Welcome to the website of the Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics (SECED). SECED was founded in 1969 to promote the study and practice of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics, including blast, impact, and other vibration problems. SECED is also concerned with the study of societal and economic ramifications of major earthquakes.


Election for SECED's Committee

The SECED Committee is the main body responsible for governing the affairs of the Society. The Committee is involved in all aspects of the life of the Society such as organising meetings, publishing newsletters and nominating suitably qualified individuals to other national and international governing bodies and committees. New members are elected to the Committee at the Annual General Meeting, which this year took place on 28 April. This year there were two candidates for one vacancy among the elected members on the Committee. We are pleased to confirm that Mark Scorer (Atkins) was re-elected to the committee after a close contest.


SECED is the British branch of both the International Association and the European Association for Earthquake Engineering. SECED is an Associated Society of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and is sponsored by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and The Geological Society.
