(1) The self-weight of structural and non-structural elements should be determined in accordance with ENV 1991-2-1, unless more specific data are available.
(2)P For the verification of structural members during transport or hoisting, the actual support conditions of these members shall be considered and account shall be taken of mass effects due to vertical and horizontal accelerations, where relevant.
Note 1 : Guidance is given in ENV 1991-5 for the assessement of vertical and horizontal accelerations due to transport and hoisting. |
Note 2 : Attachments for hoisting materials should be designed for actions according to ENV 1991-5.
