En jämförelse mellan Eurocodes och BKR (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Between the year 2008 and 2011 a new code of pracitce for construction of buildings will replace our present code. This new code is called Eurocodes and consists of ten different parts.

In this degree thesis the different calculationmodels in Eurocodes and in our Swedish code of practice, BKR, is presented and compared. The fields included are Loads and combination of loads, Classes of safety and Concrete-/Steelstructures. The main purpose with this degree thesis is to investigate if there are any differences in the safetylevel between the codes. In order to do this, results from loadcalculations and calculations of materialcharaceristics have been compared.

It can be stated that the safetyaspects is treated differently in the two codes. BKR gives the opportunity to adapt the safetylevel according to the buildings usage, which gives a more exact and costefficient system. At the same time calculations according to Eurocodes gives rougher dimensions and because of this a higher safetylevel.

Abstract [sv]

Mellan år 2008 och 2011 kommer ett nytt regelverk för dimensionering av bärande konstruktioner i byggnader ersätta vårat nuvarande. Detta heter Eurocodes och består av tio olika delar.

I detta examensarbete presenteras och jämförs de olika beräkningsmodeller som finns i Eurocodes och vårat svenska regelverk, BKR. De områden som berörs är Laster och lastkombinationer, Säkerhetsklasser och Betong-/Stålkonstruktioner. Det huvudsakliga syftet med examensarbetet är att klargöra eventuella skillnader i säkerhetsnivån mellan de olika normsystemen. För att kunna göra detta har resultat av beräkning av laster och materialegenskaper jämförts.

Man kan konstatera att säkerhetsaspekten behandlas på olika sätt i de olika normerna. BKR ger möjligheten att anpassa säkerhetsnivån efter byggnadens användningsområde, vilket ger ett mera exakt och kostnadseffektivt system. Samtidigt ger beräkning med Eurocodes grövre dimensioner och med detta en högre säkerhetsnivå.
