UC Extension Course on Seismic Design Codes

Bridge designers and engineers can learn the most up-to-date methods for making bridges seismically safe in a two-day workshop at UC Berkeley Extension.

The workshop, "Seismic Analysis, Design, and Retrofitting of Bridges," will take place on March 29 and 30, 2000, with an optional half day of SEISAB software training on March 31. The workshop and software training will be held at 415 Davis Hall, University of California, Berkeley. The fee for the two-day workshop is $795. The half day of software training costs $50.

The workshop and software training will be conducted by Imbsen & Associates, a consulting firm with experience presenting courses on the seismic design of highway bridges for the Federal Highway Administration and other entities and organizations throughout the United States. Imbsen & Associates professionals will be joined by experts in earthquake engineering, soil dynamics, bridge design, and seismic retrofitting.
