Abstract

This paper gives an overview of the work necessary and underway for the next version of part 1-1- of Eurocode 3 on steel structures: EN 1993-1-1. This work is done by Working Group 1 (WG1) of subcommittee CEN/TC250/SC3 and by Project Team 1 (PT1) responsible for the technical content of the next version of EN 1993-1-1. In the past, WG1 collected a longlist of items that may need improvement and recently carried out a systematic review that also yielded topics that need to be considered for the next version of EN 1993-1-1. The work of WG1 already resulted in amendments for EN 1993-1-1 which were accepted by CEN/TC250/SC3. PT1 is currently implementing these amendments in the next version of EN 1993-1-1, that is due in a few years’ time. In this paper, an overview is given of the amendments and of other developments related to EN 1993-1-1. The amendments concern among others several strength and stability related design rules. This paper is an extended and updated version of [1].
