Throughout history we have seen the devastating effects of earthquakes in high seismic regions across the world. Recently, in Italy, Chile, Nepal and Indonesia, earthquakes with large magnitudes have caused serious loss of life and severe damage to structures, making everyday living extremely difficult. Risks also arise from tsunamis, seen from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, initiating a global response to reduce hazards in nuclear power plants. The economic and life losses associated with earthquakes are mostly related, directly or indirectly, to damage of buildings and infrastructure. Population growth and poorly built housing are among the factors which have increased vulnerability to disasters following earthquakes. Seismic resilient infrastructure and risk reduction in developing countries are very important to reduce both the long term and short term natural hazards.
This conference will bring together experts from academia and industry in the field of earthquake and geotechnical engineering, providing the opportunity to share and discuss their work and experiences with a focus on seismic design and analysis of foundations as well as other structures.
The conference invites papers on all aspects of the design and fabrication of light-weight structures. The various themes are:
The Programme will include invited papers whose aim will be to present the main issues relevant to the above themes and application areas, thus providing additional impetus for an open exchange of ideas.
Abstracts of about 300 words on any of the above topics are invited by the 31st July 2017. Upon review by the Technical Advisory Panel, notification will be given by the 31st September 2017.
Abstracts should be sent to Prof. P. K. Das. View contact details
