The vision for fib Model Code 2020 (MC2020), as a single merged general structural code, goes beyond the point reached by fib MC2010, recent ISO codes, such as ISO 16311, and the current Eurocode activities to extend their application to existing structures. The envisaged development is intended to result in an internationally recognized and comprehensive fib Model Code 2020 for new and existing concrete structures. This work is to be taken forward by TG10.1: Model Code 2020. It is clear from discussions at the TC that Commission 10 and TG10.1 should have wide international representation.
In October 2013, the hardcover and e-book editions of the fib Model Code 2010 (MC2010) were published by the Ernst & Sohn publishing house. This milestone publication presented new developments and ideas with regard to concrete structures and structural materials, and serve as a basis for future codes for concrete structures. It is as an essential document for national and international code committees, practitioners and researchers.
