Structural Concrete Design to Eurocode 2: Theory and Comparison with HKConcrete2013 - 10th April 2019

In September 2011, the Development Bureau of the Hong Kong SAR Government announced that the design of civil engineering structures will be based on Eurocodes, and the adoption of Eurocodes became mandatory in 2015. This act has significant impact to the local civil engineering industry.

Reinforced concrete is the major material for construction industry in Hong Kong and thus the corresponding effect of adopting Eurocodes would be significant.  EN 1992 Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures (EC2) is the code of practice for concrete design. This one-day CPD course aims at providing practising engineers with the theory and basis of structural concrete design to EC2.  The background to EC2, and general design concepts of the ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state for reinforced concrete buildings and members are introduced. In addition, differences between EC2 and HKConcrete2013 are discussed.


Course Outline:

  • Background to Eurocodes

  • Guiding principles of design to Eurocode 2

  • Design for flexure

  • Design for shear and punching shear

  • Axial load plus uniaxial and biaxial bending

  • Durability and concrete cover requirements

  • Bond and anchorage, laps in reinforcement

  • Comparison between EC2 and HKConcrete2013
