On 20th September 2023, the AGS held a webinar entitled Second Generation Eurocode EN 1997: Where are We and Where are We Going?. The webinar was chaired by Chris Raison (Director at Raison Foster Associates) and included presentations from Dr Andrew Bond (Director at Geocentrix), Matthew Baldwin (Independent Consultant) and Stuart Hardy (Technical Leader – Geotechnical at Laing O’Rourke).
The webinar was split into two parts, the first part which was presented by Andrew Bond focused on preparing for the Second Generation Eurocodes and gave a clear timeline for publication. Andrew also provided information about Second Generation Eurocode EN 1997: Geotechnical design – Part 1: General Rules.
In the second half of the webinar, Matthew Baldwin presented on Second Generation Eurocode EN 1997: Geotechnical design – Part 2: Ground Properties, explaining the changed content and layout of this part of the standard.
Stuart Hardy provided an overview of Second Generation Eurocode EN 1997: Geotechnical design – Part 3: Geotechnical Structures and covered the changes which have been made to the clauses and what has not changed from current UK practice.
If you missed the webinar, the recording is now live on the AGS website and is free for AGS members and £30 for non-members (Ex. VAT).
