Available until one month prior

Expected to remain current until at least 2028, this advanced one-day online course delivers practical advice through the use of worked examples on dynamic analysis, conceptual design for earthquake resistance and seismic design of structural elements to Eurocode 8. Emphasis is placed on concrete and steel buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you 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 earthquake 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

Intended for

  • Graduate engineer

  • Mid-career engineer

  • ​Academic/Researcher

Entry criteria

  • 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

Trainers

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.

Dr Kong Kian Hau

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. He is a practicing qualified engineer who specializes in Buildings & Infrastructure Projects (including bridges) with more than 15 years of experience. He is co-author of the IStructE’s Examples for the seismic design of steel and concrete buildings to Eurocode 8.
