Contents of Eurocode 7 - Parts 1 & 2 3. In the eurocode series of European standards (EN) related to construction, Eurocode 1: Actions on structures (abbreviated EN 1991 or, informally, EC 1) describes how to design load-bearing structures. Ground investigation and testing Publication Date 2007-04-30 International Relationships EN 1997-2:2003 Descriptors EN 1997 is intended to be applied to the geotechnical aspects of the design of buildings and civil engineering works.

Eurocode 1 is divided into a number of parts. Part 1-1 Common rules and rules for buildings Part 1-2 Structural fire design Part 2 Bridges Eurocode Eurocode 1 Actions on structures Part 1-1 Densities, self-weights and imposed loads Part 1-3 Snow loads Part 1-4 Wind loads Part 1-7 Accidental loads Etc.
