This webinar offers an outline of the current innovations in the design of seismic-resilient steel structures.

Moment-resistant steel frames, designed according to modern seismic codes, dissipate seismic energy through construction damage. This leads to extensive direct and indirect losses; the consequences of a seismic event.

To overcome this issue, alternative low-damage strategies (such as including friction dampers in beam-to-column connections of moment-resisting frames) have been subject to extensive research in recent years.

Our expert panel will:

  • Outline current research and practice innovations in seismic-resilient steel structure design

  • Identify best practice when designing moment-resilient frames and relate it to EC8 and BS requirements

  • Present the outcomes of several studies on novel technologies for low-damage and self-centering seismic connections for moment-resisting frames
     

Learning outcomes

  • Learn about the latest research on seismic-resilient steel structures

  • Appreciate how innovations in research transfer into practice
     

Speakers

Fabio Freddi is a Lecturer in Structural Design in UCL's Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering (CEGE). His research interests focus on the response of structures to extreme loads, including earthquake engineering and structural robustness, integrating structural modelling, computational techniques, probabilistic concepts and experimental results into a coherent framework for the performance evaluation and design of structures chasing the urgent needs of modern societies for resilience and sustainability.

Massimo Latour is a Researcher and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Salerno, where he is currently teaching “Steel Structures”, “Structural Rehabilitation” and “Structural Design”. His research topics focus on the seismic testing, analysis and design of steel structures, including the behaviour of components and dissipative elements. He is currently collaborating with Fabio Freddi's research group on the seismic behaviour of self-centring steel structures.
