COURSE TITLE: Earthquake Design of Buildings and Structures: Beyond Design Codes
COURSE NO: S01-003
Earthquake Design of Buildings and Structures: Beyond Design Codes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the selection of structural systems, selection of the architectural/structural configurations and performance of nonstructural components during earthquakes.

 

Design codes provide no guidance on the selection of materials and systems used in buildings; they provide only criteria for their design once selected. For example, whether shear wall buildings or moment frame buildings are better suited for a particular soil condition is not specified in codes; it is up to the designer to make the selection and then design according to code requirements. The choice could affect building performance and cost, although both designs would be safe.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for civil and structural engineers interested in the earthquake design of buildings and structures.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Selection of structural systems for better seismic performance
  • Selection of architectural/structural configurations
  • Understanding the effect of nonstructural components such as masonry partitions and stairs on the earthquake response of buildings and structures
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Sections 5.1 to 5.4 (Pages 5-1 to 5-11) of the Federal Emergency Management Agency Report titled "Primer for Design Professionals: Communicating with Owners and Managers of New Buildings on Earthquake Risk (FEMA-389)".
