Eurocode 3 is the new standard for the design of steel structures. It is wider in scope than other Eurocodes due to the diversity of steel structures, the range of design options and the possible slenderness of construction.

It is divided into six parts and twenty sections covering: General Rules and rules for buildings; Bridges; Silos, tanks and pipelines; Piling and Crane-supporting structures.

This programme mainly concentrates upon building structures and the first part of Eurocode 3.
