UPCOMING EVENTS

           CEUS Regional Seismic Hazard Mapping Workshop

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Central

University of Memphis - Memphis, Tennessee

Brought to you by the Tennessee Structural Engineers Association with speaker Kevin Moore, this interactive workshop will cover the technical background and the impacts of proposed modifications to the next generation NEHRP seismic provisions currently being considered by the Project 17 committee. The goal of this workshop is to provide CEUS professionals with information and an opportunity to comment on proposed seismic provisions ultimately intended for the ASCE 7-22.

Workshop participants will hear technical background on the following topics considered by Project 17 working groups.

  • Acceptable Risk: selection of an appropriate risk basis for the maps;
  • Precision and Uncertainty: stabilizing mapped seismic design values and associated requirements over successive building code editions;
  • Multi-Period Spectral Parameters: more properly representing site class effects on soft sites where hazards are dominated by large magnitude earthquakes;
  • Deterministic Maps: specification of the deterministic event on which seismic hazards are based at sites close to major active faults;
  • Seismic Design Category: minimize the fluctuations that affect seismic design requirements, specifically with the idea of decoupling Seismic Design Category (SDC) from mapped seismic design values.

Workshop results will be presented to the Project 17 Committee at the Companion BSSC April Workshop in Burlingame, California. Project 17 is tasked with providing seismic design value recommendations for use in the development of ASCE 7-22.

Registration Fees:
$60 - Member
$85 - Non-Member
$35 - Student (Must register using a valid .edu email address)
$100 - At-Door

This course will award 4.0 pdh.

      WEBINARS








      Register for Night School 13 - Design of Industrial Buildings
      Presented by Jim Fisher, PE, PhD
      and Jules Van de Pas, PE, SE
      Computerized Structural Design

      Class begins January 30, 2017!

      Sessions will take place on Monday nights, 7 p.m. Eastern.

      AISC is pleased to announce that Night School 13 - Design of Industrial Buildings, will begin on January 30, 2017. This Night School consists of lessons which are split between the design of buildings without overhead cranes and those structures with light duty and heavy duty overhead cranes. Critical design issues and design approach techniques are discussed. Calculations are presented in a manner that serve as a teaching tool for engineers. A complete design example (anchor rods to roofing) of a 50-ton overhead crane building is illustrated. The schedule is as follows:

      Session 1: January 30, 2017 - Design Criteria by Jim Fisher
      Session 2: February 6, 2017 - Economic Considerations by Jim Fisher
      Session 3: February 13, 2017 - Lateral Load Systems and Details by Jim Fisher
      Session 4: February 27, 2017 - Preliminary Design Procedures by Jim Fisher
      Session 5: March 6, 2017 - Crane Girder Design and Frame Analysis by Jules Van de Pas
      Session 6: March 13, 2017 - Frame Member and Connection Design by Jules Van de Pas

      • 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.
