Abstract

Starting in 2010 the European Commission initiated the process of evolution of the first generation of Eurocodes. Based on Mandates M/466 EN and M/515 EN, CEN/TC250 created several expert groups which deal with this evolution work. This paper reports about the common ongoing work of Working Group TC250/SC3/EN 1993-1-5 and ECCS Technical Working Group 8.3 (Plate Buckling). Amendments which have been already prepared in order to improve the ease-of-use and to cover technical development are presented. An outlook which tasks are to be addressed in further work is given.
