21 Get involved in CIRIA projects and proposals Update to Embedded retaining walls (P2474) Whilst C580 remains hugely influential and an invaluable aid to the design of embedded retaining walls it does require revision and updating. Scope will include changes to design codes (Eurocodes etc), legislation and professional engineering practice during the intervening decade since C580 was published, and to extend its guidance to include all soil types including soft clays. Rock slope netting design, installation and maintenance (P2938) This guide will provide best practice to ensure the consistency of the installation and maintenance of rock slope netting. Starting on site (P2662) The aim of this project is to produce a guide covering all the key stages in the planning and set-up of a construction site. Deterioration and degradation modelling of infrastructure assets (P2730) CIRIA is undertaking scoping of a proposed project on deterioration and degradation modelling of infrastructure assets. Understanding & Application of Eurocode 7. Part 2 (P2852) This project requires support by the practitioners within the supply chain some of which have independently been writing their own in house guidance. Defects in hidden bridge components (P2905) Provide best practise guidance on the inspection and maintenance of the hidden components. Risk assessment for contamination in ground water (P2930) This project will provide practical guidance on risk assessment and management contaminated controlled water in light of the recent changes of the statutory guidance in England and Wales and other recent regulations in UK and EU. Archaeology and development good practice guide update (P2926) CIRIA is seeking to update Archaeology and development (C672) and would welcome industry feedback and involvement to identify views on the standing and uptake of the guide, and areas that require updating. Update of manual on scour at bridges and other hydraulic structures (RP987) This project will update the 2002 CIRIA manual and will incorporate advances made in the understanding and application of the science, engineering and hydraulics of scour at bridge sites, hydraulic structures and pipeline crossings. Abandoned mine workings manual (RP940) This project will develop a new publication to replace SP32 Construction over abandoned mine workings, published by CIRIA in 1984. Good practice on verification of protection and testing of barriers for hazardous ground gases (RP960) This project aims to help construction professionals ensure their remediation approach will meet the specification. Tower crane stability – update (RP999) The update of the 2006 Tower Crane Stability guide (C654) will demonstrate the safe design of tower cranes in response to changes since 2006. The guide will also highlight the potential for catastrophic events and reference the need for appropriate risk management activity, in light of a series of relevant accidents to tower cranes.
