Designers’ Guides to the Eurocodes series provides comprehensive guidance in the form of design aids, indications for the most convenient design procedures and worked examples for the Eurocodes, with background information to aid the designer in understanding the reasoning behind and the objectives of the codes.

Designers’ Guide to Eurocode: Basis of Structural Design provides guidance on the interpretation and use of EN 1990 Eurocode: Basis of structural design – the primary document in the Eurocode suite. EN 1990 establishes the principles and requirements for safety, serviceability and durability of structures designed to Eurocodes and should be applied whenever Eurocodes 1 to 9 (EN 1991 to EN 1999) are used for the structural design or appraisal of buildings and other civil engineering works.

The lead title in the series, this guide provides explanation and commentary to the clauses in EN 1990, including the relationship to the other Eurocodes and information on the implementation of the Eurocodes and their use, with regard to National Annexes. Worked examples emphasise the rules that differ from those in previous codes.

This second edition has been fully updated and revised to cover the UK National Annex to BS EN 1990 and PSI(?) factors for execution (buildings) and includes additional examples and references to secondary guidance.

This guide is essential reading for:

• civil and structural engineers
• code-drafting committees
• clients
• structural-design students
• public authorities
in fact, everyone who will be affected by the Eurocodes.
