EN 1990 establishes Principles and Requirements for the safety, serviceability and durability of structures, describes the basis for their design and verification and gives guidelines for related aspects of structural reliability.
|EN 1990:2002||Eurocode - Basis of structural design|
|EN 1990:2002/A1:2005||Eurocode - Basis of structural design|
EN 1990 is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1991 to EN 1999 for the structural design of buildings and other civil engineering works, including geotechnical aspects, structural fire design, situations involving earthquakes, execution and temporary structures. For the design of special construction works (e.g. nuclear installations, dams, etc.), other provisions than those in EN 1990 to EN 1999 might be necessary.
EN 1990 is applicable for the design of structures where other materials or other actions outside the scope of EN 1991 to EN 1999 are involved.
EN 1990 is applicable for the structural appraisal of existing construction, in developing the design of repairs and alterations or in assessing change of use.
EN 1990 may be used, when relevant, as a guidance document for the design of structures outside the scope of the EN Eurocodes EN 1991 to EN 1999, for:
- assessing other actions and their combinations;
- modelling material and structural behaviour;
- assessing numerical values of the reliability format.
This JRC Conference and Workshop Report presents the scope, programme, conclusions and follow-up of the Eurocodes Balkan Summer School 2021 on the seismic design of concrete buildings
The work outlines recent EU policies supporting the sustainability and climate resilience of infrastructure and buildings.
It evaluates the expected variations in climatic factors causing corrosion,…
Reliability of structural members designed with the Eurocodes NDPs selected by EU and EFTA Member States
Reliability is defined in the Eurocodes as the “ability of a structure or a structural member to fulfil the specified requirements, including the design working life, for which it has been designed”…
