The first statutory code of practice for the seismic design of building
structures in Hong Kong will be released soon. This international symposium
aims at bringing the key researchers and practitioners in the field of
Earthquake Engineering locally and internationally to share with us the updated
knowledge of seismic analysis and design of building structures in regions of
low-to-moderate seismicity including Hong Kong.
one-day event includes presentations by nine distinguished speakers from
different parts of the world. Each of them will discuss about the fundamentals
and the recent advances in a specialised topic with strong emphasis on the
unique feature and requirements in regions of low-to-moderate seismicity.
Topics include seismic design philosophy and performance objectives, advanced
dynamic analysis, structural design at both member level and global level, as
well as the application of seismic protection systems.
