EC2 and BS 8110 compared

This paper is intended to raise awareness amongst the structural engineering profession of the forthcoming Eurocode for the Design of Concrete Structures EC2 which will, in a few years time, replace the existing British code BS 8110. The two codes are compared in the context of design of primary structural elements and information is given on the availability of design aids to assist the practitioner in becoming familiar with and using the new code. The results of a comparative design exercise on a whole building are also briefly reviewed.
