In this lecture we will be presenting the most recent ground-motion model for the United Kingdom developed as part of a project funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering and in collaboration with Jacobs. This model will contribute towards a better characterisation (prediction) of earthquake induced ground shakings, which are a key input for the development of seismic hazard maps and for the seismic safety evaluation of critical infrastructure as nuclear power plants.

This talk will demonstrate how some of the datasets and models from the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Foundation might be useful to better prepare for field missions, and conversely, how field observations can be used to improve existing risk models. Some examples covering a recent World Bank project for Türkiye will be presented, as well as findings from a field mission to the 2023 M7.8/M7.5 Kahramanmaraş earthquakes.

This presentation aims to provide evidence on the potential of implementing an integrated, low-damage, resilient and sustainable structural and non-structural system. The talk will initially give an overview of damage-control technologies for both structural and non-structural components, 
including results from recent experimental and numerical simulations. The overarching goal is to underscore the imperative of enhancing safety levels for buildings through the development of integrated, multi-functional solution.
