Introduction

This content-rich workshop covers the seismic assessment and retrofitting of existing reinforced concrete (RC) building structures as per the Eurocode 8: Part 3. The presentation begins with the general overview of EC 8 on seismic design and assessment. Consideration on seismic basic design and principle to EC 8 will be covered briefly in the presentation with different procedures between seismic design and assessment explained.   The different methods of analysis (linear and nonlinear), including nonlinear static pushover and dynamic analysis, commonly used for seismic design and assessment of RC structures shall be discussed along with their advantages and disadvantages. There will be a brief description on performance-based engineering with guidelines on how to select the appropriate method of analysis. In addition, the approaches of modelling on different structural elements will also be highlighted.   Actual case studies of several strengthening projects with different techniques will be presented, and the criteria for the selection of the strengthening interventions strategy will be explained. The evaluation of different seismic retrofitting solutions in terms of their structural responses shall be thoroughly explained. An example to illustrate the assessment of a RC building using SeismoBuild software will be provided at the end of the workshop.    

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able: 1.Understand seismic assessment procedures according to Eurocode 8: Part 3. 2.Understand the different analytical techniques in the seismic assessment of RC structures. 3.Evaluate the seismic performance of a RC building structure using a commercial software    

Trainers

Dr Ehsan Nikbakht received a Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering from Islamic Azad University of Iran (IAU), Master and PhD of Engineering in Structural Engineering from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. his PhD thesis was entitled with numerical and experimental investigation of post-tensioned precast segmental columns with self-centring system for bridges in seismic regions. He joined Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS in 2015. His teaching and research involvements are in the areas of Structural Engineering. He has authored several technical papers in the areas of reinforced concrete and earthquake engineering. He is a member of several national and international professional organizations and he served as a reviewer for a number of International journals in Structural and Earthquake Engineering discipline such as Journal of Structural Engineering, ASCE; Bulletin of Earthquake Engineering; and Structure and Infrastructure Engineering. Ir. Dr. Teo Wee is currently an Associate Professor in Civil Engineering at Heriot Watt University Malaysia. He received his BEng degree and PhD in Civil Engineering from the Queen’s University of Belfast, UK. He practised as structural engineer for several years in civil and structural consultancies in the UK. He was involved with many building structural designs as well as bridge assessment projects.   He is currently the corporate member of the Institute of Concrete Technology UK (MICT), Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology UK (MIMarEST) and the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (MIEM). He is a registered Professional Engineer (PEng) with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and Chartered Engineer (CEng) with the Engineering Council UK.
