Unit Code: CEB804

Unit Name: Resilient Design of Structures

Description: Most of the countries are severely affected due to natural disasters especially earthquakes and cyclones. Engineers are required to design structures which are resilient to the natural disasters such as earthquakes and cyclones. You will learn how to design high rise structures subjected wind load, seismic loads and structures exposed to cyclone. You will be well conversant with various codal provisions for the design of structures for the forces of wind, seismic and cyclone. You will understand the causes and effect of earthquake on structures. You will learn how to design masonry and RC structures to the earthquake forces as per the AS/NZ standards of practice.
