Certified CPD by Pakistan Engineering Council

19-20 April 2018

University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore, Pakistan

This two-day event (international seminar and hands-on training workshop) aims to provide an opportunity to practicing engineers, structural designers and researchers to interact, learn and gain/exchange experience about the state-of-the-art prevailing use of performance-based approach for the design and assessment of tall buildings with various international speakers from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and University of Engineering and Technology (UET).

20-21 April 2018

NED University of Engineering and Technology (NED UET), Karachi, Pakistan

On the first day of event, experts will discuss latest structural design philosophies and performance-based design procedure, and will provide an account of recent developments and trends in the modeling, analysis and performance evaluation of high-rise buildings with emphasis on various issues, challenges and opportunities related to Pakistan. Based on practical experience obtained from the detailed structural analysis and design of a large number of high-rise buildings, experts will also share some important insights into the nonlinear and dynamic behavior of buildings and will provide useful recommendations for an effective design and enhanced structural performance against wind and earthquake loads.
