Emphasis is placed on application of the Eurocode with a focus on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
By the end of the course, you should be able to
Practicing structural and civil engineers seeking guidance on the application of Eurocode 8, graduates undertaking their Initial Professional Development, and students, researchers and academics with limited seismic design experience.
No previous experience in dynamics is required.
Professor Costas Georgopoulos CEng FHEA FCS FIStructE FICEs is Chair of Structural Engineering Practice at Kingston University London. He is also a practising engineer with many years’ unique multi-sector experience in seismic design such as conventional buildings in Greece and state-of-theart structures in the UK (Trident Submarine Refitting Facility at Rosyth and Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station). Costas’ expertise on EC8 includes consulting engineering worldwide, teaching PG programmes, supervising dissertations, authoring the IStructE’s forthcoming Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8 and being a member of the BSI National Expert Committee for the Eurocode.
