Traditionally, building design in Hong Kong is primarily focusing on the gravity and wind effects. Recent researches have proven that the associated risk from unexpected seismic attacks should not be underestimated. This webinar aims at providing audiences with an overview of the topic. From basic concepts and classical problems, to local specific issues and international practice. Audiences with any level of experience are expected to benefit from this webinar.
