Structural Evaluation and Retrofitting of RC Building for Earthquake Resistance Workshop

AIT, Thailand - With recent fatal earthquakes throughout the world, this workshop is indeed timely as it covers various aspects of how buildings withstand the disaster.

The Asian Center for Engineering Computations and Software (ACECOMS) established in 1995 is a regional level, non profit organization located at the School of Engineering and Technology (SET) building, Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand. The prime mission of the Center is to provide an impetus to the research in engineering computations and development of quality computer software tools for engineering applications, their widespread promotion and training on their effective use.

ACECOMS continues to organize series of seminars and workshops on various aspects of Computer Aided Analysis and Design of Structures. Such courses are the need of all those who wish to advance their technical knowledge with current technology and share the professional experience with others.

To provide another such opportunity ACECOMS is organizing workshop as follows:
