The European Standards and British Standards are the main standards used for the structural design in the UK and many countries around the world. This paper present a comparative study between the Eurocode EC3 and the British standard BS5950 regarding the design of several structural elements in multi-storey braced frame, with respect to each standard notation, load factors, load combinations and design consideration.
The paper compare both the flexural and shear capacity for steel beams, and the deflection values. In addition to compressive resistance for columns and the tension capacity of structural bracing elements.
The Eurocode EC3 provided higher design capacity for the designed members compared than British standards and resulted in similar deflection value
