Guidance on Eurocode 6

The purpose of this series of guides is to introduce designers to the basic

approach adopted in Eurocode 6. This is the first guide in the series of three

and provides:

■ A brief outline of the scope of Eurocode 6.

■ An introduction to design, including fire resistance and movement.

■ Assessment of actions and combination of actions using Eurocode*.

■ How to specify mortar and masonry units.

■ Glossary of Eurocode 6 terms.

The second guide in the series, Vertical resistance1, explains how to design

for vertical actions, whilst the third guide, Lateral resistance2, covers the

design of laterally loaded masonry panels. Further information on Eurocode 6
