Seismic Design of Structures to Eurocode 8 CPD
26 - 27 March 2015, 2 days
Venue: City University London, Northampton Square, London, EC1V 0HB
Organizer: City University London
This two-day course focusses on the seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8. The course is aimed at professional civil engineers interested in seismic design of structures with a focus on buildings and bridges. It consists of a total of 8 lectures and covers the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology, which are necessary for understanding the background of seismic design provisions of modern codes, as well as a number of selected advanced topics, such as seismic design of buildings and bridges to Eurocode 8 (for different ductility classes), and base isolation of structures. People having attended the course will be able to apply Eurocode 8 to the seismic design of buildings and bridges.
