Reference: Workshop “Eurocode 7: Geotechnical Design” Dublin, 13 - 14 June, 2013
<p>Eurocode 7, the new European standard for geotechnical design, together with the other Eurocodes for structural design, was implemented in 2010, and relevant parts of British Standards that covered the same ground were<br />withdrawn. Since it is a single ...

<p>A comparative study of pile design is presented using Eurocode 7 and an expanded reliability - based design (RBDE) method that is recently developed by the authors. A design example that has been used in the literature to illustrate Eurocode 7 is re-designed ...
