Main topics: 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. 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 the Bulgarian and the European standards relating to criteria for regularity and ductility of structures. Typical examples shall be discussed and critical analysis of the architectural and construction decisions shall be made. After a successful completion of the course, students acquire basic knowledge and practical skills to design constructions in seismic areas.
