Structural Concrete Design to Eurocode 2:

Theory and Comparison with HKConcrete2013

(12th January 2022)

In September 2011, the Development Bureau of the Hong Kong SAR Government announced the adoption of EC2 for the design of all public concrete structures in Hong Kong. Working through a transition period, the use of EC2 became mandatory in 2015. The complete implementation of EC2 for the design of all public concrete structures in Hong Kong has significant impact on the works departments of the HKSAR government and the local civil engineering industry. As the Buildings Department is now under the Development Bureau, the adoption of EC2 for the concrete design of private structures in Hong Kong may become necessary in the future.

EN 1992 Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures (EC2) is the code of practice for structural concrete design. This one-day CPD course aims at providing practising engineers with the theory and fundamentals of structural concrete design to EC2. The background of EC2, and the design concepts of both ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state for reinforced concrete structures and members are presented. Differences between EC2 and HKConcrete2013 are compared and discussed.

Course Outline:

    • Background of Eurocodes
