Requirements
  • Basics of building structural elements
  • Passion to learn basics & concepts of building behavior to resist earthquakes
Description

The intent of this course is to give you a steady clear idea about buildings behavior during earthquakes and how it's possible to enhance its behavior in resisting ground shaking.

The importance of this course is giving the engineer the capability to optimize the adopted structural system behavior and be able to understand from where came the standards' requirements.

Multiple concepts and important subjects will be covered in a straight forward manner, short videos and quizzes, in order to provide the essential information without wasting your time.
