The aim of this joint workshop between:

  • University of Bristol
  • University of Washington
  • University of California Berkeley; and
  • Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Centre (PEER)

is to share the latest advances in computational techniques in modelling nonlinear behaviour of structural systems under extreme loading. The event will bring researchers from the US and the UK/EU together to exchange ideas and explore opportunities for future collaboration.

Additionally, there is also an opportunity for some people who are currently using or have used OpenSees in their research to present their work in one of the research presentation sessions. Areas of interests for research presentations include topics related to bridges, steel and concrete structures, modelling fire and hybrid simulation.

Poster presentations

There is also an opportunity for PhD/MSc students who wish to bring a poster to display their research projects. Areas of interest for poster presentations include topics related to nonlinear behaviour of structural systems under extreme loading (experimental and numerical), seismic risk assessment, dynamic soil/structure interaction and multiple hazard modelling. We will provide A0 size poster boards.

If you are planning to participate in a poster session and/or a research presentation session you will need to send us a 250 word abstract.

Please send your intention to participate in these sessions together with your abstract to by Friday 16 May 2014. The abstract should describe the background of the project, the methodology employed and the results. Please make sure that you include your name, affiliation and contact details of the authors in your abstract. The confirmation of the acceptance of the research presentations and posters will be sent to the authors by Friday 30 May. 


The event is free but to register please visit online registration.  The registration deadline is Friday 30 May 2014.
