Dr Ciaran Reilly recently attended the 7th CEN TC250 SC7 Working Groups meeting in Naples on behalf of NSAI to discuss the ongoing work in preparing the next generation of Eurocode 7, the structural Eurocode covering the design of geotechnical structures. The outcome of the process will be a significantly changed and easier to use standard when the new document is released after 2020.
Ciaran is a member of the NSAI mirror committee to SC7. This committee is charged with reviewing and commenting on the revised documents and will prepare the necessary Irish National Annexes to the new Eurocode 7 parts when they are finalised.
The meeting was held in the spectacular Villa Doria d’Angri, part of the Parthenope University of Naples and built on a bench of tuff rock overlooking the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.
