Seismicity and Structure of Subducting Slabs
Dr T Craig, Dr S Rost
7 January 2019
This project aims to understand the distribution of seismicity associated with internal deformation in shallow subducting slabs. Subduction zones are well known to host the largest and most damaging earthquakes, but also a wide variety of smaller events.
The application of Eurocode 8 Part1 around the world
Prof C Georgopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method.
