Eurocodes Information

The Structural Eurocodes or Eurocodes are the current building standards for Europe and Britain. They will replace the British Standards on March 31, 2010. They are published by the European Committee for Standardization. They do not sell the standards themselves. To purchase the standards (which are quite expensive), go here.  You can read more about them here or by going to http://www.eurocodes.co.uk/

The Eurocodes are organized according to the following scheme:

EN 1990 Eurocode 0 Basis of structural design

EN 1991 Eurocode 1 Actions on structures

EN 1992 Eurocode 2. Design of concrete structures

One thought on “Eurocodes Information

  1. Hi,

    Thank you for these information. Eurocodes is a huge subject and it is part of Europe construction.

    Eurocodes are effectively a set of pan-European model building codes developed by the European Committee for Standardisation. The Structural Eurocodes are a set of harmonised European standards for the design of buildings and civil engineering structures. And the structural Eurocodes are divided into 10 areas.

    Moreover, with Eurocodes, it is a great opportunity which is going to open new markets for many European companies within the Eurozone and in the same time the chance for exchanging different design style.

    Cheers Ed Eckel,
