This 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, 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

Intended for

Structural and civil practising 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.
