Expected to remain current until at least 2026, this guidance presents simple design calculations for basic steel and concrete elements for buildings within the scope of BS EN 1998.

Primarily intended for application in areas of moderate/high seismicity for the majority of low/medium-rise, medium ductility class buildings (but also for use in the UK, where explicit consideration of seismic actions may be required) these examples provide simple design calculations for basic structural elements (steel and concrete) for most buildings within the scope of BS EN 1998.
 
Example 1 briefly introduces basic dynamics. Examples 2, 3 and 4 present the design of a reinforced concrete beam, column and shear wall respectively, while Examples 5–8 present the design of a steel beam, column, connection, and bracings respectively.
 
The examples offer design calculations that follow capacity design principles in BS EN 1998, and support the designer’s understanding of the code.

Seismic design of structures

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.
