December 2015, Australia
The Second International Conference on Performance-based and Life-cycle Structural Engineering (PLSE 2015) jointly organized by the School of Civil Engineering, The University of Queensland and the Research Institute for Sustainable Urban Development (RISUD), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University was held in Brisbane, Australia from 9-11 December 2015.
This conference series was launched to provide an international forum for scientific exchanges in the areas of Performance-based and Lifecycle Structural Engineering within the context of sustainable urban development.
AIT Consulting (now AIT Solutions), Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) participated in the conference through Engr. Thaung Htut Aung, who delivered a presentation on “Effect of Using Performance-based Approach for Seismic Design of Tall Building Diaphragms”, he co-authored together with Dr. Naveed Anwar, Engr. Jose A. Sy, and Engr. Mir Shabir Talpur.
Performance-based design (PBD) of structures is one of AITS’s signature services. PBD is an advanced simulation approach that determines the behavior of structures or buildings against hazards such as earthquakes.
