Application of Eurocode 7 to the design of flood embankments (C749)

Application of Eurocode 7 to the design of flood embankments (C749)

This guide provides national guidance for practitioners in the UK and Ireland on the design of flood embankments to EN 1997 Eurocode 7: Geotechnical design. The aim is to improve clarity on key issues relating to the design of flood embankments, which are not addressed in detail by the current EN 1997.

These include:
- risk categories for flood embankments
- modification of partial factors on the basis of consequence
- distinction between different design situations
- design water levels and pore water pressures
- applicability of ULSs.
