Open Class "Disseny Sísmic Basat en Acompliment" - UPC School

El dilluns 08-03-2021, a les 16:00, tindrà lloc una Open Class del postgrau en Disseny i Rehabilitació Sismo-Resistents d'Edificis i Ponts (En línia). El disseny sísmic basat en acompliment es considera el mètode més realista per comprendre el comportament sísmic de les estructures. Els codis de disseny més recents l'utilitzen implícitament per aconseguir un disseny segur per a les noves estructures i una avaluació fiable de les existents. En aquesta sessió explicarem la teoria i l'aplicació d'aquest mètode utilitzant models d'anàlisi no lineal. Es mostrarà un exemple real per analitzar l'avaluació sísmica i el reequipament de l'estructura d'una fàbrica existent. El ponent Bashar Alfarah. Enginyer estructural amb maestria i doctorat en enginyeria sísmica i dinàmica d'estructures. El professor Bashar té més de 12 anys d'experiència professional i acadèmica, en els quals ha estat responsable o ha estat involucrat en el disseny i avaluació sísmica d
