Resilient design – overview
This topic examines some basic structural engineering principles and New Zealand’s building controls regulatory framework in the context of seismically resilient design.
Earthquake engineering – including working stress design
The Building Code – including Building Code Requirements, classified uses and seismic resilience of structures
Building control mechanisms – including building consents, compliance schedules and exempt building work
Compliance with the Building Code – including Verification Methods, Acceptable Solutions, alternative methods and Alternative Solutions
Verification Method B1/VM1 – including AS/NZS 1170 Structural design actions and NZS 4219:2009 Seismic performance of engineering systems in buildings
Building upgrades – including change of use and earthquake-prone buildings
