Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics
In this Young SECED evening talk, three engineers from both industry and academia will provide insights into the structural damages observed at the Groningen province, the Netherlands and present case studies of dynamic numerical analyses for structural assessment and retrofitting.
This half-day workshop introduces the technical background of a European project entitled Failnomore on the topic of progressive collapse. The workshop also delivers some practical recommendations, which will be presented together with an open-access design manual and design examples. The workshop covers the design of buildings for identified and unidentified threats, and the examples include steel and composite steel/concrete structures in seismic and non-seismic regions.
For a full synopsis, see the main page for the 17th Mallet-Milne Lecture.
In this Young SECED lunchtime talk, three speakers will address challenges concerning the development of next-generation tools for impact-based earthquake early warning, as well as studies on the reaction of users of the Earthquake Network app to an Earthquake Early warning in Peru and the societal perspective of EEW systems.
