Introduction to Earthquake Engineering
Web-based Training (WBT)
$0 Per Participant
130093W Introduction to Earthquake Engineering is a Web-based Training (WBT) prerequisite to the 3-day 130093A Displacement-Based LRFD Seismic Analysis and Design of Bridges Instructor-led Training (ILT). The participants will generally be notified to take the WBT about 1 month before the 130093A ILT session and must complete it before the start of Day 1 of the ILT. This WBT consists of 5 lessons including: Introduction to Earthquake Seismology (Lesson 1); Damages to Bridges due to Strong Motion (Lesson 2); Single Degree-of-Freedom (SDOF) Systems and Response Spectra (Lesson 3); AASHTO Design Ground Motion Characterization (Lesson 4); and Introduction to Geotechnical Hazards (Lesson 5).
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Describe basic concepts of plate tectonics and seismology
Explain fundamental concepts of modern seismic design
Identify parameters used to characterize earthquake ground motions
Recognize the steps employed in a probabilistic seismic hazard analysis
Characterize design ground motions in accordance with AASHTO
List the different types of geotechnical hazards
The target audience for this course includes bridge and geotechnical engineers with 0 to 20 years of experience that are preparing to attend the 130093A Instructor-led Training.
