Online Seismic Structure Training

About The Course

This course provides a theoretical framework for understanding seismic assessment and retrofit for various structures. It will be delivered as a series of 4 lectures of 1.5-hour sessions over 1 day where you will learn the basics of static and dynamic nonlinear analysis.
Two software packages, SeismoBuild and SeismoStruct, which are dedicated to structural assessment and strengthening will be introduced.
On completion of the course, you will be able to apply a sound knowledge of various technologies for structural assessment under seismic loading.

Who Should Attend?

The course is intended for Engineers, Operations’ Managers, Applied Scientists and Technologists interested in design & structure under seismic loading. Engineers, Managers and Scientists involved in design, assessment and management of a wide range of engineering structures will also benefit from this course.
