Abstract

Work to develop the Eurocodes started in 1975 by the European Commission adopted a program to eliminate trade barriers within the construction area. The goal was to create common European design standards that would replace the member countries' own rules. Eurocodes will replace The National Board of Housing Building and Planning, National Rail, The National Road Administration and other agencies' calculation rules for the buildings structures. The transition to the use of Eurocodes looks like this:

  • Eurocodes set to Swedish standards  between 2002 – 2007
  • They can be used parallel with national standards 2006 - 2009
  • The total transition is at the end of 2010/2011.

Right now is going on a lot of work for replacement of the existing standards to Eurocodes.  The transition to the new calculations` standards, many construction companies and consulting firms facing a big changes and competitions. Because of the preparations for the transition, I was commissioned by my examiners to carry out my thesis in the design of foundations by using Eurocodes. The report addresses, the design off foundations according to Eurocode SS - EN1997.

The purpose of this thesis is to point out the main changes occurring in the design of foundations of the implementation of Eurocode SS - EN1997 and the practical and financial implications that will have on the design and performing. The objective of this thesis is that it should be a basis for design and calculation of foundation.

The method of work has been to study existing and future conditions for the design of foundations, literature review and Internet searches have been made to gather information about Eurocodes, and collection of materials from my external supervisor has been made.

Below are a number of questions that will be answered in report:

  • What is the Eurocode SS - EN1997?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of Eurocodes?
  • What changes will occur in the design process?
  • What are the practical and economic consequences of Eurocodes for large and small companies?

Result of this work is that it can be used as a basis for design of foundation. In the capital 5 to 8 have been described the fundamental aspects of the design of foundations. Capital 9 relate to the design of various types of ground structures such as the Spread Foundation, Pile foundation and Retaining structures.
