By the end of the course, attendees should be able to:
Identify situations where earthquake loading must be included in the design of structures and how to define this loading
Understand the basic principles of seismic design and select appropriate performance requirements for structures subjected to earthquake loads
Select an appropriate structural configuration for a building situated in a seismic zone
Analyse a building for seismic loading
Design and detail reinforced concrete structures
Appreciate seismic design and detailing of steel and steel-concrete composite structures and highway bridges

Dr Giaralis is the Director of the Research Centre for Civil Engineering Structures at City, University of London (CUoL). His research output documented in over 90 peer-reviewed articles are in structural dynamics and earthquake engineering with a focus on probabilistic seismic analysis methods and on vibration control devices for high seismically performing structures.
Dr Panagiotis Mergos is Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering and the Programme Director of the MSc in Civil Engineering Structures at CUoL. He has worked for 18 years in seismic design and assessment of structures as a researcher and as a consultant and he is panel member of the UK Mirror Group MG2 developing the next integration of Eurocode 8, Part 1.
Dr Miguel Bravo-Haro is a Lecturer in Sustainable and Structural Engineering in the department of Civil Engineering at CUoL. His areas of research span from earthquake and seismological engineering, digital infrastructure and condition monitoring to data-driven and structural health monitoring. He has worked on applications of data-driven algorithms for early damage detection of railway bridges, development of low-cost sensors for structural monitoring in seismic regions and probabilistic methods applied to engineering problems.

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.
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 course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This course is designed to provide structural engineers with a greater understanding of fire safety, key legislation, and the principles of risk analysis in order to ensure that adequate structural performance in fire is achieved. Participants will examine case studies of structural and non-structural failures as a result of fire.
This course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2. Participants will be introduced to concrete material properties and learn about designing for durability and fire.
This course equips practicing engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse. The course covers designing buildings of Class 1 – 2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
