Eurocode 3 development will make the code practical
Working groups have been set up to develop each of the 20 parts of Eurocode 3 in order to ensure it is developed to be useful and practical for desginers.
CB/203, the BSI technical committee responsible for UK input to the Eurocodes, has nominated leading UK experts to serve on each of the working groups (see table).
The experts, who are in some cases supported by mirror groups or panels, are seeking feedback from practitioners with experience of using Eurocodes.
“Some of this may come via queries raised with the SCI or the BCSA,” said Dr Roger Pope, Chairman CB/203. “Do not hesitate to inform the UK experts, direct or via BSI, of issues that concern you, as without feedback there is a danger that the Eurocode development will move away from providing practical design codes.”
