A SEMINAR FOR EVERY PRACTICING ENGINEER - BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN RESEARCH AND PRACTICE

Performance-based design is a major shift from traditional structural design concepts and represents the future of earthquake engineering. The procedure provides a method for determining acceptable levels of earthquake damage. Also, it is based on the recognition that yielding does not constitute failure and that preplanned yielding of certain members of a structure during an earthquake can actually help to save the rest of the structure. In this technology-packed seminar, Ashraf will present the theory and practical application of nonlinear analysis and performance-based design in terms and analogies that are very familiar to the practicing structural engineer. Attendees will leave the seminar empowered with a clear understanding of this new technology.

Computers and Structures, Inc (CSI), in collaboration with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), the Asian Center for Engineering Computations and Software (ACECOMS), and AIT Consulting (AITC), is inviting all engineers, architects, and executives and managers in building industry and public infrastructure to attend the biggest and highly-informative performance-based design seminar in this region.
