Conference Topics

The STESSA Conference will enable researchers and practitioners to present and assess the results from recent research on minimization of the earthquake damage, on seismic retrofit, and on the collapse behavior of steel structures. In addition, numerous research projects on steel structures using recently-commissioned large-scale earthquake simulation facilities will be ready for dissemination. Main topics are listed as follows:

  • Advances in experimental testing
  • Advances in numerical modelling
  • Behaviour of materials, elements and systems
  • Bridges
  • Buckling restrained braces
  • Case studies
  • Codes, standards, design guides
  • Field observations and interpretations
  • Fabrication, construction, quality control
  • Low damage solutions
  • Mixed and composite structures
  • Structural control systems
  • Performance based design of structures
  • Post earthquake assessment and repair
  • Soil structure interaction effects
  • Vulnerable structure assessment and retrofit
