EC7 - Have your say

  • 24.06.2014

CEN TC 250/SC7, the committee responsible for Eurocode 7, has published its plan for developing the next generation of Eurocode 7, scheduled for 2020. The plan comprises 6 tasks that will result in a new 3-Part standard with an emphasis on ease-of-use and more practical design rules. BSI has launched a Systematic Review of the Eurocodes (at tinyurl.com/mlfg3od) and invites responses to the six questions. This is your opportunity to influence the future direction of Eurocode 7 – please do not miss it!

Wave Propagation and Soil Stiffness Workshop

  • 05.06.2014

In 2009 the EPSRC awarded funding to a joint University of Bristol-Imperial College London research project entitled “Micromechanics of seismic wave propagation in granular materials” (EPSRC Grants EP/G064180 and EP/G064954). To mark the completion of this research project, a workshop entitled “Wave Propagation and Soil Stiffness” was held in Bristol on March 20 and 21. The dates were chosen to coincide with the BGA Rankine lecture. A total of 71 participants attended the workshop, about 40 of whom are based in the UK, with the remaining participants coming from diverse locations including Argentina, Japan, Portugal, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, USA, Mexico, and Australia. 20 minute presentations were delivered by 16 invited speakers, with the discussion on March 20 focussing on experimental studies, while the session on March 21 considered theoretical and numerical studies. The workshop was jointly supported by TC101 and TC105 of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, the British Geotechnical Association and the Institution of Civil Engineers.
