Methods & Competences
Standards and Guidelines in connection with our services
The major standard for structural steel design is Eurocode which is used in most cases. For given purposes, specific standards apply, e.g. DIBt for German wind projects and IEC for international wind projects. Also, local country standards may apply which is part of the standard hierarchy investigation which is the beginning of a new project.
In wind energy, especially offshore, industry guidelines such as DNV from the merger of the original DNV and GL must also be observed.
For all cases of fatigue design we consult the recommendation guidelines of the International Institute of Welding (IIW).
