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
- Learn about the latest research on seismic-resilient steel structures
- Appreciate how innovations in research transfer into practice
