Seismic Design of Steel Structures - CI9-STR-21
- To introduce the students to the fundamental concepts and principles required for the seismic design of steel structures.
- To enable the student to develop an understanding of the seismic behaviour of steel members, connections and systems under typical earthquake loading conditions. This knowledge can then be applied in practical earthquake resistant design of common forms of steel structures according to modern codified regulations, with particular emphasis on the European seismic design code, Eurocode 8.
Applied Dynamics - CI4-436
To introduce students to analysis techniques and design strategies that may be applied in order to assess the effects of extreme dynamic loadings and to design structures to most appropriately mitigate their effects. While the analysis techniques and design philosophies are often applicable to generic extreme loadings, the aim of the module is to focus upon methods most appropriate for seismic analysis and design.
