Concrete structures 2 & seismic design


Programme (detailed contents):

Calculation and design of buildings in seismic area according to Eurocode 8, design of beams, walls with and without openings, foundations, design project.

Calculation of structures in case of fire according the eurocodes: combinations of actions, behaviour of warm materials, design of columns, beams and slabs, verification on reinforcements, technology.

Technology of composite steel and concrete structures, benefits in case of fire, design of columns, beams and slabs according Eurocode 4.


Lectures, TD and project in earthquake engineering.



At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):

The principles of design for building structures under earthquake and under fire, the principles of design of composite steel and concrete structures


The student will be able to:

Design and check simple structures in case of fire, or built in seismic zone.

Write a calculation note and justify the structural elements.

Know the benefits of composite structures and know how to calculate the elements.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
