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.

Course dates

Monday 6 June, 10:00-14:00 BST
Tuesday 7 June, 10:00-14:00 BST
Wednesday 8 June, 10:00-14:00 BST
Thursday 9 June, 10:00-14:00 BST

Learning outcomes

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

  • Identify situations where earthquake loading must be included in the design of structures and how to define this loading

  • Understand the basic principles of seismic design and select appropriate performance requirements for structures subjected to earthquake loads

  • Select an appropriate structural configuration for a building situated in a seismic zone

  • Analyse a building for seismic loading

  • Design and detail reinforced concrete structures

  • Have an appreciation of seismic design and detailing of steel and steel-concrete composite structures

  • Have an appreciation of seismic design of highway bridges

Intended for

Practising structural design engineers and consultants seeking guidance on seismic design of structures, graduates undertaking their Initial Professional Development, and students, researchers and academics with limited seismic design experience.

Entry criteria

Participants should be familiar with the principles of structural design and the basics of structural dynamics.
