Ten years after their publication, the Eurocodes, including Eurocode 7 for geotechnical design, are being revised taking into account experiences with their use and developments in design concepts and practices since their publication to produce a second generation of the Eurocodes. The aims in this evolution of Eurocode 7 include that it should: 1. Improve its ease of use, particularly for day-to-day calculations. 2. Harmonize its structure with the other Eurocodes and other supporting
