Note:
Seismic Analysis and Design of Steel and Reinforced Concrete Buildings Course. To apply effectively the seismic provisions of the National Building Code of Canada NBCC10, structural engineers need a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of earthquake engineering including ground motion seismology, structural dynamics, concept of capacity design, inelastic behaviour of various materials, and seismic design and detailing. This course provides an opportunity to learn the basic principles and practices of analysis and design of earthquake-resistant design building structures. Static and dynamic analysis of buildings using advanced computer codes is presented. The course covers seismic design and detailing of steel and reinforced concrete buildings.
 
 
COURSE OBJECTIVE: 
To provide mastery of seismic analysis and design of buildings as well as a clear understanding of seismic provisions of the NBCC05.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 
Structural engineers, civil engineers, designers,consulting engineers and project engineers who need a thorough understanding of seismic design.
 
COURSE OUTLINE
• Welcome, Introduction, Workshop Preview, Learning Outcomes and the Assessment Method
• Earthquake Ground Motions Characteristics
• Response of a Single Degree of Freedom System
• Seismic Analysis of Multi Degrees of Freedom Structures
• Code Procedures for Earthquake Resistant Structures
• Seismic Design of Steel Buildings
• Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures
• Questions and Answers and Feedback to Participants on Achievement of Learning Outcomes
 
After participating in the course, you will be able to:
• estimate the probability and intensity of ground motions likely to
occur at a site, and their design implications
• perform seismic analysis of structures both manually and using computer tools
• use on your projects the concept of capacity design and structure ductility as well as the seismic design requirements of the NBCC05
• apply the basic principles of design and detailing of earthquake resistant steel and reinforced concrete buildings
