Second Generation of Eurocode 7 - Rock engineering

ISSMGE (International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotecnical Engineering) presents the 9th ERTC10 Webinar on the Second Generation of Eurocode 7 - Rock Engineering, to be held on Wednesday, 24 April 2024, 15:00-17:00 (CET). The webinar is organised jointly by ISSMGE ERTC10 (ISSMGE European Tehnical Committee 10 - Evaluation of Eurocode 7), CEN/TC 250/SC7 and the Dutch Standards Body NEN, with support of ISRM (International Society for Rock Mechanics). 

The registration is now open at the link provided below, and participation is free of cost.

The webinar will cover the subject of Rock Engineering, which was significantly improved in the second generation of Eurocode 7 compared to the current version. The Experts representing SC7's Rock Engineering Platform (SC7/REP) will explain:

  • How rock engineering was implemented in the new code in terms of general rules in EN 1997-1
  • What we can find on relevant ground properties in the new EN 1997-2
  • What design aspects for specific geotechnical structures in EN 1997-3 have to be considered when dealing with rock masses.

The agenda includes:

  1. Introduction - Witold Bogusz, Jacobs & Secretary of ISSMGE ERTC10, Poland, together with Milorad Jovanovski, ISRM European Vice President at Large, North Macedonia.
  2. Introduction of rock engineering in the second generation of the Eurocodes - Luís M. N. Lamas, LNEC, SC7/REP Convenor & ISRM Secretary General, Portugal.
  3. Rock engineering in EN 1997-1 General rules - Herbert Walter, SC7/REP, Austria.
  4. Rock engineering in EN 1997-2 Ground properties - José Estaire, CEDEX & SC7/REP, Spain.
  5. Rock engineering in EN 1997-3 - Slopes, foundations and retaining structures - Paulo Pinto, University of Coimbra & SC7/REP, Portugal.
  6. Rock engineering in EN 1997-3 - Anchors, rock bolts, rock support and groundwater control - Natalia Maca, Ischebeck Titan Polska & SC7/REP, Poland.
  7. Rock engineering in EN 1997 - Perspectives on the evolution to the third generation - John Harrison, University of Toronto & SC7/REP, UK.
  8. Q&A session.
