Description

One of the key requirements for the design of buildings is the specification of the actions that structures need to carry. This volume will cover the actions that need to be taken into account for the design of buildings. The book will explain the Eurocode clauses on densities, self-weight and imposed loads; snow loads; thermal actions; actions during execution and accidental actions (including impact loads and explosions). Wind actions and actions due to fire are covered by other volumes in the series.

The purpose of this handbook is to help the designer to acquire a good knowledge of the appropriate Eurocodes parts of EN 1991, which they can use in design. Background information is given for each clause and relevant worked examples are provided.
