Concrete @ your Fingertips


Design - European Standards

Common European Standards are being prepared to cover all aspects of design. Design of concrete structures is dealt with in Eurocode 2 (EN 1992). The various parts, and anticipated publication dates are given below. The designation BS EN indicates that the document has been publ;ished by BSI. 

Following publication, there will be a period of consultation when the European Standards will coexist with British Standards. In due course British Standards will be withdrawn, being completely replaced by the European Standards.

BS EN 1992-1-1: Common rules for buildings and civil engineering structures (Published January 2005)
BS EN 1992-1-2: Structural fire design (Published February 2005)
EN 1992-2: Bridges (Published 2005)
