As the UK representative on the task group advising on the revision of Eurocode 7 – Anchors (TC 250/SC7/WG3/TG5), Dr Mothersille attended a series of meetings held over a period of two days at Villa Doria d’Angri in Naples, Italy. This beautiful and historic setting provided the ideal environment for extensive and detailed discussions covering a wide range of issues related to the second generation of Eurocode 7.
The meetings were very well attended with over 100 delegates from countries all over Europe.
Based on his own area of expertise, Dr Mothersille attended general sessions on anchors, on both days, and also actively participated in specially convened additional sessions aimed at tackling comments submitted by task group members on the redraft of EC7 – clause 8 (Anchors).
