As of April 2010, Eurocodes replaced British Standards as the principal design standards for bridges in the UK. In support of the transition the Bridge Design to Eurocodes: UK Implementation conference held at the Institution of Civil Engineers in November 2010 brought important background and explanatory information into the public domain. The proceedings of this conference provide an enduring record of the UK’s Eurocodes implementation for bridge design, with papers written by invited experts who have been at the very heart of Eurocode developments in the UK. Readers are provided with the key technical decisions taken in the development of the National Annexes, as well as important sources of complementary information and practical advice on applying the codes.
Providing definitive, essential and practical information on the implementation of the Eurocodes for bridge design in the UK, this book is essential reading for bridge owners, managers, designers, consultants, contractors, local or central government engineers, academics, and software developers, that is anyone interested or involved in the design, build, maintenance or ownership of bridges.
