ADV025: Earthquake Engineering


The Earthquake Engineering course has been developed to deliver a sound understanding of earthquakes and their impact on structural design. It focuses on the principles of building design that resist lateral and cyclical loads on built structures. This is underpinned by providing an understanding of different material behaviours under earthquake loads, and design and construction aspects relevant to the different materials. The achieve this background is provided on earthquake behaviour and how ground movement is transposed on and dissipated in structures. While the course covers highly technical engineering concepts, it does so in easy to follow 'plain English' and bearing in mind the impact of it all on building compliance from both consenting and inspection perspectives.

Modules Cover:

  • Basics of seismology
  • Seismic structural response
  • Structural mechanics and principles of seismic design theory
  • Seismic features of building design, including structural detailing (beams, columns, walls, frames, diaphragms)
  • Non-structural elements
