This standard gives the general basis for the design of structures in plain, reinforced and prestressed concrete made with normal weight, lightweight and heavyweight aggregates together with specific rules for buildings, bridges and civil engineering structures, including temporary structures, under temperature conditions between –40 °C and +100 °C generally. It complies with the principles and requirements for the safety, serviceability, durability and robustness of structures, the basis of their design and verification that are given in EN 1990 Basis of structural and geotechnical design.
EN 1992 is only concerned with the requirements for resistance, serviceability, durability, robustness and fire resistance of concrete structures. Other requirements, e.g. concerning thermal or sound insulation, are not considered.
This Part 1-1 does not cover:
− resistance to fire (see EN 1992-1-2),
− fastenings in concrete (see EN 1992-4),
− seismic design (see EN 1998),
− particular aspects of special types of civil engineering works (such as dams, pressure
− design with galvanised reinforcing steel,
− structures made with no-fines concrete, aerated or cellular concrete, lightweight aggregate
concrete with open structure components,
− structures containing structural steel sections (see EN 1994 for composite steel-concrete
− Structural parts made of concrete with D_lower ;lt; 8 mm, unless otherwise stated in the code.
