Seismic Analysis and Design of Steel and Reinforced Concrete Buildings Using NBCC 15

21 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Estimate the probability and intensity of ground motions likely to occur at a site and their design implications
  • Perform seismic analysis of structures both manually and using computer tools
  • Use on your projects the concepts of capacity design and structure ductility as well as NBCC15 seismic design requirements
  • Apply the basic principles of design and detailing of earthquake resistant steel and reinforced concrete buildings

To effectively apply the seismic provisions of the National Building Code of Canada NBCC 15, structural engineers need a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of earthquake engineering, including ground motion seismology, structural dynamics, concept of capacity design, inelastic behaviour of various materials, and seismic design and detailing. This course provides an opportunity to learn the basic principles and practices of analysis and design of earthquake-resistant building structures.

The course covers seismic design and detailing of steel and reinforced concrete buildings. Static and dynamic analysis of buildings using advanced computer codes is also presented.

Course Outline

  • Earthquake ground motions characteristics
  • Response of a single degree of freedom system
