Earthquake Safe Communities in Nepal

Training on Non-Linear Push Over Analysis and Non-Linear Kinematic Analyses begins in Lalitpur

A training on Non-Linear Push Over (NLPO) Analysis and Non-Linear Kinematic Analyses (NLKA) training has begun today Monday, April 21, 2019 at NSET training hall in Lalitpur.

The 9-day training, organized by Arup International, one of the consortium partners of DFID-funded "Nepal Safer School Project (NSSP)" together with NSET, Save the Children and Crown Agent, is being participated by Structure Engineers and Civil Engineers, who are experienced in retrofit design, from NSET and Earthquake Safety Solutions (ESS).

The training will be a combination of presentations, demonstrations, applications & field visits. Arup International, which has extensive experience in the use of such non-linear analyses (both NLPO and NLKA), organized the training with the objective that it can transfer know-how to NSET which can be beneficial during the execution of the NSSP.

Apart from that the participant will receive a training on the use of 3Muri, Porcine and supporting spreadsheets; enables to assess few buildings (the blocks which have been selected for the pre-pilot) with Arup in order to have assistance on the understanding of the procedure and the software packages and helps to gain the capability to use these methods and apply during future design cycles of NSSP.

It has been expected that more reliable and less conservative (compared to linear analysis procedures) seismic assessment and potential seismic retrofit design will be achieved by applying this methodology, which in the end will directly affect the total cost of the seismic retrofit of the buildings.
