The 1st ERTC10 Seminar on "Second Generation of Eurocode 7 - Improvements and Challenges" held online on Tuesday 28th September 2021 exceeded our expectations with almost 600 registrations from all around the world. It highlighted the considerable international interest in the development of the next generation of European standards for structural and geotechnical design. We are glad to see that the primary interest in the event came from the designers and consultants, people who will be the main users of the new standard.
The event included three main presentations covering:
1. Introduction to Second Generation of Eurocode 7 by Adriaan van Seters (SC7 chair)
2. Ensuring Reliability in the new EC7 by Gunilla Franzén (SC7 vice-chair)
3. Deriving the Ground Model by Jose Estaire (SC7 PT6 member)
In addition, the Interactive Session prepared by Loretta Batali (SC7 MG member) gave us a really valuable insight into the interests of participants and their expectations for the next events.
The presentations from the Seminar, together with the Q&A answers and results of the interactive session, can be accessed via the NEN website:
ERTC10 would like to thank the SC7 committee and the presenters for their contributions, as well as NEN (Dutch national standardization organization) for the technical and organizational support with the live event.
