FPS E-Pile Schedule for Eurocode design

The introduction of Eurocodes has altered the format of pile loading information and the procedures with which the structural and geotechnical design resistances for piles are determined. The E-Pile Schedule has been developed by the UK Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) to accommodate the latest Eurocode requirements for loading on foundations. This article highlights the considerable benefits of adopting a standard pile schedule for Eurocode design.

Concrete Bridge Design and Construction series. No. 3: Prestressing for concrete bridges

This article examines the prestressing for a concrete bridge. Prestressing enhances the capacity of a member that is weak in tension, but strong in compression. It effectively creates a new material that is strong in tension. A prestressed bridge has much less steel to be handled, which reduces congestion, leading to easier and quicker concrete placing.
