Provides guidance on the interpretation and use of EN 1994-2 and presents worked examples. This book deals with the issues that are encountered in typical steel and concrete composite bridge designs, and explains the relationships between EN 1994-1-1, EN 1994-2 and the other Eurocodes.
This book is an authoritative guide to the technical background and practical aspects of this European code of practice that will supersede corresponding national codes in the countries that are members of the European Standardisation Organisation - CEN (Comite Europeen de Normalisation). This book provides guidance on the interpretation and use of EN 1994-2 and presents worked examples. It deals with the issues that are encountered in typical steel and concrete composite bridge designs, and explains the relationships between EN 1994-1-1, EN 1994-2 and the other Eurocodes. There are references to EN 1992 for concrete structures and EN 1993 for steel structures and the guide includes the application of their provisions in composite structures.This book also provides background information and references to enable users of Eurocode 4 understand the origin and objectives of its provisions. The need to use many Eurocode parts can initially appear a daunting task to find information in the sequence required for a real design. To assist with this process, flow charts are provided for selected topics. This guide is essential reading for: civil and structural engineers; code-drafting committees; client; structural-design students; public authorities; researches; and trainers. Chris Hendy is the head of bridge design and technology for Atkins Highways and Transportation. Since 2001 he has been Atkins' named technical expert on steel and steel-concrete composite bridge design for the Highways Agency's Eurocode Implementation commission. His involvement with Eurocodes started in 1996 at the ENV stage with the preparation of UK National Application Documents.He is a member of Working Group 2 of the BSI committee B525/10, which maintains BS5400 Parts 4 and 5 and which has responsibility for producing the UK National Annexes for EN 1992-2 and EN 1994-2. He is also a member of the UK's Steel Bridge Group and is a member of the European Convention for Construction Steelwork Technical Working Group 8.3, Plate Buckling. Professor Roger Johnson worked on Eurocode 4 from 1972 until 2005. He led the project team that prepared the 2001 draft of EN 1994-2 Composite Bridges and worked on the drafting and editorial teams for the final version. He has worked on over 100 publications on composite structures of steel and concrete and is a consultant on this subject. He was awarded the Gold Medal of the Institution of Structural Engineers in 2006 and is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Emeritus Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Warwick.
