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.Register Here

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
Georgia Tech Molecular Science and Engineering Building (MOSE)
901 Atlantic Drive
ATLANTA, GA 30332
The SEAOG hands-on seminar will be held April 29, 2017 at Stein Steel

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
Session 7: March 27, 2017 - Transfer Crane Girder and Longitudinal Building Bracing Design by Jules Van de Pas
Session 8: April 3, 2017 - Building Envelope and Bracing Design by Jim Fisher
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

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.
