Fundamentals of Eurocode 7


This course provides a thorough introduction to Eurocode 7 Parts 1 and 2, looking especially at the verification of limit states GEO, STR, EQU, HYD, and UPL and the important topic of ground characterization.


The 'Fundamentals' course requires no prior knowledge of Eurocode 7 and is an essential 'starter' for the more specialized 'Design of shallow / deep foundations' courses.
