6th Asia Pacific Forum

The 6th Asia Pacific forum will be held on Thursday 7 July 2011 at Griffith University, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

The theme for the one-day event is “Structural Engineering for Extreme Events” and will principally cover the effects of Fire, Wind, Earthquake, Tsunami and High Explosive Blast on structures. It is intended to look at pre-disaster work such as strengthening of structures and changes in loading that might be expected due to climate change; disaster events and structural performance during an event; and post disaster work such as how codes and standards are modified due to the forensic investigation and experience of extreme events.
