This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, attendees 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

  • Students, researchers and academics with limited seismic design experience

Speakers

Agathoklis Giaralis Course tutor

Dr Giaralis is the Director of the Research Centre for Civil Engineering Structures at City, University of London (CUoL). His research output documented in over 90 peer-reviewed articles are in structural dynamics and earthquake engineering with a focus on probabilistic seismic analysis methods and on vibration control devices for high seismically performing structures.

Konstantinos Daniel Tsavdaridis Course tutor

Konstantinos Daniel Tsavdaridis is Professor of Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering at City, University of London (CUoL). His research is centred around steel and steel-concrete composite structural systems, and he has published over 160 peer-reviewed articles. He specialises in the design of seismic resistant connections, and he has performed full and large-scale experiments and advanced computational modelling.

Panagiotis Mergos Course tutor

Dr Panagiotis Mergos is Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering and the Programme Director of the MSc in Civil Engineering Structures at CUoL. He has worked for 18 years in seismic design and assessment of structures as a researcher and as a consultant and he is panel member of the UK Mirror Group MG2 developing the next integration of Eurocode 8, Part 1.
