The aim of this publication is to illustrate through worked examples how Eurocode 2
maybe used in practice to design in-situ building structures. It is intended that these workedexamples will explain how calculations to BS EN 1992
may be performed. This will becarried out within the environment of other relevant publications:
Material and execution standards.
Publications by The Concrete Centre and others.There are, therefore, many references to other documents and while it is intended that thispublication, referred to as
can stand alone it is anticipated that usersmay require several of the other references to hand, in particular, Concise Eurocode 2
,which summarises the rules and principles that will be commonly used it the design of reinforced concrete framed buildings to Eurocode 2.
The worked examples relate to in-situ concrete building structures. The designs are inaccordance with Eurocode 2 Part 1
, as modified by the UK National Annex
and explainedin PD 6687
. The design of other forms of concrete are covered in other publications
.Generally, the calculations are cross-referenced to the relevant clauses in Eurocode 2
and, where appropriate, to other documents. See Table 1.1 for a guide to presentation andSection 11 for references. All references in the margins are to Eurocode 2 Part 1–1
unlessindicated otherwise. References to BS 8110
refer to Part 1 unless otherwise stated.
