BS EN 1997-1:2004+A1:2013

Eurocode 7. Geotechnical design. General rules

Status : Current   Published : December 2004



What is this standard about?

This is one of ten harmonized European structural design standards. This one supplies general rules for geotechnical design.

Who is this standard for?

  • Clients
  • Designers
  • Contractors
  • Public authorities

Why should you use this standard?

It supplies general rules to be applied to the geotechnical aspects of the design of buildings and civil engineering works. It’s concerned with the requirements for strength, stability, serviceability and durability of structures. It is intended to be used as a general basis for the geotechnical aspects of the design of buildings and civil engineering works.

NOTE: This standard should be used in conjunction with BS EN 1990 which establishes the principles and requirements for safety and serviceability, describes the basis of design and verification, and gives guidelines for related aspects of structural reliability. It should also be used with the UK National Annex: NA+A1:2014 to BS EN 1997-1:2004+A1:2013 UK National Annex to Eurocode 7. Geotechnical design. General rules

What’s changed since the last update?

This 2013 amendment includes a new Section 8 on anchors. It requires designers to show that anchors will perform satisfactorily in service conditions and will also prevent failure in the supported structure (ultimate limit states) in more onerous conditions than those checked historically, defined by partial factors. These requirements are to be demonstrated by testing the anchors. The code takes no account of calculated anchor capacities.

NotesThis standard is the subject of transitional arrangements agreed under a European Commission mandate. In order to allow for any changes in national regulations, the Commission in consultation with Member States have agreed a transition period for the co-existence of EN 1997-1 and corresponding national standards. At the end of this coexistence period BS 5930:1999, BS 8002:1994, BS 8004:1986, BS 8006:1995, BS 8008:1996 and BS 8081:1989 will be withdrawn.
