Eurocodes enhanced website up and running

ICE News

ICE and the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) has launched an enhanced Eurocodes expert website.

The site, www. eurocodes.co. uk, aims to be the authoritative source of information on structural Eurocodes and is supported by an extensive range of partners drawn from professional bodies, trade associations and government.

Eurocodes will replace British Standards by 2010 as the codes of practice for designing buildings and civil engineering structures. They comprise 58 design standards covering 10 areas, grouped into 17 packages. The website uses a fitraf-c lightfl system to indicate the current UK status of each of the 58 Eurocodes parts.

The design and content of the website was overseen by a steering group drawn from the Institution of Structural Engineers Standing Committee on the Implementation of the Structural Eurocodes, chaired by professor David Nethercot and the ICE's Eurocodes Expert Advisory Group, chaired by Professor Haig Gulvanessian.

Professor Gulvanessian said:

fiEurocodes have been many years in their development and there is an urgent need for authoritative information for professionals to implement the codes in practice.

The Eurocodes Expert website provides de-nitive timely and relevant information available from the desktop. fl
