Join the Victorian Building Authority's Principal Structural Engineer in the latest webinar of our Practitioner Education Series.

About the session:

The webinar addresses seismic detailing for residential and commercial buildings to improve performance and ensure safety in accordance with the National Construction Code. The webinar touches on historical earthquake events in Australia and the effects on buildings. It also summarises the regulatory framework for seismic provisions and emphasises their implementation.

The webinar will explain structural response of different buildings during seismic excitations. It will cover timber, masonry, steel and concrete buildings and their vulnerabilities. It will provide observations, lessons learnt, and advice for better seismic detailing that covers structural and non-structural components.
