-2,
-   the construction materials and products used are as specified in the relevant parts of EN 1993 (all parts), or in the relevant material and product specifications.

Eurocode 3 - Bemessung und Konstruktion von Stahlbauten - Teil 1-8: Anschlüsse

1.1   Anwendungsbereich von FprEN 1993-1-8
(1) FprEN 1993-1-8 enthält Regeln für die Tragwerksplanung von Anschlüssen aus Stahl mit allen Stahlsorten von S235 bis einschließlich S700 unter vorwiegend ruhender Belastung, sofern in einzelnen Abschnitten nicht anders angegeben.
ANMERKUNG   Alternativ zu den Bemessungsregeln aus Abschnitt 9 können auch die Bemessungsregeln aus CEN/TR 1993-1- 801  "Eurocode 3: Bemessung und Konstruktion von Stahlbauten - Teil 1 801: Bemessung und Konstruktion von Anschlüssen mit Hohlprofilen entsprechend der Komponentenverfahren" verwendet werden.
(2) Die Bestimmungen in diesem Dokument gelten für Stähle, die den Anforderungen aus EN 1993-1-1 entsprechen, und für Materialdicken größer oder gleich 3 mm, sofern in den jeweiligen Abschnitten nicht anders angegeben.
1.2   Annahmen
(1) Sofern nicht ausdrücklich angegeben, gelten FprEN 1990, EN 1991 (alle Teile) und die entsprechenden Teile von EN 1993-1 (alle Teile).
(2) Das Verfahren nach EN 1993-1-8 ist anwendbar, wenn:
-   die Qualität der Ausführung den Vorgaben aus EN 1090-2 entspricht,
-   die verwendeten Baustoffe und -produkte den entsprechenden Teilen der EN 1993 (alle Teile) oder den entsprechenden Material- und Produktspezifikationen entsprechen.

Eurocode 3 - Calcul des structures en acier - Partie 1-8 : Assemblages

1.1   Domaine d'application du FprEN 1993-1-8
(1) Le FprEN 1993-1-8 fourni des règles pour le calcul structural d'assemblages soumis à un chargement essentiellement statique en utilisant toutes les nuances d'acier de S235 jusqu'à S700 inclus, sauf indication contraire dans certains paragraphes.
NOTE   En alternative aux règles de calcul prévues à l'article 9, les règles de calcul données dans le document CEN/TR 1993-1-801  "Eurocode 3 : Calcul des structures en acier - Partie 1-801 : Calcul des assemblages de profils creux selon la méthode des composants" peuvent être utilisées.
(2) Les dispositions du présent document s'appliquent aux aciers conformes aux exigences de l'EN 1993-1-1 et aux épaisseurs de matériau supérieures ou égales à 3 mm, sauf indication contraire dans les clauses individuelles.
1.2   Hypothèses
(1) L'EN 1990, l'EN 1991 (toutes les parties) et les autres parties pertinentes de l'EN 1993-1 (toutes les parties) s'appliquent, sauf indications particulières.
(2) Les méthodes de calcul données dans le FprEN 1993-1-8 sont applicables si :
-   la qualité de l’exécution est telle que spécifiée dans l'EN 1090 2, et
-   les matériaux et produits de construction utilisés sont tels que spécifiés dans les parties correspondantes de l'EN 1993 (toutes les parties) ou dans les spécifications de matériaux et produits appropriées.
