SYNOPSIS

This content-rich workshop covers the seismic assessment and retrofitting of existing reinforced concrete (RC) building structures as per the Eurocode 8: Part 3. The presentation begins with the general overview of EC 8 on seismic design and assessment. Consideration on seismic basic design and principle to EC 8 will be covered briefly in the presentation with different procedures between seismic design and assessment explained.

The different methods of analysis (linear and nonlinear), including nonlinear static pushover and dynamic analysis, commonly used for seismic design and assessment of RC structures shall be discussed along with their advantages and disadvantages. There will be a brief description on performance-based engineering with guidelines on how to select the appropriate method of analysis. In addition, the approaches of modelling on different structural elements will also be highlighted.

Actual case studies of several strengthening projects with different techniques will be presented, and the criteria for the selection of the strengthening interventions strategy will be explained. The evaluation of different seismic retrofitting solutions in terms of their structural responses shall be thoroughly explained. An example to illustrate the assessment of a RC building using SeismoBuild software will be provided at the end of the workshop.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This workshop is suitable for practicing civil and structural engineers, graduate engineers, engineering students and academics who wish to enhance their knowledge and understanding on the seismic assessment and retrofitting of existing RC structures.
