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
Describe E/Q damages and identify their causes
Apply principles of conceptual design of E/Q-resistant structures in practice
Appreciate ground motions and geotechnical aspects in structural seismic design
Apply performance requirements and compliance criteria for various types of buildings
Select models and methods of analysis of buildings for seismic actions
Carry out equivalent static analysis of simple buildings
Carry out safety verifications
Carry out simple structural element design and detail
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.

This course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focusses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
A series of two-hour interactive sessions taking place over three weeks to help experienced practitioners take their conceptual design skills to the next level. There will be a focus on understanding client needs, generating, and iteratively developing ideas, effective decision making in design, and managing design teams.
This course introduces advanced topics in timber design to Eurocode 5, including fasteners and connectors.
This popular course includes guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
This practical course introduces engineers to various computational design methods and systems. You will experiment with visual programming (using Grasshopper) and text-based programming (using C#). You will see how automation can improve engineers’ workflows. No previous experience is required.
This popular course provides a theoretical framework for understanding conceptual design in the context of structural engineering.
Share your knowledge of modern uses of timber.
This course demonstrates the similarities between stadium engineering and other types of design. It stresses the importance of the Class 3 structure review regulations and the critical compliance with stadium design guides.
This course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations. It is tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
