Further development and modification of the regulatory framework for parking decks

The ad-hoc group “Durability of vehicle-trafficked parking decks” agreed to develop a general system of classification for the regulations on the durability of vehicle-trafficked areas, consisting of a draft standard and notes for Heft 600 as well as details for the DBV Guide of good practice “Parking structures and underground garages.”

The German Committee for Structural Concrete (DAfStb) intends, as announced in [1], to submit to the German Standards Committee NABau a modification proposal for the National Annex to DIN EN 1992-1-1 (Eurocode 2, [2]). This proposal provides for substituting,...
