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.
• 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
