As per available reports about 4 relavant Journals, 8 Conferences Proceedings and 3 upcoming Conferences are presently dedicated exclusively to Seismic retrofit and about 5 Open Access articles are being published on Sesismic retrofit.
Seismic retrofitting is the modification of existing structures to make them more resistant to seismic activity, ground motion, or soil failure due to earthquakes. With better understanding of seismic demand on structures and with our recent experiences with large earthquakes near urban centers, the need of seismic retrofitting is well acknowledged. for example. Retrofitting is one of the sub track under Earthquake resistance engineering structure track in OMICS group conference.Topics like: Structural Steel,Steel Frame Structure,Smart and Adaptive Structures are of interest.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope & Importance:
The retrofit techniques outlined here are also applicable for other natural hazards such as tropical cyclones, tornadoes, and severe winds from thunderstorms. Whilst current practice of seismic retrofitting is predominantly concerned with structural improvements to reduce the seismic hazard of using the structures, it is similarly essential to reduce the hazards and losses from non-structural elements. It is also important to keep in mind that there is no such thing as an earthquake-proof structure, although seismic performance can be greatly enhanced through proper initial design or subsequent modifications.Prior to the introduction of modern seismic codes in the late 1960s for developed countries (US, Japan etc.) and late 1970s for many other parts of the world (Turkey, China etc.), many structures were designed without adequate detailing and reinforcement for seismic protection. In view of the imminent problem, various research work has been carried out. State-of-the-art technical guidelines for seismic assessment, retrofit and rehabilitation have been published around the world - such as the ASCE-SEI 41and the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE)'s guidelines. These codes must be regularly updated; the 1994 Northridge Earthquake brought to light the brittleness of welded steel frames,
The construction industry of UAE witnessed construction contract awards to the tune of USD 40 billion in 2012, which is expected to increase to USD 50 billion by 2015, with bulk of the projects likely to be awarded over 2014 and 2015. Construction sector as a percentage of GDP of the UAE reached 10.5% in 2009 and 10.25% in 2011 while for 2015 and 2020 the sector’s contribution as a percentage of UAE GDP is projected to record 11.1% and 11.45% respectively. According to global market analysis, in 2014, the industry is expected to generate revenue of approximately 156.12 billion U.S. dollars. According to statistical record, in 2013 most of the regions including North America, South America, South Africa, MENA faced a growth of 4.5%, 5.0%, 6.0% and 5.5% respectively in construction Industry. That year revenue generated by global construction industry was around 124.69 billion USD.
