Authors: Neo, Chee Wei
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Civil engineering::Geotechnical
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: British Codes and Standards (BS) have been used in practice for many years and for the past few years, it is use co-existence with Eurocodes (EC) for the past few years. The whole suite of structural Eurocodes is expected to replace the current BS Codes and standards in 2010. With this replacement, practicing engineers will need to be familiar with the methodology, design philosophy and assumptions adopted in the code. This report presents the differences in designing shallow foundations using different geotechnical codes namely BS8004, US Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and EC7. The three codes are discussed and design examples will be used in making comparison between the codes.
