This article, based on the winning entry to the IStructE Excellence in Structural Engineering Education Award 2021, discusses innovative approaches implemented at Stellenbosch University, South Africa to develop technical competency in structural engineering and associated fields.
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 focusses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
Includes both 'Manual for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8' and the new, accompanying guidance 'Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8'.
