Decoding 2nd Gen Eurocode 7

click to download brochureTraining courses on Eurocode 7

The Structural Eurocodes were introduced into UK practice in April 2010, with many engineers still lacking formal training in the application to everyday design problems.

For almost 20 years, Geocentrix has offered a series of one-day training courses on Eurocode 7 for in-house and public delivery to civil, structural, and geotechnical engineers.

These courses have been completely rewritten to cover the second generation of Eurocode 7, due to be published between 2024 and 2025. They focus on requirements for the design of geotechnical structures.

The course provides a thorough introduction to the second generation Eurocode: Basis of structural and geotechnical design (EN 1990:2023) and Eurocode 7: Geotechnical design Parts 1-3 (ENs 1997-1 to -3:202x).

All course are available online.


The Decoding Eurocode 7 courses are developed and delivered by Dr Andrew Bond (Geocentrix Ltd).

Andrew is the Chair of BSI committee B/526 Geotechnics (since July 2023) and was past-Chair of CEN committee TC250/SC7 Geotechnical design (from 2010-2019). He played a key role in the development of the 2nd Generation Eurocode 7. Andrew has been a UK delegate on SC7 since 1997.
