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.
Chanakya Arya’s fourth edition of Design of Structural Elements provides an introduction to concrete, steel, timber, masonry and composites, but this update seems to omit context around the structural elements, writes Chris O’Regan.
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'.
