Abstract [en]

From January 1st 2011 the use of Eurocode will be mandatory for all construction

projects. Eurocode is the common European set of struc-tural design codes which will

replace BKR (Boverkets Kon-struktionsregler). BKR is the Swedish set of structural

design codes that was used up until December 31 2010. For consulting firms this will

cre-ate a need for them to invest in the standards and in education for the

coworkers. This will involve both time and costs for the company.

The purpose and aim of this master thesis is the development of compute examples

and calculations aid by dimensioning with Euro-code. The content of the report

consists of a short introduction of Euro-code; its description and its purpose.

A short retrospective of the elderly structural designs and BKR. The main part

consists of the compute mode for the different structural parts in different materials.

Different expressions and coefficients will be explained.

This master thesis is created to meet the needs of Byggkonsulten Widberg.

Byggkonsulten Widberg is a consultant firm in Uppsala which carries out different

structural assignments.

With help of the developed compute examples the coworkers can learn and

understand the compute mode in a quicker way. They will also be able to dimension

different structural parts in an effective and simple way with help of the compute aid.
