About this publication

EN 1990: Basis of Structural Design is considered the primary document in the Eurocode suite and establishes for the structural Eurocodes the principles and requirements for safety and serviceability of structures. More importantly, EN 1990 must be applied whenever the Eurocodes 1 to 9 are used.

This designers’ guide is one of the first to provide detailed information for using EN 1990. It provides technical information on the background to the Eurocode and explains its relationship to Eurocode 1: Actions on Structures and the material Eurocodes (2-6 and 9), Eurocode 7 for Geotechnical Design and Eurocode 8 for seismic design.

The background to the principles and rules is discussed, emphasising the rules which differ from those in existing codes. Worked examples illustrate the use of new procedures.

This guide will be essential reading for all those affected by the introduction of the Eurocodes - especially:
Civil and Structural engineers
Clients
Code-drafting committees
Public authorities

This guide will prove an invaluable resource for structural designers.
