This resource features two case studies. They describe how engineers engaged with the local community following the earthquake of 2015.
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.
This course demonstrates how significant blast resilience and resistance is possible with careful design, planning and detailing of a structure.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers key advice using worked examples on the 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.
