Philadelphia International Airport
Two day training course covering Progressive Collapse.
Attendees can buy tickets to attend one day or both days. (descriptions below)
Over the years new design codes such as the UFC 4-023-03, GSA’s Progressive Collapse criteria, International Building Code (2009 IBC), ASCE/SEI 7-10, ACI 318-05, Eurocode, and others throughout the world have been updated to include provisions in design of structures to resist progressive collapse. However, many of these requirements were limited to federal and military buildings. The current trend in new design codes such as ASCE Standard for Mitigation of Disproportionate Collapse Potential in Building and Other Structures is starting to require all public and private structures that meet a certain occupancy criteria to also be designed against progressive collapse broadening the number of structures that must meet this new requirement.
This course aims to provide basic background for practicing structural engineers regarding Progressive Collapse requirements, a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of available design methods as well as and case studies using of Extreme Loading® for Structures (ELS) Software implementing the Alternate Path Method for a performance based approach to progressive collapse that provides significant savings while meeting code requirements.
*Laptops required for Day 2, software will be provided.
**All participants will receive a certificate of participation showing 6 continuing education hours for each day to be submitted as self reported PDH, AIA/CES LU’s, or PMP PDU’s.
