Earthquake Design Considerations for Non-Residential Buildings
This online engineering PDH course discusses earthquake design considerations in non-residential type buildings. It identifies specific design issues, performance expectations and requirements associated with each of the following six occupancy types:
- Commercial office facilities
- Retail commercial facilities
- Light manufacturing facilities
- Healthcare facilities
- School facilities
- University facilities
It also provides examples of performance of these types of buildings in past earthquakes and specific vulnerabilities.
This 4 PDH online course is intended for civil and structural engineers and architects interested in gaining a better understanding of earthquake design considerations for different types of buildings.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
