Available until one month prior

Expected to remain current until at least 2028, 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.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, attendees should be able to:

  • Describe E/Q damages and identify their causes

  • Apply principles of conceptual design of E/Q-resistant structures in practice

  • Appreciate ground motions and geotechnical aspects in structural seismic design

  • Apply performance requirements and compliance criteria for various types of buildings

  • Select models and methods of analysis of buildings for seismic actions

  • Carry out equivalent static analysis of simple buildings, safety verifications, and simple structural element design and detail

Intended for

  • Graduate engineer

  • Mid-career engineer

  • ​Academic/Researcher

Trainer

Professor Costas Georgopoulos

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 sits on the BSI B/525/8 committee on EC8, chairs the IStructE Seismic & Dynamic Events Panel and he is also author of the IStructE’s Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8 manual.
