Fifty Years of Culverts and Soil–Structure Interaction: European Experience

The variety of cultures, languages and historical impacts has shaped the position of today’s Europe in engineering. As a continent comprised of 46 independent countries Europe has its challenges in the area of unification and standards (codes). Not all European countries are part of the European Union (EU) and those who are in the EU have not fully incorporated all Eurocodes. This paper provides a historical overview of the design and materials used for culverts in Europe. Ongoing research and development, and future research directions are highlighted.
