This design standard provides requirements for design and detailing of concrete structures. The chapters are laid out generally on the basis of phenomena. The normative text comprises principles (identified with P after the clause number) and application rules. The principles apply to all concrete structures. The code also incorporates particular rules for building structures. The code uses limit state design philosophy and covers the commonly applicable limit states. A number of nationally determined parameters are allowed to cater for safety factors and for the differing geographical, geological and climatic conditions throughout Europe. The code represents the up-to-date knowledge and experience of some 28 countries across Europe.
