Stay up to date on the latest building practices in designing for earthquakes. Seismic Design or Earthquake-resistant construction refers to designing structures which can withstand Earthquakes. The Seismic Design of Buildings workshop primarily aims at familiarizing the participants with design of buildings and structures subject to seismic loading. Students will gain knowledge about the characteristics of seismic forces and the types of structural responses when subjected to these forces.
Currently, there are several design philosophies in earthquake engineering, making use of experimental results, computer simulations and observations from past earthquakes to offer the required performance for the seismic threat at the site of interest. The major objective of the workshop is to practically train participants about the design and analysis software used in Civil Engineering industry for developing earthquake resistant structures using earthquake simulation techniques.
The program is designed to take the participants through the technical concepts involved in Earthquake Engineering
The participants would practically work on analyzing and designing a seismic resistant building using an industry grade software
Various case studies and exposure to approach towards seismic resistant building design
Discussion about implementing the knowledge gained to develop good B.Tech/M.Tech Project
