Composite Structures according to Eurocode 4: Worked Examples

Preference :

Between the development and the implementation of the Eurocodes that are currently published and in effect in many countries across Europe a number of years have passed. Given a long time of initial adoption of the Eurocodes, some of the tests and methods of verification used in the current standards originate from the 1980s or 1990s. As is inherent in any standard, the Eurocodes have no educational character; their purpose is not to explain how they originated or developed. For Eurocode 4, this actually means that EN 1994-2004 no longer represents the state of the art for composite construction in Europe. The current level of scientific knowledge is not represented in the codes and they obviously do not take account of any forms of interaction between steel and concrete that now exist in the European construction markets but where the techniques were developed after the adoption of the code. Only the next generation of Eurocode 4 due to come into force in 2018 as EN 1994-2018 will be based on the reactions and comments of the construction industry to the current standard.
