A Designer's Simple Guide to BS EN 1997

Book by Department for Communities and Local Government

Department for Communities and Local Government, 2007

The Guide seeks to:

a) give readers a simple explanation of the new suite of complementary geotechnical design, construction, investigation and testing documents that will largely replace the suite of national BSI codes and standards over the next few years;

b) clarify the meanings of new terminology, to explain design calculations and methods that are not covered explicitly in current Codes, to present easy-to-understand explanations of how the new methods work and to do this using simple design examples.

c) explain how to implement the new suite of documents in order to comply with the requirements of the Building Regulations.
