The course introduces students to the basic concepts of the modern engineering seismology on nature of earthquakes and their effects on buildings and engineering facilities. It discusses factors determining the seismic risk to a territory and the seismic vulnerability of buildings. Terms like “mass”, “stiffness”, “damping” and others associated with the dynamic response of structures under earthquake are considered. Students are introduced to the basic concepts and rules for a composing and detailed design with a view to ensure a favourable seismic behaviour of buildings and facilities. Emphasis is placed on specific productions of Eurocodes System relating to criteria for regularity and ductility of structures. Typical examples are shown and critical analysis of the architectural and construction decisions is made. Students become acquainted with some innovative technologies for seismic construction as seismic isolation, damping systems. After a successful completion of the course, students acquire basic knowledge and practical skills to work in a team with construction engineers in the design of buildings in seismic areas.
