Designers’ Guide to EN 1997-1 presents a detailed guide to the new Geotechnical Design Eurocode.  As such it gives an invaluable insight into a code that, for the first time, provides a comprehensive design philosophy that is not only applicable to all forms of geotechnical problems but also shares a common philosophy with the design methodology for structures of all the commonly encountered construction materials.

Throughout, the book describes and explains the many unique features of ground engineering that require special design attention to ensure safety and adequate performance. Comprehensive checklists of aspects to be considered in design are given in Eurocode 7 and are emphasised in this book.

This guide is essential reading for:

• Civil and structural engineers
• Code-drafting committees
• Clients
• Structural-design students
• Public authorities.
