Eurocode 8: Design of structures for earthquake resistance - Part 3: Assessment and retrofitting of buildings

(1) The scope of Eurocode 8 is defined in EN 1998-1: 2004, 1.1.1 and the scope of this Standard is defined in (2), (4) and (5). Additional parts of Eurocode 8 are indicated in EN 1998-1: 2004, 1.1.3. (2) The scope of EN 1998-3 is as follows: - To provide criteria for the evaluation of the seismic performance of existing individual building structures. - To describe the approach in selecting necessary corrective measures - To set forth criteria for the design of retrofitting measures (i.e. conception, structural analysis including intervention measures, final dimensioning of structural parts and their connections to existing structural elements). NOTE For the purposes of this standard, retrofitting covers both the strengthening of undamaged structures and the repair of earthquake damaged structures. (3) When designing a structural intervention to provide adequate resistance against seismic actions, structural verifications should also be made with respect to non-seismic load combinations. (4) Reflecting the basic requirements of EN 1998-1: 2004, this Standard covers the seismic
