Scope of Eurocode Fart

EN 1998-5: EN 1998-5 establishes the requirements, criteria and rules for the siting and foundation soil clauses 1.1(1), of structures for earthquake resistance. It covers the design of different foundation systems 1-1(2) and earth-retaining structures under seismic actions, as well as the special issue of soil-

structure interaction. It applies to all types of earthquake-resistant structures, beyond buildings. In that sense, along with Sections 2 and 3 of EN 1998-1 that define the performance requirements and the seismic action, EN 1998-5 provides the 'foundation' for the rest of Eurocode 8 (the other five parts).
