-Description and comparison of methods of analyses and design according to Eurocode 8 ar different levels of protection. -Explanation of procedure of the Performance Based Earthquake Engineering and its differences to earthquake-proof design according ro EC 8, also taking into account methods of representing the uncertainty of seismic direction. -Description of composite wall systems and mode of action of dissipative mechanisms within them. -Design of typical examples of structures comprising composite wall systems. Dimensioning of resisting elements by means of preliminary design rules according to EC 8. If a behaviour factor is not available, use of static non-linear analyses. -Performance of Incremental Dynamic Analysis of the previously dimensioned static systems in order to obtain an overview of structural performance at different levels of seismicity. Synthetic accelerograms are to be derived from spectra proposed in EC 8. -Evaluation of the rules adopted in the preliminary design of the composite wall systems highlighting critical aspects related to ductility connection demands ans ductility/stiffness demand at different storeys. Recommendations for consideration of these critical aspects in preliminary design.
