Eurocode 2: Design of concrete structures - Part 1-1: General rules and rules for buildings

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 December 2004
Status: active
Page Count: 230
ICS Code (Concrete structures): 91.080.40
ICS Code (Technical aspects): 91.010.30
scope:

Scope of Eurocode 2

(1)P Eurocode 2 applies to the design of buildings and civil engineering works in plain, reinforced and prestressed concrete. It complies with the principles and requirements for the safety and serviceability of structures, the basis of their design and verification that are given in EN 1990: Basis of structural design.

(2)P Eurocode 2 is only concerned with the requirements for resistance, serviceability, durability and fire resistance of concrete structures. Other requirements, e.g. concerning thermal or sound insulation, are not considered.

(3)P Eurocode 2 is intended to be used in conjunction with:

EN 1990: Basis of structural design

EN 1991: Actions on structures

hEN's: Construction products relevant for concrete structures

ENV 13670: Execution of concrete structures

EN 1997: Geotechnical design

EN 1998: Design of structures for earthquake resistance, when concrete structures are built in seismic regions.

(4)P Eurocode 2 is subdivided into the following parts:

Part 1.1: General rules and rules for buildings

Part 1.2: Structural fire design

Part 2: Reinforced and prestressed concrete bridges

Part 3: Liquid retaining and containing structures

Scope of Part 1-1 of Eurocode 2

(1)P Part 1-1 of Eurocode 2 gives a general basis for the design of structures in plain, reinforced and prestressed concrete made with normal and light weight aggregates together with specific rules for buildings.

(2)P The following subjects are dealt with in Part 1-1.

Section 1: General

Section 2: Basis of design

Section 3: Materials

Section 4: Durability and cover to reinforcement

Section 5: Structural analysis

Section 6: Ultimate limit states

Section 7: Serviceability limit states

Section 8: Detailing of reinforcement and prestressing tendons - General

Section 9: Detailing of members and particular rules

Section 10: Additional rules for precast concrete elements and structures

Section 11: Lightweight aggregate concrete structures

Section 12: Plain and lightly reinforced concrete structures

(3)P Sections 1 and 2 provide additional clauses to those given in EN 1990 "Basis of structural design".

(4)P This Part 1-1 does not cover:

- the use of plain reinforcement

- resistance to fire;

- particular aspects of special types of building (such as tall buildings);

- particular aspects of special types of civil engineering works (such as viaducts, bridges, dams, pressure vessels, offshore platforms or liquid-retaining structures);

- no-fines concrete and aerated concrete components, and those made with heavy aggregate or containing structural steel sections (see Eurocode 4 for composite steelconcrete structures).
