Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures - Part 1-11: Design of structures with tension components
(1) EN 1993-1-11 gives design rules for structures with tension components made of steel, which, due to their connections with the structure, are adjustable and replaceable see Table 1.1.
NOTE: Due to the requirement of adjustability and replaceability such tension components are generally prefabricated products delivered to site and installed into the structure. Tension components that are not adjustable or replaceable, e.g. air spun cables of suspension bridges, or for externally post-tensioned bridges, are outside the scope of this part. However, rules of this standard may be applicable.
(2) This standard also gives rules for determining the technical requirements for prefabricated tension components for assessing their safety, serviceability and durability.
