"Having reached the goal of starting to publish the series of EN Eurocodes, the construction industry needs all possible assistance in applying the codes, and making the necessary transitions from existing national practice. The "Designers' Guides to the Eurocodes" is a very important step in the process, and should facilitate a fast and effective transition to the full and successful adoption of the world's leading construction design standards in the UK and wider. I commend them". -David W Lazenby, CBE Director, British Standards, BSI Chairman of CEN/TC 250, "The Structural Eurocodes" - 1991-1999."EN 1990: Basis of Structural Design" is considered the primary document in the Eurocode suite and establishes for the structural Eurocodes, the principles and requirements for safety and serviceability of structures. More importantly, EN 1990 must be applied whenever the Eurocodes 1 to 9 are used. This designers' guide is one of the first to provide detailed information for using EN 1990. It provides technical information on the background to the Eurocode and explains its relationship to Eurocode 1: Actions on Structures and the material Eurocodes (2-6 and 9), Eurocode 7 for Geotechnical Design and Eurocode 8 for seismic design.The background to the principles and rules is discussed, emphasising the rules which differ from those in existing codes. Worked examples illustrate the use of new procedures. This guide will be essential reading for all those affected by the introduction of the Eurocodes - especially: Civil and Structural engineers; Clients; Code-drafting committees; and, Public authorities. This guide will prove an invaluable resource for structural designers.
