This code provides minimum requirements for
design and construction of structural concrete elements
of any structure erected under requirements of
the legally adopted general building code of which this
code forms a part. In areas without a legally adopted
building code, this code defines minimum acceptable
standards of design and construction practice.
This code shall govern in all matters pertain-ing to design, construction, anhd material properties wherever this code is in conflict with requirements contained in other standards referenced in this code.
The preparation of this British Standard was entrusted by Technical Committee B/525, Building and civil engineering structures, to Subcommittee B/525/1, Actions (loadings) and basis of design, upon which the following bodies were represented: British Constructional Steelwork Association Ltd. British Iron and Steel Producers Association British Masonry Society Concrete Society Department of the Environment (Building Research Establishment)
This Part of BS 5628 has been prepared under the direction of Technical
Committee B/525, Building and Civil Engineering Structures. It supersedes
BS 5628-1:1978, which is withdrawn.
This edition of BS 5628-1 introduces technical changes, but it does not reflect a
full review or revision of the standard which will be undertaken in due course.
This Part uses limit state philosophy, in accordance with practice in other codes.
The 1948, 1964 and 1970 editions of CP 111 were in permissible stress terms, and
a section on reinforced masonry walls was included.
This Part of BS 6399 gives minimum imposed roof
loads for use in designing buildings and building
components which are to be constructed and used in
the UK and the Channel Islands. It applies to:
a) new buildings and new structures;
b) alterations and additions to existing buildings
and existing structures.
Caution is necessary in applying the snow load
calculations for sites at altitudes above 500 m and
specialist advice should be obtained in such
situations (see appendix C).
BS 449 was first issued in 1932 and was revised in December 1935, July 1937,
July 1948 and May 1959. It was reset and reprinted in February 1965
incorporating amendments Nos. 1 to 5 and reprinted in October 1967
incorporating amendments Nos. 6 and 7.
When a programme of Codes of Practice for Buildings was drawn up in 1942
under the aegis of the Ministry of Works, a Code of Practice for the structural use
of steel in buildings was included in a series for all types of building construction:
this was later (1948) issued as CP 113....
This new edition of this part of BS 5950 has been prepared under the direction of Technical Committee B/525, Building and Civil Engineering Structures. It replaces BS 5950: Part 5:1987 which is withdrawn. BS 5950 is a document combining codes of practice to cover the design, construction and fire protection of steel structures and specifications for materials, workmanship and erection.

TCXDVN 264: 2002 is compiled on the basis of the Ordinance on PWD:
Article 26.- “The investment for new construction or reconstruction of dwelling houses, of public amenities and for design, manufacture of domestic furnitures, of transport and communication means ... must take into account the needs for convenient use by PWD, firstly of mobility and sight PWD, and at the same time have to comply with construction codes, standards issued by competent state agencies”.
QCXDVN 01:2002 “Building Code of Construction Accessibility for People With Disabilities” is a legal writing stipulating minimal technical requirements mandatory to be enforced in the construction of buildings.

TCXDVN 264: 2002 is compiled by the Research Institute for Architecture – Ministry of Construction and Panel for elaborating “Building Codes and Standards of Construction Accessibility for People With Disabilities”, submitted by the Department of Science and Technology - Ministry of Construction, has been approved, signed and issued by the said Ministry for enforcement.
The Standards have been compiled with the cooperation and financial assistance by President’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities (PCEPD) and the Vietnam Assistance for Handicapped (VNAH).
The structural design of steelwork is based on BS 5950 in the UK and
countries following this code. The title of this code is given below:
BS 5950 Structural use of steelwork in building.
This section has been compiled to help designers in the UK and USA to
appreciate the principal differences and similarities of applying Eurocode 3:
Part 1.1 (EC3) (originally European standard ENV 1993-1-1).
This is a book about developing effective web applications. We’re not
going to dance around this issue. Underneath everything else, this
around for almost a decade now. Not only do we admit this truth,
we embrace it. Just because these standards have been around for a
while doesn’t mean that we can’t build something new and exciting out
of them. Technology, like Jello, takes a while to solidify into something
tasty and satisfying....
This Part of BS 5950 has been prepared under the direction of the Civil
Engineering and Building Structures Standards Policy Committee. BS 5950 is a
document combining codes of practice to cover the design, construction and fire
resistance of steel structures and specifications for materials, workmanship and
This Part of BS 5950 gives recommendations for the use of profiled steel sheeting
as “stressed skin” shear diaphragms, including the design and construction of
such diaphragms, their effects on the design of structural frameworks and the
design of frameless steel structures. It also gives worked examples showing the
application of the method to several different design cases.
This is a book about building apps with good design, parsimonious code and aesthetic appeal on the Apple iPhone
and iPod Touch. At times, this book references code and give sample projects; other times, it delves into interaction
and visual design. It doesn’t take a CS doctorate to appreciate or even understand, but some familiarity with
programming is assumed
This is a book about user interface design. As a consequence, you’ll find lots of screenshots and only very
little code. Several of the authors don’t even have a programming background, but they all share the same passion
David Barnard of App Cubby is one such person; he has created a suite of essential utilities that enjoy
great popularity on the App Store. In Chapter 1, he takes you through the process of perfecting entry views and
presenting data, which both play central roles...
OK, so now you know everything about the language. But can you actually build
something in it? You’ll hear that argument from some who’ve never taken (or passed)
the programmer’s exam. Obviously, they don’t understand how darn difficult the
programmer’s exam actually is, but nonetheless there is something to the claim that,
“just because you know how the compiler and VM work does not mean you can
develop software.” The Developer exam, which is unique in the IT exam world,
lets you answer that question (most often posed by a prospective employer)....
