This one-day, online course delivers key advice and guidance on seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, attendees 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

Intended for

  • Practicing structural and civil engineers seeking guidance on the application of Eurocode 8

  • Graduates undertaking their Initial Professional Development

  • Students, researchers and academics with limited seismic design experience

Speaker

Costas Georgopoulos Course tutor

Professor Georgopoulos 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-the-art structures in the UK (Trident Submarine Refitting Facility at Rosyth and Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station). Costas is also author of the IStructE’s Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8 manual.
