EN 1997-1:2004 Eurocode 7 - Geotechnical design - General rules

EN 1997-1 is intended to be used as a general basis for the geotechnical aspects of the design of buildings and civil engineering works.

It covers geotechnical data, the supervision, monitoring and maintenance of construction operations, fill, dewatering, soil mechanics, pile foundations and embankments. It should be read in conjunction with BS EN 1990: 2002 which sets out the principles and requirements for safety and serviceability, and describes the basis of structural design and verification.

EN 1997-1 is accompanied by Annexes A to J, which provide:
— in A: recommended partial factor values; different values of the partial factors may be set by the National annex;
— in B to J: supplementary informative guidance such as internationally applied calculation methods.
