Online Seismic Assessment Training Course


This course provides a theoretical framework for understanding seismic design for various
structures. It will be delivered as a series of 8 lectures of 1.5 hour sessions over 2 days where
you will learn the basics of seismic design, dynamic analysis as well as code related design
to structures.
The Lecture includes Structural Response under dynamic loading. The basic design
principles in the relevant design guidance such as ASCE/SE14-16 will be introduced. Also
EC8 which is euro code 8:Design of structures for earthquake resistance will be introduced.
On completion of the course you will be able to apply a sound knowledge of various
technologies for checking response of structures under seismic loading.


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.

Dr. Feng Fu, Ph.D. MBA, CEng, FIStructE, FICE, FASCE, FHEA

Dr. Feng Fu is the Council Member of Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) in 2020 and
Chair for North Thames Regional Group of IStructE in 2020. He is an Associate Editor, Journal
of Performance of Constructed Facilities, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and
Associate Editor, Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers – Structures and Buildings. He
is a Chartered Structural Engineer, Fellow of Institution of Structural Engineers, Fellow of
American Society of Civil Engineering and Fellow of Institution of Civil Engineers.
Prior to joining academia, he worked for several world leading consultancy companies and was
involved in the design of extensive prestigious construction projects worldwide, such as the tallest
building in Western Europe, the Shard in London. He worked at advance analysis team in WSP
Group Ltd. London, followed his work as a Structural Engineer in Waterman Group Ltd London.
He also worked as a structural engineer for one of the best and the oldest design institute in China,
Beijing Institute of Architectural Design and Research (the designer of Beijing Olympic Games
Stadiums and Guardian list of seven wonders of the modern world, Beijing Daxing Airport) before
his study of PhD in UK. When he was doing his Master in Structural Engineering, he worked as a
research assistant in China Academy of Building research, worked on research projects funded by
National Natural Science Foundation of China.

He received his PhD in Structural Engineering from University of Leeds, MSc in software
Engineering from University of Oxford and MBA from University of Manchester. He obtained his
MSc and BSc in Structural Engineering from Beijing University of Technology respectively. Dr.
Fu has extensive research experience in the area of progressive collapse, structural fire analysis of
tall buildings and long span structures, Tensegrity structures and composite joints. He specialized
in advanced numerical modelling and developed several modelling programs using different
programming languages. He also carried out several full scale tests on composite joints. His recent
research has been focused on investigating the behaviour of high-rise buildings, bridges and
offshore structures under extreme loads such as blast and fire using advanced 3-D numerical
modelling techniques.

He has published more than 100 peer reviewed technical papers with a Google Scholar h-index 22.
He is also the reviewer for more than 40 international Journals. He is also the editorial board
member for three international journals, voting member for two design codes of ASCE. He is the
author of four books: Fu, F. (2018). Design and Analysis of Tall and Complex Structures, Elsevier.
Fu, F. (2016).Structural Analysis and Design to Prevent Disproportionate Collapse. CRC Press.
Fu, F. (2015). Advanced Modelling Techniques in Structural Design, Wiley; Fu, F. (2021) Fire
Safety Design for Tall Buildings. CRC Press
