Practical Applications of Structural Dynamics in
Accordance with the Latest Codes and Standards


Course Description:
Authored by Timothy W. Mays, Ph.D., P.E., Practical Applications of Structural Dynamics is a comprehensive and example filled design guide on everything from simplified to extremely detailed applications of structural dynamics to the design of structural systems including but not limited to buildings, bridges, marine structures, foundation systems, antiterrorism systems, and even retrofitting structures to reduce vibrations. The new, standalone publication contains page after page of comprehensive technical content and easy to read theoretical applications followed by practical design examples. All relevant code provisions (e.g., 2015 IBC, 2014 AASHTO, 2016 MOTEMS) for applying the approaches used in the guide are fully presented in the guide. Simplified design aids are also included in the publication.

Part I of the course provides a detailed overview of structural dynamics as needed to fully understand the material presented in the book and to make the remaining portions of the course very easy for the attendee to follow. Part II of the course presents simplified, yet code compliant, applications of structural dynamics to the design of marine structures and other structures where impact is the prime concern. Part III moves into the world of linear and nonlinear analysis and the design of structural systems for blast loads. A comparison of example problem results for nonlinear static versus traditional dynamic methods used by engineers is also presented in this section. Part IV covers all remaining topics to include, but not limited to, floor vibrations, structural system vibrations, and soil structure interaction to include preventing damage from pile driving.

Please note that although adequate theoretical background is given during the course, those wanting a more developed understanding of the applications presented in the course and those wanting additional topics plus more example problems on the topics discussed in the course should definitely consider purchasing the optional course text.

Course hours are approved for all states including FL and NY through the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations. All attendees may elect to purchase one copy of Practical Applications of Structural Dynamics at a reduced cost of only $64 (that is a significant savings off the yet to be released cover price). If you want a better understanding of the dynamic analysis and design of a variety of structural systems from one source that ties it all together, you donít want to miss this opportunity.

SPACE IS LIMITED - PLEASE REGISTER EARLY!

WEBINARS





Register now to attend SJI's Webinar: Diaphragm Design That Makes Sense: How To Design and Specify Steel Deck by Representatives of the SDI

The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar "Diaphragm Design That Makes Sense: How To Design and Specify Steel Deck by Representatives of the SDI." Recent changes in design codes and construction practices have made diaphragm connection design more complicated and time consuming. This webinar identifies those changes, provides design guidance, reviews upcoming publications, and introduces new SDI design tools.

The learning objectives include:

  • Recognizing appropriate AISI and SDI Standards and literature.
  • Understanding the limits of existing shear tables and evaluation reports
  • Design procedures for uniquely shaped and sloped structures.
  • Design procedures and shear capacities over CF framing.
