Seismic Resistant Structures: Analysis and Design. I. Seismology and seismic response of structures and buildings. II. Design concepts of concrete buildings and design to codes of practice - 2nd & 4th December 2019

Hong Kong has been classified as a region of moderate seismicity. It is recognized from the national seismic intensity zoning map 1990 and the national seismic ground motion parameter zoning map 2001 that low-to-moderate earthquakes may occur in Hong Kong with peak ground acceleration (PGA) of 0.15g corresponding to a 10% probability of exceedance in 50 years. The seismic intensity VII with PGA of 0.15 g for all sites within Hong Kong may then be considered for typical structures. The 512 Wenchuan earthquake of 2008 and the 420 Lushan of 2013 in Sichuan, the 311 Tohoku earthquake of 2011 in Japan, the 425 Gorkha earthquake of 2015 in Nepal, and the recent strong earthquakes in the world have awakened the public of their potential exposure to earthquake-related hazards, as seismicity has not been explicitly considered in conventional structural design and construction with the exceptions of some lifeline infrastructures in Hong Kong.

The Buildings Department has been conducting a study on seismic design standards for buildings in Hong Kong since 2015. A new code of practice on the design of seismic resistant structures will be released by the HKSAR Government in the near future. These two one-day CPD courses are developed to provide practicing engineers with fundamental concepts of seismic engineering, a background necessary for understanding and performing seismic analysis and design of building structures, ability to recognize deficiencies of the current building design practice in Hong Kong, and basic skills to incorporate seismic resistant elements in future designs of concrete structures to improve the earthquake preparedness for the public in Hong Kong.
