BS EN 1998-3:2005 Eurocode 8. Design of structures for earthquake resistance. Assessment and retrofitting of buildings

Although assessment and retrofitting of existing structures for non-seismic actions is not yet covered by the relevant materialdependent Eurocodes, BS EN 1998-3 was specifically developed
because:

  • For many older structures, seismic resistance was not considered during the original construction, whereas non-seismic actions were catered for, at least by means
    of traditional construction rules
  • Seismic hazard evaluations in accordance with present knowledge may indicate the need for retrofitting campaigns
  • Damage caused by earthquakes may create the need for major repairs.

BS EN 1998-3:2005 supersedes DD ENV 1998-1-4:1996.
