The second generation of structural Eurocodes is set to be released two decades after the first iteration.
This talk will focus on changes in seismic design and assessment, emphasizing a further step towards displacement-based methods, the increasing use of nonlinear models and analysis, and the thoroughly revised approach to safety.
Some critical insight will also be provided on the code-making process, that involved hundreds of actors over several years with the mandate to update one of the fundamental components of the EU single market.
University of Rome Sapienza
Paolo is a professor of structural design and earthquake engineering at Sapienza University of Rome. He received his MSc from University of California Berkeley and his PhD from Sapienza.
His research and consulting activities focus on structural seismic reliability of new and existing structures, as well as on risk and resilience of structural and infrastructural (networked) systems.
In the last eight years he has been involved in code-drafting activity for CEN, the European Committee for Standardization (Eurocodes) and fib, the International Federation of Structural Concrete (Model Code 2020).
In this lecture the Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering will be presenting the most recent ground-motion model for the United Kingdom developed as part of a project funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering and in collaboration with Jacobs.
A five session course delivered by industry experts to develop in-depth knowledge of health, safety, and welbeing in civil engineering within the UK.
Digital transformation is crucial for sustainable workplaces in construction. BIM professionals will share the impact of digital transformation on sustainable workplace design, government policies promoting BIM adoption, and real-life examples of its benefits.
