Course Title: Seismic Design Concepts and How They Contribute to Resilience
Delivery Method: Live Online
Course Description: This two-hour course focuses on various seismic design concepts and how they contribute to structural resilience. The course explains structural dynamics and response, conventional seismic design objectives, U.S. building codes and standards, and ASCE 7 seismic design provisions.
Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to discuss the science of ground motions, the structural responses from both a single-degree-of-freedom system and a two-degree-of-freedom system, and the potential damages.
Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to analyze common hysteretic models and explain how hysteretic behavior makes a difference in a structure’s seismic response.
Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to discuss collapse prevention as the primary seismic design objective and utilize equations to calculate the probability of collapse and the annual probability of collapse.
Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to differentiate uniform hazard and uniform risk, utilize risk coefficient maps, and comply with related codes and methodologies (IBC, ASCE 7).
LUs: 2.0 LU Type: LU|HSWs.
Prerequisites: Experience with structural design
Advance Preparation: None
Program Level: Intermediate
Course Expiration Date: 03/27/2026
