Investigating the Behaviour & Design of Braced Steel Frames under Earthquake Loading

2.00am

Lectures

Public

Speaker: Professor Brian Broderick

Series: RCCES lectures

City's School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering's Research Centre for Civil Engineering Structures (RCCES) presents a lecture by Professor Brian Broderick, Trinity College Dublin.

Concentrically braced frames (CBFs) provide efficient earthquake resistance in steel structures: combining the stiffness and strength required for small, frequent earthquakes, with the potential for a dissipative response that ensures adequate performance during larger events. CBFs find wide application in a variety of civil engineering structures, including tall buildings and in energy infrastructure. Read more about the topic.

Professor Brian Broderick has published over 60 papers in international journals. He is Irish National Delegate to CEN TC250/SC8, responsible for the development of Eurocode 8 - the design code for earthquake resistant structures in Europe. Read more about Professor Broderick.
