Task Group 1.1

Improving Seismic Resilience of Reinforced Concrete Structures

Mission Statement/Objectives
Provide a platform to exchange knowledge and provoke understanding in earthquake resilient design, vulnerability, and strengthening techniques for existing reinforced concrete structures.

Scope & Limitation
TG1.1 is focused on improved earthquake resilient structural design and on seismic strengthening and retrofitting strategies aimed towards earthquake resistant reinforced concrete structures. The main scope of this task group is to collect and evaluate codes for the design of ‘new’ earthquake resistant reinforced concrete structures and to also develop practical guidelines for the design of strengthened elements and structures.

Expected Project Output
  • To establish advice and support activities for the mitigation and reduction of seismic hazard
  • To organise special sessions and workshops, special issues, and to produce reports which could be considered for publication as SED

Start Date:
October 2018
Target Date of Completion: October 2022
