BS EN 1990, Eurocode: Basis of Structural Design, is the key design code for the structural Eurocodes. Material-independent, it is designed to be used with every Eurocode part for the design of new structures. It establishes principles and requirements for safety and serviceability, and provides the basis and general principles for the structural design and verification of buildings.
This programme looks at the major concepts behind BS EN 1990 and considers some of the most innovative aspects of the code.
