ETC 3 will mainly work on the comparative analysis of design methods for piles in Europe.
It aims to organize an international seminar in Brussels in 2015 or 2016 in order to follow up the implementation of the National Annexes of Eurocode 7 in the design of piles, throughout the different countries in Europe. This seminar will be an update of the ERCT3 symposium organized by Flor De Cock in 1997.
In the continuity of former ETC3 activities with regard to static load testing, it is the aim to prepare guidelines with regard to dynamic testing on piles.
