Developing High-Performance Structural Systems for Seismic Applications

Date: January 22, 2020

Presenter: Prof. Tony T.Y. Yang, Ph.D., P.Eng., University of British Columbia, Vancouver

This seminar presented a novel design procedure named Equivalent Energy-based Design Procedure (EEDP) for fused structures in earthquake application. EEDP allows engineers to select their structure’s performance objectives at different levels of seismic shaking intensities. With this methodology, engineers can efficiently select their structural member sizes to achieve the desired structural period, strength and deformation with simplified hand calculation and without iteration.
