Designers Guide To EN1990 Eurocode: Basis Of Structural Design

EN 1990: Basis of Structural Design is considered the primary document in the Eurocode suite and establishes for the structural Eurocodes the principles and requirements for safety and serviceability of structures. More importantly, EN 1990 must be applied whenever the Eurocodes 1 to 9 are used. This designers guide is one of the first to provide detailed information for using EN 1990. It provides technical information on the background to the Eurocode and explains its relationship to Eurocode 1: Actions on Structures and the material Eurocodes (2-6 and 9), Eurocode 7 for Geotechnical Design and Eurocode 8 for seismic design.
