Concise Eurocodes - Loadings on Structures. BS EN 1991: Eurocode 1

Ian Burgess, Amy Green, Anthony Abu

This concise guide to the Eurocodes is for civil and structural engineers, and building control officers. It provides a briefer and more accessible presentation of the design procedures associated with the relevant Eurocode.

Following the same format as the Eurocodes it complements the same sections in BS EN 1991. The Nationally Determined Parameters of the National Annex to the relevant Eurocode are included, as well as some of the more important non-contradictory complementary information (NCCI).

It contains cross-references, from the BS clause to the associated clause in the relevant Eurocode (or its National Annex), BS EN 1990 (or its National Annex) or related Published Document.

Structural Eurocodes are a suite of design codes that will harmonize technical specifications for building and civil engineering works across Europe.

Their introduction in March 2010 requires the withdrawal of more than 50 British Standards. The change has been described as the single most important change to construction standards ever. It is expected that Eurocodes will not just dominate building design in the UK and Europe, but also have a major impact on many other parts of the world.

For consulting engineers the transition in structural design procedures from a British Standard to the replacing Eurocode constitutes a major programme of work for any construction material.

Concise Eurocodes assists consulting engineers in this task, by providing a briefer and more accessible presentation of the design procedures associated with the relevant Eurocode under examination:

  • It is laid out in the same Code format as the Eurocodes and maintains the same sections as the Eurocodes albeit with most sections being reduced in length
  • It does not cover the less frequently used components as well as not addressing the more complex analytical techniques (e.g. second order effects)
  • It directly incorporates the Nationally Determined Parameters of the National Annex to the relevant Eurocode as well as some of the more important non-contradictory complementary information (NCCI)
  • It contains cross-references, from the BS clause to the associated clause in the relevant Eurocode (or its National Annex), EN 1990 (or its National Annex) or related Published Document.

The reason for concise Eurocodes is accessibility to the design procedures pertaining to the relevant Eurocode rather than explanation of the design procedures of the code itself. However two design examples are presented covering design aspects where the Eurocode is markedly different from the old BS.

Contents of this guide to wind loading include:

  • BS EN 1990: Eurocode 0 – Basis of Design
  • Requirements
  • Design situations
  • Partial safety factors for different design situations
  • Combination factors for appropriate design situations
  • EN 1991: Eurocode 1-1 – Gravity loading
  • Gravity loading
  • Self-weight
  • Imposed loads
  • Roofs
  • Reduction of loads
  • Floors, beams and roofs
  • EN 1991-1-3: Eurocode 1 – Snow Loading
