The 9th ERTC10 Webinar on the Second Generation of Eurocode 7 – Rock Engineering

The 9th ERTC10 Webinar on the "Second Generation of Eurocode 7 Rock Engineering" will be held on Wednesday, 24 April 2024, 15:00-17:00 (CET), and it is open for registration. It is organised jointly by ERTC10, CEN TC250/SC7 and NEN, with support of ISRM for this event.

The webinar will cover the subject of Rock Engineering, which was significantly improved in the second generation of Eurocode 7 compared to the current version. The Experts representing SC7's Rock Engineering Platform (SC7/REP) will explain:
- How rock engineering was implemented in the new code in terms of general rules in EN 1997-1.
- What we can find on relevant ground properties in the new EN 1997-2.
- What design aspects for specific geotechnical structures in EN 1997-3 have to be considered when dealing with rock masses.

As usual, this 2h long webinar is free of charge, and the agenda for this event includes:
1. Introduction -
Witold Bogusz, Jacobs & Secretary of ISSMGE ERTC10, Poland, together with Milorad Jovanovski, ISRM European Vice President at Large, North Macedonia.
2. Introduction of rock engineering in the second generation of the Eurocodes - Luís M. N. Lamas, LNEC, SC7/REP Convenor & ISRM Secretary General, Portugal.
3. Rock engineering in EN 1997-1 General rules - Herbert Walter, SC7/REP, Austria.
4. Rock engineering in EN 1997-2 Ground properties - José Estaire, CEDEX & SC7/REP, Spain.
5. Rock engineering in EN 1997-3 - Slopes, foundations and retaining structures - Paulo Pinto, University of Coimbra & SC7/REP, Portugal.
6. Rock engineering in EN 1997-3 - Anchors, rock bolts, rock support and groundwater control Natalia Maca, Ischebeck Titan Polska & SC7/REP, Poland.
7. Rock engineering in EN 1997 - Perspectives on the evolution to the third generation - John Harrison, University of Toronto & SC7/REP, UK.
