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 takes place on 28 April. This year there are two candidates for one vacancy among the elected members on the Committee. An election has been called to select one of the two candidates. All members should have received via email a ballot form with the names of the candidates and their biographical details. The ballot forms should be returned to the SECED Secretary (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by Tuesday 27 April 2021 before 4.30pm. Ballot forms received after this deadline will not be counted. If you are a member of SECED – either an individual member or a nominated representative of a corporate member – and you have not received the ballot form, please contact the SECED Secretary and request a form.


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.
