Geotechnical Design to Eurocode 7
04 November 2010, 1 day
Organizer: Thomas Telford
Eurocode 7 represents a marked change in UK practice and there will be significant demands on those undertaking geotechnical designs to appreciate, understand and apply the new approach. It introduces greater discipline in having to think more explicitly about the many sources of uncertainty in geotechnical design and offers great flexibility at the same time as increased rigour. This intensive one-day course provides a thorough introduction to Eurocode 7, focussing on the key elements of the new geotechnical design code. An overview of the Eurocode suite is also given, clarifying geotechnical design in the context of Eurocode led design approaches.
