Kommentar zum Handbuch Eurocode 7 - Geotechnische Bemessung
The commentary provides detailed foundations and explanations for a better understanding of the new terminology, regulations and definitions. The examples show how the new definitions can be put into practice in concrete situations. The book illustrates how the standard stability analyses in soil engineering, e.g. for flat footings, pile foundations, retaining structures, construction pit supports, anchorages or slopes, as well as checks against uplift and hydraulic ground failure can be performed based on Eurocode?s partial safety concept.
Lt. Baudirektor a. D. Dr.-Ing. Bernd Schuppener was head of the geotechnical division of the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute in Karlsruhe, Germany, until is retirement but still volunteers for various national and international standards committees regarding ground engineering. He is chair of the steering board "geotechnical and soil engineering", chair of the standards committee "Soil - safety checks in soil engineering", member of the standards committee "Investigation of soil and rock" and member of the European standards committee CEN/TC 250 / SC7 that created Eurocode EC 7 "Geotechnical design".
