Projects underway

Application of Eurocode 7 to the design of flood embankments
Eurocode 7 is the EU standard for the design of geotechnical structures. Its use in public sector works became mandatory in EU member states in 2010 and it has been implemented in varying ways by member states.
Defects in hidden bridge components
CIRIA will produce a succinct guidance document for Hidden defects in bridge components.
Embedded retaining walls - update
Update to the existing best practice guidance on the selection and design of vertical embedded retaining walls.
