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.

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).
