The 3rd International SPONSE workshop brings together a cross-section of international researchers and industry practitioners to discuss ways of minimising the detrimental impact of seismic events on the performance of non-structural elements in built infrastructure.

The workshop will examine the latest research and best practice in the following general thematic areas:

  • Internal elements including walls and ceilings
  • Loss assessment and impacts
  • Building services and contents

Discussions may include topics such as lessons from Christchurch earthquakes, standards and codes, methods of design and construction, analysis and modelling and approaches to loss assessment.
