Seismic Mitigation Part III: Design for Better Seismic Response

Format: CE Course
CE Info: 1.50 HSW LU
Contact Info: Customer Service (

While the traditional approach to seismic mitigation focused on strengthening building resistance, in recent times more advanced techniques have tended to focus on reducing the level of earthquake-related stress placed on buildings. Through the use of building case examples, this course explores how architects can design for better seismic mitigation. Also presented is a review of a number of common design options available to improve seismic response, including bracing, moment-resisting frames, and pierced shear walls. This is the third course in a series of five courses on seismic mitigation. Each part may be taken as an individual course.
