Question
Sir,
Is it ok if i design the steel structure by BS and connection design by american code?

Answer
Dear Arsalan

No real difference between codes to design connection unless the matter of seismic effect and dutility needs make a different concept of design basis. Then for normal situation where no seismic action exists the basics are the same in different codes.
