The Eurocodes is a common set of technical rules for the design of building and civil engineering works produced for European Union (EU) member states. Every member states will adopt and translate the base Eurocodes unchanged into their national language and published as, e.g., for UK it would be BS EN 199X-Y-Y. Local differences within each member states will be taken care of through their respective National Annexe (NA), i.e. UK NA to BS EN 199X.
You can look at the following websites for more information about Eurocodes:
The Eurocodes suite of codes
The Structural Eurocodes consist of 10 standards in 58 parts. They are:
||No of parts
||Eurocode 0: Basis of structural design
||the head code
||Eurocode 1: Actions on structures
||Eurocode 2: Actions on structures
||Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures
||Eurocode 4: Design of composite structures
||Eurocode 5: Design of timber structures
||Eurocode 6: Design of masonry structures
||Eurocode 7: Geotechnical design
||Eurocode 8: Design for earthquake resistance
||Eurocode 9: Design of aluminium structures
An example of the three parts for Eurocode 4:
||General rules and rules for building
||Structural fire design
Searching for Eurocodes @ BSOL
From the Database List, browse under B or search for British Standards Online (BSOL)
At the search box, for e.g., to access Eurocode 7, you can either do a phrase search with keyword, “eurocode 7” or with the standard number, “en 1997″
Please note Eurocode 7 has 2 parts, i.e., Part 1 and Part 2 and the NAs are related to UK.

Searching for Eurocodes adopted by Singapore
Eurocodes adopted and implemented by Spring Singapore (our national standards body) are also available in print format in our library collection. They are published with the prefix “SS”, e.g. Eurocode 4 is published as “SS EN 1994”. Both adopted Eurocodes and related Singapore NAs can be found in our collections by searching at our Library Catalogue by keying in "singapore eurocodes".
Selected Book Titles on Eurocodes
Structural Elements Design Manual by
Publication Date: 2009-07-02
This book is the structural engineer’s ‘companion volume’ to the four Eurocodes on the structural use of timber, concrete, masonry and steelwork. For the student at higher technician or first degree level it provides a single source of information on the behaviour and practical design of the main elements of the building structure. With plenty of worked examples and diagrams, it is a useful textbook not only for students of structural and civil engineering but also for those on courses in related subjects such as architecture, building and surveying whose studies include the design of structural elements. [As taken from book cover]
Design of composite steel and concrete structures : with worked examples to Eurocode 4 by
Call Number: TA664.C533d
Publication Date: 2014
The aim of this book is to introduce the European Standards – Eurocodes for structural steel design. The basic principles for design of steel structures according to EN 1993-1-1 General rules and rules for buildings and EN 1993-1-18 Design of joints are summarized. The design procedures and application of freely available tools are demonstrated through worked examples in this book.
Decoding Eurocode 7 by
Publication Date: 2008-10-20
“Decoding Eurocode 7″ provides a detailed examination of Eurocode 7 Parts 1 and 2 and an overview of the associated European and International standards. Information scattered around the Eurocodes is collected into summary tables and diagrams. Extensive, fully annotated worked examples demonstrate how to apply Eurocode 7 to practical design situations. Flow diagrams explain how reliability is introduced into design and mind maps gather related information in a coherent framework.The coverage includes: the Structural Eurocodes; Basis of structural design and general rules for geotechnical design; Ground investigation, testing, and characterization; Verification of strength, stability, and serviceability; Design of slopes and embankments, footings, gravity walls, embedded walls, piles, and anchorages; Execution of geotechnical works; and, Geotechnical reports.
Fatigue Design of Steel and Composite Structures by
Publication Date: 2011-11-30
This volume addresses the specific subject of fatigue, a subject not familiar to many engineers, but still relevant for proper and good design of numerous steel structures. It explains all issues related to the subject: Basis of fatigue design, reliability and various verification formats, determination of stresses and stress ranges, fatigue strength, application range and limitations. It contains detailed examples of applications of the concepts, computation methods and verifications.
Designers' guide to Eurocode 1 : actions on buildings : EN1991-1-1 and -1-3 to -1-7 by
Publication Date: 2009
The part of Eurocode 1 covered by this guide, EN 1991-1, addresses the general actions on building and civil engineering structures. This Designers’ Guide looks specifically at actions on buildings, including full explanation, commentary, examples and direction to the National Annex documents on ... sub-parts of the code.
Manual for the geotechnical design of structures to Eurocode 7 : May 2013 by
Publication Date: 2013
The Manual presents a unified design approach to geotechnical engineering and provides guidance across a range of activities, from traditional foundation design to slope stability, retaining wall design, investigation and reporting. The Manual aims to help engineers move from a permissible stress approach to that of the limit state design philosophy, as well as promoting interaction and understanding between structural and geotechnical engineers.
Modern Geotechnical Design Codes of Practice by
Publication Date: 2012
The ground is one of the most highly variable of engineering materials. It is therefore not surprising that geotechnical designs depend on local site conditions and local engineering experience. Engineering practices, relating to investigation and design methods site understanding and to safety levels acceptable to society, will therefore vary between different regions.The challenge in geotechnical engineering is to make use of worldwide geotechnical experience, established over many years, to aid in the development and harmonization of geotechnical design codes. Given the significant uncertainties involved, empiricism and engineering. Implementation and evolution of Eurocode 7 are also covered.
Designers' Guide to Eurocodes ebooks by ICE (Institution of Civil Engineers, UK)
The Designers’ Guides to Eurocodes series provides comprehensive guidance in the form of design aids, indications for the most convenient design procedures and extensive worked examples. The books within the series also include background information to aid the designer in understanding the reasoning behind and the objectives of the codes. All of the individual guides work in conjunction with the Designers’ Guide to EN 1990 Eurocode: Basis of Structural Design.
