Designing with-eurocodes

  1. 1. DESIGNING WITH EUROCODESIntroductionThe Eurocodes is a common set of technical rules for the design of building and civilengineering works for European Union (EU) member states. Every member stateswill adopt and translate the base Eurocodes into their national language, e.g., forUK it would be BS EN 199X-Y-Y. Local differences within each member states willbe taken care of through their respective National Annex (NA), i.e. NA to BS EN199X.You can try the following websites for more information about Eurocodes: 1. Joint Research Centre – E.U. Commission 2. BSI 3. Eurocodes Expert 4. Institution of Structural Engineers 5. Concrete Centre 6. CLG – UK Government 7. Steel Concrete Institute 8. Access SteelBritish Standards Institution (BSI) has come up with a BSI Structural EurocodesCompanion (click to download the PDF) and it is available for free. It is written byleading industry experts from the world of standards and further afield. It deliverspractical and timely advice on how the new codes will work and how they mightbenefit construction professionals.The Eurocodes suite of codesThe Structural Eurocodes consist of 10 standards in 58 parts. They are: Eurocode Title No of parts EN 1990 Eurocode: Basis of structural design the head code EN 1991 Eurocode 1: Actions on structures 10 EN 1992 Eurocode 2: Actions on structures 4 EN 1993 Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures 20 EN 1994 Eurocode 4: Design of composite structures 3 EN 1995 Eurocode 5: Design of timber structures 3 EN 1996 Eurocode 6: Design of masonry structures 4 EN 1997 Eurocode 7: Geotechnical design 2 EN 1998 Eurocode 8: Design for earthquake resistance 6 EN 1999 Eurocode 9: Design of aluminium structures 5Created by Lim Kong Meng for Civil Engineering on 1st July 2010All Rights Reserved.

  2. 2. Searching for Eurocodes @ BSOLEurocodes are available at NTU Library through searching our subscribed database,British Standards Online (BSOL). The steps are: 1. Go to Library Homepage 2. Click on “Databases” 3. You will see the Alphabetical List. Select “B” and look for “British Standards Online” (BSOL). 4. After clicking BSOL the “Terms & Conditions of Use” page will appear. For remote access, user has to authenticate either as staff or studentXXXXX followed by your password. 5. Enter the Standard Number. To search for a Eurocode, for e.g. Eurocode 7, enter with inverted comma, “en 1997″ at the search box. You will receive many results if you just enter the number, “1997”.Created by Lim Kong Meng for Civil Engineering on 1st July 2010All Rights Reserved. NTU Library
  3. 3. 6. Three results for “en 1997″. Note: Eurocode 7 has 2 parts plus one National Annex (NA). 7. Click “Open Document” to either open or download the document (PDF). 8.

  4. 4. Selected Book Titles on Eurocodes1 Title: Structural elements design manual : working with Eurocodes Author:  Draycott, Trevor Call number:  TA658.D768 2009 Availability:  Click here Synopsis: This book is the structural engineer’s ‘companion volume’ to the four Eurocodes on the structural use of timber, concrete, masonry and steelwork. For the student at higher technician or first degree level it provides a single source of information on the behaviour and practical design of the main elements of the building structure. With plenty of worked examples and diagrams, it is a useful textbook not only for students of structural and civil engineering but also for those on courses in related subjects such as architecture, building and surveying whose studies include the design of structural elements. [As taken from book cover]2 Title:  PP 1990: 2007 Extracts from the Structural Eurocodes for students of structural design Publisher:  British Standards Institute Call number: QC100.B862 PP1990 2007 Availability: Click here Content: PP 1990 is a user-friendly guide which introduces the principals of Structural Eurocodes to students of civil engineering, structural engineering and structural design. This revised edition of PP 1990 includes updated extracts from nine of the ten published Eurocodes†. Each extract is accompanied with commentary and worked examples written by experts from industry and UK universities. This second edition also has the benefit of featuring extracts and explanatory text on the relevant published UK National Annexes which supply information on any nationally determined parameters referred to in the Eurocode text. It is important for students to be aware of the Structural Eurocode series. The series details common design principals and rules for the design of structures and component products, and describes a common series of methods for calculating the structural strength of elements used in construction. From 2010 this set of unified international codes of practice will replace national codes in the European Community. They are already mandatory for European public works and are set to become the benchmark standard for the private sector, throughout Europe and Worldwide.

  5. 5. 3 Title:  Decoding Eurocode 7 Author:  Bond, Andrew Call number:  TA705.4.E85B711 Availability:  Click here Synopsis: “Decoding Eurocode 7″ provides a detailed examination of Eurocode 7 Parts 1 and 2 and an overview of the associated European and International standards. Information scattered around the Eurocodes is collected into summary tables and diagrams. Extensive, fully annotated worked examples demonstrate how to apply Eurocode 7 to practical design situations. Flow diagrams explain how reliability is introduced into design and mind maps gather related information in a coherent framework.The coverage includes: the Structural Eurocodes; Basis of structural design and general rules for geotechnical design; Ground investigation, testing, and characterization; Verification of strength, stability, and serviceability; Design of slopes and embankments, footings, gravity walls, embedded walls, piles, and anchorages; Execution of geotechnical works; and, Geotechnical reports. Written by authors who specialize in lecturing on the subject, “Decoding Eurocode 7″ explains the key Principles and Application Rules of Eurocode 7 in a logical and simple manner. Invaluable for practitioners, as well as for high-level students and researchers working in geotechnical fields, it shows how to apply the Eurocode to real designs.
