File Name: structural design codes and standards .zip
The Eurocodes are a set of structural design standards, developed by CEN European Committee for Standardisation over the last 30 years, to cover the design of all types of structures in steel, concrete, timber, masonry and aluminium. This is likely to remain the case for some time. This article introduces the Eurocode system , sets out the format that is used and explains the relationship between the Eurocodes, their National Annexes and non-contradictory complementary information NCCI.
A building code also building control or building regulations is a set of rules that specify the standards for constructed objects such as buildings and nonbuilding structures. Buildings must conform to the code to obtain planning permission , usually from a local council. The main purpose of building codes is to protect public health , safety and general welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of buildings and structures.
The building code becomes law of a particular jurisdiction when formally enacted by the appropriate governmental or private authority. Building codes are generally intended to be applied by architects , engineers , interior designers , constructors and regulators but are also used for various purposes by safety inspectors , environmental scientists , real estate developers , subcontractors, manufacturers of building products and materials, insurance companies, facility managers, tenants , and others.
Codes regulate the design and construction of structures where adopted into law. Examples of building codes began in ancient times. Fifty states and the District of Columbia have adopted the I-Codes at the state or jurisdictional level. Building Control regularisation charges apply in the event that work is undertaken which should have had been inspected at the time of the work if this was not done.
The practice of developing, approving, and enforcing building codes varies considerably among nations. In some countries building codes are developed by the government agencies or quasi-governmental standards organizations and then enforced across the country by the central government.
Such codes are known as the national building codes in a sense they enjoy a mandatory nationwide application. In other countries, where the power of regulating construction and fire safety is vested in local authorities , a system of model building codes is used.
Model building codes have no legal status unless adopted or adapted by an authority having jurisdiction. The developers of model codes urge public authorities to reference model codes in their laws, ordinances, regulations, and administrative orders.
When referenced in any of these legal instruments, a particular model code becomes law. This practice is known as 'adoption by reference'. When an adopting authority decides to delete, add, or revise any portions of the model code adopted, it is usually required by the model code developer to follow a formal adoption procedure in which those modifications can be documented for legal purposes.
There are instances when some local jurisdictions choose to develop their own building codes. At some point in time all major cities in the United States had their own building codes. However, due to ever increasing complexity and cost of developing building regulations, virtually all municipalities in the country have chosen to adopt model codes instead.
In Europe, the Eurocode: Basis of structural design , is a pan-European building code that has superseded the older national building codes. Each country now has National Annexes to localize the contents of the Eurocodes.
Similarly, in India , each municipality and urban development authority has its own building code, which is mandatory for all construction within their jurisdiction. All these local building codes are variants of a National Building Code,  which serves as model code proving guidelines for regulating building construction activity. Building codes have a long history.
The earliest known written building code is included in the Code of Hammurabi ,  which dates from circa BC. The book of Deuteronomy in the Hebrew Bible stipulated that parapets must be constructed on all houses to prevent people from falling off. After the Great Fire of London in , which had been able to spread so rapidly through the densely built timber housing of the city, the Rebuilding of London Act was passed in the same year as the first significant building regulation.
The first systematic national building standard was established with the London Building Act of Among the provisions, builders were required to give the district surveyor two days' notice before building, regulations regarding the thickness of walls, height of rooms, the materials used in repairs, the dividing of existing buildings and the placing and design of chimneys , fireplaces and drains were to be enforced and streets had to be built to minimum requirements.
The Metropolitan Buildings Office was formed to regulate the construction and use of buildings throughout London. Surveyors were empowered to enforce building regulations, which sought to improve the standard of houses and business premises, and to regulate activities that might threaten public health. In the assets, powers and responsibilities of the office passed to the Metropolitan Board of Works. The City of Baltimore passed its first building code in The Great Baltimore Fire occurred in February, Subsequent changes were made that matched other cities.
It served as the building code for four years. Very soon, a formal building code was drafted and eventually adopted in In Paris, under the reconstruction of much of the city under the Second Empire —70 , great blocks of apartments were erected  and the height of buildings was limited by law to five or six stories at most. The structural failure of the tank that caused the Great Molasses Flood of prompted the Boston Building Department to require engineering and architectural calculations be filed and signed.
The purpose of building codes is to provide minimum standards for safety, health, and general welfare including structural integrity, mechanical integrity including sanitation, water supply, light, and ventilation , means of egress, fire prevention and control, and energy conservation.
Building codes are generally separate from zoning ordinances, but exterior restrictions such as setbacks may fall into either category. Designers use building code standards out of substantial reference books during design. Building departments review plans submitted to them before construction, issue permits [or not] and inspectors verify compliance to these standards at the site during construction.
There are often additional codes or sections of the same building code that have more specific requirements that apply to dwellings or places of business and special construction objects such as canopies, signs, pedestrian walkways, parking lots , and radio and television antennas. As of March , the following residential codes have been partially or fully adopted by states: . As of September , the following residential energy codes had been partially or fully adopted by states: . As of January , the following residential energy codes had been partially or fully adopted by states: .
As of Fall , the following residential energy codes had been partially or fully adopted by states: . The remaining states had adopted either: a state-written code; a regional code; a prior version of the MEC or American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers standards; or no code at all.

ASCE Standards provide technical guidelines for promoting safety, reliability, productivity, and efficiency in civil engineering. Many of our standards are referenced by model building codes and adopted by state and local jurisdiction. They also provide guidance for design projects around the world. Standards are created or updated by a balanced, volunteer standards committee, followed by a public review period. All standards are updated or reaffirmed at least every 5 years.
Structural drawings will be reviewed for consistency with the architectural drawings, and to ensure that specific system detailing for items like components and trusses, are provided. Design of six storied residential apartment building 1. Clowser, Va. As discussed in Chapter 1, the residential construction material most commonly used above grade in the United States is light-frame wood; therefore, this chapter focuses on structural design that specifies standard. Farm building, any of the structures used in farming operations, which may include buildings to house families and workers, as well as livestock, machinery, and crops.
