Decoding Eurocodes 2 & 7

A Foundation Design Course in Collaboration with Geocentrix

In-house course

This course can be delivered in the offices of a company to a group of up to 16 engineers. It is currently not available as a public course.


All structures require foundations and the material of choice is generally reinforced concrete. This course provides a detailed examination of Eurocode 2′s requirements for the design of reinforced concrete footings, gravity walls, and piles. The course includes worked examples and delegates can apply the knowledge gained through workshop sessions.

Aims & objectives

At the end of this course delegates will:

  • Have a knowledge of the standards for structural design of concrete foundations

  • Understand the basis of design for concrete foundations

  • Know how to undertake the structural design of spread foundations

  • Know how to undertake the structural design of semi-gravity walls

  • Know how to undertake the structural design of pile foundations

  • Be able to consider the connections between the superstructure and foundation.
