Basics of Earthquake Engineering, Seismology & Seismic Risks

Requirements

  • Structural analysis and physics in a basic level..

This course, includes the basics of earthquake engineering, seismic analysis methods, seismology and seismic risks of built environments.

 

In this course, you will learn about:

 

1- Seismology, earth structure, and layers and plate tectonics and continent movements which are the main cause of earthquakes. After that, I will focus on faults and different types of the faults that can cause damage.

2- How scientists record the earthquakes and different seismic waves which are very important for earthquake engineers.

3- How to find the earthquake epicentre and what are the different seismic scales.

4- World’s seismicity followed by the phenomena during and after the earthquakes.

5- Seismograph parameters and Gutenberg Richter law.

6- How to calculate earthquake return period

7- Earthquake response spectrum.

8- All the seismic analysis methods of structures such as equivalent static analysis, response spectrum analysis and time history analysis.

9- Seismic risk parameters and how to reduce these risks.

10- The impacts of the built environments and humans and the economic aspect of earthquakes.

11- Different mitigation measures in order to reduce earthquake risk.

 

By the end of this course, you will get a deep understanding of earthquake engineering, seismic analysis methods, seismology, and seismic risks of built environments.
