Analysis of the European National Annexes of Eurocode 2

Eurocode 2 consists of four parts which have to be applied in conjunction with the respective National Annexes of the CEN-member states. The National Annexes were introduced particularly to maintain the national safety level and to account for regional aspects in the different states.
The CEN (European Committee for Standardization) will revise and extend all Eurocodes up to 2018. Thereby have been formulated two essential objectives for revising Eurocodes, namely the reduction of the number of Nationally Determined Parameters (NDP) and the improvement for "ease of use".
In order to reduce the number of NDP, improve the ease of use and allow for a further harmonization without changing the main structure and the design models of Eurocode 2, the National Annexes of EN 1992-1-1 of different CEN-member states were compared and analysed. Furthermore, the analysis of the National Annexes may help to identify some main aspects for the revision of Eurocode 2.
Below the results of an analysis of the National annexes of EN 1992-1-1 are summarized and first proposals for a further harmonization are made.
