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 fourth of a series of six courses that focuses on seismic mitigation. Each part may be taken as an individual course. This 2021 edition is a substantial update of the original Seismic course first published in 2017.
