The last decades many design codes for earth quake engineering have been (re)written and often with a fairly different approach compared to the previous generations. Modern key notions are performance based design, capacity design, behavior factors, push over analysis and the dynamic nonlinear Finite Element Method.
The emphasis of this course is to explain the essential meaning and background of these revised key notions, by exploring and clarifying:
In addition, attention will be given to the use of empirical evidence and the need for simplifications in design and assessment codes to keep things manageable.
The course will give essential information on:
Structural, Geotechnical and Architectural engineers of engineering offices, contractors and municipal authorities, working for the dutch- as well as the international market
