BS EN 1991-1-1:2002

Eurocode 1. Actions on structures. General actions. Densities, self-weight, imposed loads for buildings

Status : Current   Published : July 2002



What is BS EN 1991-1-1:2002?

As part of the Eurocode 1 series, BS EN 1991-1-1 gives best-practice design guidelines and actions for the structural design of buildings and civil engineering works. These include the geotechnical aspects for the densities of construction materials and stored materials; self-weight of construction works; and imposed loading for buildings.

How does it work?

BS EN 1991-1-1 first explains the classification of actions, distinguishing between self-weight and imposed loads. The standard then defines design situations, before moving on to the densities of construction and stored materials. It concludes with the self-weight of construction works and imposed loads on buildings.
