JEA Role in Risk Disaster Management Training and building capacity of Jordanian engineers and sectors Checking & Auditing the Design Co-operation with SDC
Co-operation with SDC • Translation and adaptation of Bachman publication. • Steel Reinforcement Detailing Manual for buildings.
Results - Needs • The awareness of the seismic risk, the needs for good preparedness and mitigation measures must be raised up among which and of most important ones is the design of buildings to resist the earthquake forces. • But it seam's that the lack of guides and publications in Arabic language, which help engineers and designers in implementing the Code requirements to design buildings to resist seismic hazards, forms an obstacle in rising up the awareness of using this code to the needed level to help in the mitigation of earthquake hazards as expected.
Seismic Design of Buildings Translation and Adaptation of Bachmann Publication SCOPE OF THE PROJECT • The scope of this project is to translate the publication named "Seismic Conceptual Design of Building – Basic Principles for Engineers, Architects, building owners and authorities" by Hugo Bachmann to Arabic Language.
What is this document?Seismic Conceptual Design of Buildings – Basic principlesfor engineers, architects, building owners,and authorities. by Hugo Bachmann 1. This document offers a broad out line of the art of designing earthquake resistant building. It describes basic principles guiding the seismic design of structures. These principles govern primarily the conceptual design and the detailing of the structural elements and non-structural elements of the building. 2. The basic principles are intentionally simple . Calculations and detailed design are only marginally introduced. 3. The outlined principles are applicable to new buildings . But , it is quite clear that they may also used for the evaluation and possible upgrading of existing buildings .
JEA Steel Reinforcement Detailing Manual for buildings
الدليل الإرشادي لتفاصيل فولاذ التسليح الإنشائي للمباني STEEL REINFORCEMENT DETAILING manual FOR buildings
الهدف من إعداد الدليل: توفير وثيقة عملية ارشادية في الخرسانة الإنشائية والتي يمكن استخدامها لتفسير تعليمات المهندسين المصممين على شكل مخططات وجداول يمكن استخدامها للتواصل مع الموقع. Purpose of the Guide:Prepare Guide for the structural engineers that provides designers with the mechanisms and norms to help them to increase the vurlnability design.
Resources And Codes • Main Source For Guide: “Standard Method For Detailing Structural Concrete – published by the Institution Of Structural Engineers, UK – last edition”

JEA • WHO SHOULD BENEFIT • The purpose of preparing this manual is to benefits the following positions; • 1- Civil @ Structural engineers • 2- Architects • 3- Quantity surveyors • 4- Graduate @ post graduate students in engineering colleges • 5- Draftsmen @ foremen
Future planned Cooperation JEA & SDC plan to a third phase of cooperation : • Extend the training on the Steel Detailing to the Steel Fixers on site with the Cooperation of the Contractors & the Vocational training Corporation. • Work on the Assessment of Structures for earthquake resilience features .
