South African civil engineers are justifiably proud of their loading code. Thanks to work carried out in the 1980s, the code is theoretically sound and lays a solid platform for the development of materials codes. Regrettably, the development of materials codes has not been pursued. We have elected instead to adopt overseas codes and adapt these to local conditions. Our concrete code, for example, is modelled on British practice and our steel code on the Canadian approach.
