By the end of the course, attendees should be able to:
Understand the dynamic analysis of buildings
Carry out the dynamic analysis of a 2DOF frame by hand
Appreciate the principles of conceptual design of E/Q-resistant structures
Describe the provisions of Eurocode 8
Apply the performance requirements and compliance criteria of Eurocode 8
Carry out building element design to Eurocode 8 by hand
Practicing structural and civil engineers seeking guidance on the application of Eurocode 8
Graduates undertaking their Initial Professional Development
Students, researchers and academics with limited seismic design experience
Attendance to Eurocode 8: an introduction to seismic design of buildings is strongly recommended
In alternative, for direct entry to this advanced course, it is expected that attendees have some experience in dynamic and seismic analysis
Professor Georgopoulos is Chair of Structural Engineering Practice at Kingston University London. He is also a practising engineer with many years’ unique multi-sector experience in seismic design such as conventional buildings in Greece and state-of-the-art structures in the UK (Trident Submarine Refitting Facility at Rosyth and Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station). Costas is also author of the IStructE’s Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8 manual.
Dr Hau is a Senior Lecturer with the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Awarded the NUS President Graduate Fellowship in 2002 his PhD thesis focused on far-field effects of long-distance earthquake tremors from Sumatra to buildings in Singapore. Kong is a practicing qualified engineer who specializes in Buildings & Infrastructure Projects (including Bridges) with more than 15 years of experience.

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 one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This one-day, online course delivers key advice and guidance 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.
This one-day, online course examines changes between BS 5950 and Eurocode 3. The emphasis is on buildings and the provision of general rules for buildings of EN 1993-1-1 and design of joints to EN 1993-1-8.
This one-day, online advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
This one-day, online course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2.
This two-day, online course extends the principles developed in the Understanding Structural Behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computer output and member sizing.
This course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations. It is tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
