EN 1997 - Geotechnical design
EUROCODE 7 is subdivided into two parts
EUROCODE 7 is intended to be applied to the geotechnical aspects of the design of buildings and civil engineering works and requirements for strength, stability, serviceability and durability of structures.
EUROCODE 7 is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1990.
Numerical values of actions on buildings and civil engineering works to be taken into account in design are provided in EN 1991 for the various types of construction. Actions imposed by the ground, such as earth pressures, shall be calculated according to the rules of EN 1991.
EN 1997-2 provides rules for execution and evaluation of laboratory and field tests.
Separate European Standards are intended to be used to treat matters of execution and workmanship. They are denoted in the relevant sections. In EUROCODE 7 execution is covered to the extent that is necessary to comply with the assumptions of the design rules.
EN 1998 provides additional rules for geotechnical seismic design.
