Department: MSc Structural Engineering
Module Description: This module is intended as a design guide for engineers and advanced students with a sound knowledge of structural design who are not expert in seismic aspects of design. It provides the practicing engineer with an understanding of those aspects of the subject that are important when designing buildings in earthquake zone. Many of the principles discussed also apply to the design of non-building structures, such as bridges or telecommunications towers. European seismic code Eurocode 8 and US codes are discussed.
