Eurocode 6, or BS EN 1996: Design of masonry structures, relates to buildings and other civil engineering works, and covers reinforced, prestressed and confined masonry. The four parts cover the rules for reinforced and unreinforced masonry, structural fire design and detailed rules for lateral loading. The four parts are:
- BS EN 1996-1-1:2005 Design of masonry structures. General rules for reinforced and unreinforced masonry structures
- BS EN 1996-1-2:2005 Design of masonry structures. General rules. Structural fire design
- BS EN 1996-2:2006 Design of masonry structures. Design considerations, selection of materials and execution of masonry
- BS EN 1996-3:2006 Design of masonry structures. Simplified calculation methods for unreinforced masonry structures
The Concrete Centre has a range of technical guidance to assist engineers with the design of masonry structures to Eurocode 6.
This publication seeks to provide information for structural engineers who are designing tall buildings in concrete.
This publication widens the understanding of post-tensioned floor construction and illustrates the considerable benefits.
An all-you-need-to-know guide on the specification of sustainable concrete.
Concrete's ability to provide passive cooling is widely applied in both new and refurbished buildings; this guide explains thermal mass and its advantages.
This guide sets out how concrete's attributes can be used to minimise CO2 emissions.
