This interactive online course will share current state-of-the-art frameworks for the adoption of resilience-based design in professional practice, demonstrating advantages compared to a traditional prescriptive design and providing examples of how they benefit the client.

Course date

Monday 19 September, 10:00 - 17:30 GMT

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Differentiate between reliability, risk and resilience when quantifying structural performance
  • Understand how systems thinking can be used to understand complexity and facilitate resilience
  • Develop a knowledge of performance-based analysis methods and when to use them
  • Understand the need for integration across the construction industry and the role structural engineers can play in decision making when working beyond the codes

Intended for:

Practising civil and structural engineers who are keen to achieve resilience and robustness in structural design beyond the application of prescriptive codes of practice. It will also be of interest to those from other construction disciplines who wish to obtain a basic introduction to performance-based structural engineering and the concept and practical application of resilience in design practice.

Entry criteria

None.
