International Workshop “Design of Concrete Structures using EN 1992-1-1”

16 - 17 September 2010,  2 days

Venue: Campus of Czech Technical University in Prague, Dejvice

Organizer: Czech Technical University in Prague

Concrete design is both an art and science. With the new knowledge, new technology and novel materials, the codes are becoming more complex and the computer-aided design is the necessity for designing and detailing of reinforced concrete members. The current European practice in structural engineering tends more and more to accepting the benefits to be gained from using the Eurocodes for design of structures.

This First International Workshop focuses on the application of EN 1992-1-1, since this standard has been introduced and accepted as the national standard in many European countries and there already are some practical experiences with its use. The Organizing Committee expects a creative discussion which will continue after the Workshop on the following subjects: Background of EN 1992-1-1, Main features in National Annex, Experiences with National Annex, Experiences with practical design, Tables, charts and aids for design of concrete structures, Proposals of major changes for the next revision of standard.

The workshop topics will be upgraded on the applicant’s demand. Recognized experts and specialists in design of concrete structure from all over Europe will participate, thus offering a unique opportunity to share their experience and acquired knowledge.

The workshop is organized in cooperation with the Technical University in Vienna, Austria, and Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Slovakia. It is anticipated that the next Workshops will be held in Slovakia and in Austria.
