This book offers a consolidated version of the Eurocode 6 geared for practical applications. It consists of the Eurocode 6 text where the regulations of the National Annexes were integrated into the corresponding paragraphs, equations and illustrations of the code. At the same time those recommendations not applicable to Germany were removed. To increase its practical value, the national stipulations, changes and additions are highlighted. Short explanations and references in a margin column provide an aid in adjusting to and daily use of it.
