On Monday 19th December 2011, I will be giving an online lecture entitled "Eurocode 7 – past, present, and future" on behalf of the International Society of Soil Mechancis and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). The lecture will be delivered twice on the same day, at 9 am and 4 pm GMT, so that as many people can attend throughout the world.
The lecture will provide a brief review of the development of Eurocode 7 and – in particular – the way it fits in with the development of other European standards for structural design, ground investigation and testing, and execution of geotechnical works. Some of the more important technical questions relating to the implementation of Eurocode 7 into design practice will be discussed and suggestions made for their possible resolution. Finally, the work that is currently underway to evolve the next generation of Eurocodes will be described.
I will post a link to the seminar's webpage when ISSMGE has set one up.
