Some structural design concepts of tubular steel scaffolding are presented herein. Factors that are considered in the design are loading condition, basic structural element, bracing, fonndation and ancillary fittings. Emphasis is given to the use of modular frame scaffoldings according to the standards in some countries. Finally, the result of system performance test on a typical modular frame scaffolding system produced locally is presented. The results shows that the frame system has high' buckling load capacity arid complies with the standard specification.
