Introduction to the Changes in the Seismic Provisions of the 2015 National Building Code of Canada
After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:
- Recognize inelastic behaviour and ductility of structures
- Have an introduction to the code procedures to calculate seismic loads on different structures
- Identify the main difference between NBCC 2010 and 2015 seismic provisions
The National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) has evolved extensively over the years to develop a better understanding of lateral loads by learning from the damage that occurred due to significant earthquakes and from a large number of research done. This webinar provides an introduction to the significant changes in the seismic design provisions that have taken place between NBCC 2010 and NBCC 2015.
The webinar will highlight the 2015 and 2010 NBCC differences in determining seismic hazard, site effect factors, higher mode effects, and seismic base shear. The concepts and theory are explained thoroughly with conceptual examples, with no full numerical example due to time restraints.
Webinar Outline :
- Inelastic behaviour and ductility
