The new design code in Europe for civil engineering work is called eurocode. The eurocode is actually build up of 10 different main eurocodes and covers subjects like design loads, concrete structures, steel structures, aluminium, timber and masonry structures. Geotechnical design (foundations) and earthquake resistance of structures is also covered in separately eurocodes.
As an example, Eurocode 3 - Design of steel structures, contain some of the following subjects:
- Steel structures with material thicknesses t > 3 mm (resistance of cross sections, buckling, material properties etc.)
- Structural fire design
- Accidental situation
- Cold formed thin gauge members and sheeting
- Stainless steels (austenitic and austenitic-ferritic stainless steels)
- Planar plated structures (incl. plate buckling and shear lag in I-section plate girders and box girders)
- Shell structures
- Planar plated structural elements with out of plane loading
- Design of joints (bolts, rivets, pinconnections, welding etc.)
- Material toughness and through-thickness properties
- Tension components
- Steel bridges
- Towers, masts and chimneys
- Silos, tanks and pipelines
- Crane supporting structures
