It is also being considered by various countries for adoption into their local codes.

This course is delivered by Professor Ian Robertson from University of Hawaii at Manoa, lead author of ASCE 7-16, who will provide an overview of the new tsunami design provisions, and examples on how to use these in the design of coastal buildings. 

This will be followed by new research developments in tsunami engineering made by UK researchers at UCL EPICentre, HR Wallingford and London South Bank University. Special rates are available for Students, SECED members and Early Bird Registration
