PERFORMANCE BASED STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF TALL BUILDINGS
Designing of Safer Infrastructure
Venue: Asian Institute of Technology | Thailand
Date: 1-2 June 2018
Time: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Innovative design that goes beyond the codes
With recent advances in computing and modeling tools, and with growing challenges in terms of increasing population, globalization, sustainability requirements, emerging technology, the practicing structural engineers and designers need to constantly develop their skills to design safer infrastructure and enhance the quality of life. The demand and complexity is rapidly increasing for built environment including accommodation, offices, and commercial areas to accommodate rapidly growing urban population. Cities and infrastructure of future will need to be denser, complex and taller.
These challenges require great expertise and computational capabilities in terms of using state-of-the-art nonlinear analysis procedures, latest computer modeling software and developing insight into the complex dynamic behavior of structures, that can enable the engineer to design building innovatively and go beyond the traditional building codes.
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 experts.
