|Seismic Design of Structures I
|The following topics are covered: 1) origin and quantification of earthquake hazard; 2) seismic response of elastic and inelastic structures; 3) response history and response spectrum evaluation methods; 4) basis for seismic design codes; and 5) fundamentals of seismic design of structures. These topics are discussed in framework of performance-based seismic design.
|After successfully completing this course the students will be able to:
1. Explain the nature of earthquake hazard and risk.
2. Explain the seismic response of simple linear and nonlinear single- and multi-degree-of-freedom structural systems and quantify it using response time history and response spectrum approaches.
3. Apply design code provisions to size the structural elements in a lateral force resisting system of a typical frame building.
|This course initiates the series of two courses on seismic design of structures at ETHZ. Building on the material covered in the course on Structural Dynamics and Vibration Problems, the following fundamental topics are covered in this course: 1) origin and quantification of earthquake hazard; 2) seismic response of elastic and inelastic single- and multiple-degree-of-freedom structures; 3) response history and response spectrum seismic response evaluation methods; 4) basis for seismic design codes; and 5) fundamentals of seismic design of structures. These topics are discussed in framework of performance-based seismic design.
|Electronic copies of the learning material will be uploaded to ILIAS and available through myStudies. The learning material includes the lecture presentations, additional reading, and exercise problems and solutions.

|Prerequisites / Notice
|ETH Structural Dynamics and Vibration Problems course, or equivalent. Students are expected to be able to compute the response of elastic single- and multiple-degree-of-freedom structural systems in free vibration, as well as in forced vibration under harmonic and pulse excitation, to use the response spectrum method and to understand and be able to apply the modal response analysis method for multiple-degree-of-freedom structures. Knowledge of structural analysis and design of reinforced concrete or steel structures under static loads is expected. Familiarity with general-purpose numerical analysis software, such as Matlab, and structural analysis software, such as SAP2000, is desirable.
|Colloquium "Structural Engineering"
|B. Stojadinovic, E. Chatzi, M. Fontana, A. Frangi, W. Kaufmann, B. Sudret, T. Vogel
|Professors from national and international universities, technical experts from private industry as well as research associates of the Institute of Structural Engineering (IBK) are invited to present recent research results and specific projects. The colloquium is addressed to students, academics as well as practicing engineers.
|Become acquainted with recent research results in structural engineering.
|Risk Center Seminar Series
Number of participants limited to 50.
|A. Bommier, D. Basin, D. N. Bresch, L.‑E. Cederman, P. Cheridito, P. Embrechts, H. Gersbach, H. R. Heinimann, M. Larsson, W. Mimra, G. Sansavini, F. Schweitzer, D. Sornette, B. Stojadinovic, B. Sudret, U. A. Weidmann, S. Wiemer, M. Zeilinger, R. Zenklusen
|This course is a mixture between a seminar primarily for PhD and postdoc students and a colloquium involving invited speakers. It consists of presentations and subsequent discussions in the area of modeling and governing complex socio-economic systems, and managing risks and crises. Students and other guests are welcome.
|Participants should learn to get an overview of the state of the art in the field, to present it in a well understandable way to an interdisciplinary scientific audience, to develop novel mathematical models and approaches for open problems, to analyze them with computers or other means, and to defend their results in response to critical questions. In essence, participants should improve their scientific skills and learn to work scientifically on an internationally competitive level.

|Literature will be provided by the speakers in their respective presentations.
|Prerequisites / Notice
|Participants should have relatively good scientific, in particular mathematical skills and some experience of how scientific work is performed.
