I will modify this post throughout the day, based on the proceedings of the meeting.
[09.30] Meeting re-opened. Discussion has centred on the best way to respond to the European Commission's Mandate regarding future development of the Eurocodes. We are attempting to agree what information should be included in the core response to the Commission, and what should be left in the individual project proposals.
[11.00] We now have a plan - a small team will prepare the core response to the Mandate and individual sub-committees will then update their proposals to align with the core response. This work needs to be completed before the next TC 250 meeting.
[11.45] We have now moved on to reports from Sub-Committee Chairmen. First up, Eurocode 7, detailing the forthcoming SC7 meeting in Cambridge, the BGA Symposium also in Cambridge, and the ISGSR Symposium in Munich. Also mentioned were the planned formation of Task Groups to take the work of SC7 forward.
[12.30] The was a workshop on seiemic design of buildings held in Lisbon in February. The proceedings include papers relevant to geotechnical engineering.
That's all folks! I have a plane to catch and so have to leave the meeting before its close.
