Abstract

New scaffold forms and materials are regularly developed in different parts of the world. Design codes like the Eurocode-3 and EN12811-3(2003) cover mainly the typical steel scaffolds that the design of unconventional new scaffolding systems is difficult. This paper proposes the use of stability and plastic-element collapse analysis of a new scaffolding system made of steel and bamboo materials. The calculation shows the safety of the system when properly designed, fabricated and used.
