The Aftermath Of Disaster In Christchurch | Christchurch
March 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Part of the Christchurch 10 years on event series.
Join the Canterbury Branch, in the TSB Space, for a presentation on repairing, strengthening and creating new hope by Helen Trappitt.
This presentation was first given virtually to ASEC2020 (the Australian Structural Engineering Conference) and focuses on the post-earthquake reinstatement (either completed or ongoing) of five selected buildings in Christchurch covering a broad range of structural forms and construction methods.
The evolution and engineering design of several large-scale public artworks that the author has been involved with will be explained.
The IStructE award winning new Central Library-Tūranga (the venue for the event) will be presented as an exemplar of modern resilient technologies used by structural engineers now turning to performance based low-damage design.
