UPCOMING EVENTS





SEM Link's 10th STEM Career Fair
SATURDAY, APRIL 15th, 10AM-2PM

SEAOG plans to host an exhibit at SEM Link's STEM Career Fair, which exposes youth to STEM and STEM Careers in a setting similar to a job fair. Volunteers will be speaking with students K-12 about how they got into engineering while leading activities that focus on structural engineering. If you’re interested in volunteering for all or part of our four hour block, please contact Mary Shinners at

WEBINARS


The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on "Fastening and Firestopping Interior and Exterior Walls" on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The webinar is designed for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors. Participants are eligible for 1.5 PDHs.

This webinar will cover:

  • Basic concepts and code requirements for firestopping cold-formed steel framed walls, both interior and exterior.
  • Examples of available technologies to complete a fire-rated wall assembly.
  • Proper fastening techniques to steel or concrete structural elements to ensure the loads from the walls are properly transferred.
  • Power-actuated fastening technologies and details.

The webinar will be conducted by Matthew Vickrey, a field engineer with Hilti who provides technical expertise to engineers and architects on the company's portfolio of fastening and fire protection products; and Christopher Gill, technical services manager for the Direct Fastening business unit at Hilti North America, responsible for supervising test programs and securing listings and approvals for power-actuated and screw-fastening products. Gill is a member of the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) Committee on Specifications and participates on Subcommittee 3 (Connections and Joints) and Subcommittee 33 (Diaphragm Design).

More information on the webinar and registration details are available at www.cfsei.org.



Register now to attend SJI's Webinar:
Wind Design Considerations for Joists and Joist Girders

The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar "Wind Design Considerations for Joists and Joist Girders." This webinar will provide a comprehensive review of wind forces on steel joist and Joist Girder roof systems, including wind load determination, wind load combinations, and wind load application. Specification, analysis, and design to resist uplift loads will be a primary focus, but also load paths and connections for wind moment frames, collectors, and braces.

The learning objectives include:

  • Attendees will review the appropriate load combinations involving wind.
  • The appropriate load paths for wind forces will be discussed.
  • Tips will be provided for connection details for the transfer of wind forces.
  • Attendees will be advised of two new developments affecting wind design.

Register for the ATC Webinar on NEHRP Technical Brief No. 12, Seismic Design of Cold-Formed Steel Lateral Load-Resisting Systems – A Guide for Practicing Engineers

Wednesday, April 12, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Pacific

For more information and to register click here.

Registration Fees:
$170 - Regular rate + hard copy report
$150 - Regular rate
$160 - Subscriber rate + hard copy report
$140 - Subscriber rate
$95 -Student rate + hard copy report
$75 - Student rate

Purpose. The purpose of the webinar is to provide an overview of NEHRP Seismic Design Technical Brief No. 12, Seismic Design of Cold-Formed Steel Lateral Load-Resisting Systems - A Guide for Practicing Engineers (NIST GCR-16-917-38). The webinar will provide:

  • An introduction to cold-formed steel (CFS) lateral load-resisting systems including the distinctions between various categories
  • An overview of the history of CFS load-bearing and lateral force-resisting systems
  • An understanding of the evolution of American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) standards for CFS framing
  • Guidance regarding the analysis and seismic design of CFS systems
  • Other topics related to design, construction, assessment, and in-progress and future developments.

Intended Audience. This webinar has been specifically designed for practicing structural engineers, but will also be useful for building officials, educators, researchers, and students.





QUARTER 2 WEBCAST SERIES – Lateral Structural Design

Buildings are growing in complexity, and engineers are looking for methods and tools to assist with the analysis of these structures. Inspired by the popularity of Terry’s Offset Diaphragm Design and Offset Shear Wall Design webinars, the Q2 series will start with programs on the design of shear walls and diaphragms with openings, and move into the complexities of structural design specific to multi-story projects.
