Eurocode 2 is the new standard for the design of concrete structures. It has been hailed as a robust and rigorous design code, taking a less prescriptive approach to design.

It is divided into four parts, covering: General Rules and rules for buildings; Structural fire design; Bridges; and Liquid–retaining and containment structures.

This programme concentrates on building structures and the first two parts, and gives an introduction to Eurocode 2, the differences with the British Standards, and what you need to know before getting started with your design.
