Proposals for a user-friendly amendment suited for practice of the general rules and rules for buildings of steel structures (EN 1993 Part 1-1).

The Eurocodes will be revised in the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), Technical Committee (TC) 250, up to 2020. In preparation on the eurocode amendment engaged engineers have examined the most frequently used parts of the Eurocode 3 within the Initiative Practice-oriented Rules in Building Construction (PRB). The EN 1993-1-1 belongs to the examined parts as a basis part for the steel construction. With the aim to improve the user-friendliness and ease of use of EN 1993-1-1 the existing norm was analysed and proposals were compiled for the European amendment. The analyses show that lots of the texts can be shortened without loss of information. Restructuring can enhance comprehensiveness and ease of use of the general rules and rules for buildings of steel structures considerably.
