Decoding 2nd Gen Eurocode 3: Design of steel foundations


This course has been completely rewritten to cover the second generation of Eurocode 3, with emphasis on particular aspects of steel design that are affected by contact with the gound.

It provides a detailed examination of Eurocode 3's requirements for the design of embedded sheet pile walls, bearing piles, and walings.

Course outline

  • General rules for steel foundations
  • Steel bearing piles
  • Steel sheet pile walls
  • Buckling of steel piles
  • Walings and tie-rods
  • Execution of steel piling


Our Structural Design courses assume no prior knowledge of Eurocode 3 (but essential aspects are reviewed).


Andrew Bond'Design of steel foundations' is presented by Dr Andrew Bond (of Geocentrix).
