Event description

Description

Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well-established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method. EC8 provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date set of design rules currently available and is now the single seismic design code in Europe. It represents a significant step forward in harmonising design and analysis of earthquake-resistant structures throughout Europe and potentially around the world.

Professor Costas Georgopoulos will deliver key advice and guidance on seismic design and analysis of structures to EC8. A clear and effective introduction is made to earthquake damage, causes and lessons learned. This is followed by the underlying principles of seismic behaviour, conceptual design and analysis. The principles are linked to the Code through worked examples and structured discussion. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete building structures although the concepts are widely applicable.
