Decoding 2nd Gen Eurocode 7: Design of deep foundations


This course has been completely rewritten to cover the second generation of Eurocode 7, focusing on the requirements for the design of footings, gravity walls, and slopes.

The course provides a thorough introduction to the second generation Eurocode 7 Part 3 (EN 1997-3:202x), looking specifically at the verification of piled foundations; embedded retaining structures; grouted anchors; rock bolts and surface support; and groundwater improvement.

Course outline

  • General rules for deep foundations
  • Piled foundations (+ workshop)
  • Embedded retaining structures (+ workshop)
  • Anchors
  • Rock bolts and surface support
  • Ground improvement

This course has been registered by CITB NI for grant assistance to registered in scope employers.


Delegates are assumed to have prior knowledge of the second generation of Eurocode 7, obtained from our Basis of gotechnical design course. However, essential aspects of Eurocode 7 are reviewed.
