No notes for slide. Bs 1. BS is a series of standards combining codes of practice with a guide covering the loading and design of lattice towers and masts of metallic construction.

This part of BS incorporates clauses to complement BS The need for this code of practice to give guidance on the determination of the strength of lattice towers and masts arises out of the difficulty in applying consistently the general structural strength codes to these often tall, slender three dimensional lattice structures. It was considered invaluable to have such relatively unique data built into a code as well as enabling the limit state loading rules to be accurately calibrated.

The additional clauses dealing with the special aspects of guyed masts represent the collective extensive experience of the drafting committee.

It is considered that they will provide efficient solutions to the strength assessment problem, whilst avoiding some of the causes of problems which have occurred on this type of structure. By liaison with the relevant Eurocode drafting team, the rules drafted into this code of practice have been based upon a common approach and should result in the minimum amount of variation when the National Application Document is prepared following the issue of the ENV.

This part of BS does not apply to other metallic structures. Other British Standards exist for some of those structures. It has been assumed in the drafting of this British Standard that the execution of its provisions will be entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced people. As a code of practice, this British Standard takes the form of guidance and recommendations.

It should not be quoted as if it were a specification and particular care should be taken to ensure that claims of compliance are not misleading. Annex A, annex B and annex C are informative. A British Standard does not purport to include all the necessary provisions of a contract. Users of British Standards are responsible for their correct application. Compliance with a British Standard does not of itself confer immunity from legal obligations.
