'Well presented, clear and unambiguous ...I have no hesitation in recommending Decoding Eurocode 7 to both students and practitioners as an authoritative, practical text, representing excellent value for money.' – Tony Bracegirdle, Engineering Structures
'A beautifully written and presented book.' – Yul Tammo, Cornwall County Council
"Decoding Eurocode 7" provides a detailed examination of Eurocode 7 Parts 1 and 2 and an overview of the associated European and International standards. Information scattered around the Eurocodes is collected into summary tables and diagrams. Extensive, fully annotated worked examples demonstrate how to apply Eurocode 7 to practical design situations. Flow diagrams explain how reliability is introduced into design and mind maps gather related information in a coherent framework.The coverage includes: the Structural Eurocodes; Basis of structural design and general rules for geotechnical design; Ground investigation, testing, and characterization; Verification of strength, stability, and serviceability; Design of slopes and embankments, footings, gravity walls, embedded walls, piles, and anchorages; Execution of geotechnical works; and, Geotechnical reports. Written by authors who specialize in lecturing on the subject, "Decoding Eurocode 7" explains the key Principles and Application Rules of Eurocode 7 in a logical and simple manner.
Invaluable for practitioners, as well as for high-level students and researchers working in geotechnical fields, it shows how to apply the Eurocode to real designs.
