The event is split into two days. The first day “Cold-Formed Steel Framing: Engineering & Design,” is focused on advancements in Light Steel Framing Design and Building Information Modeling (BIM).

 

Cold Formed Steel Framing: Engineering & BIM (Day 1)

Light Steel Framing is steadily gaining ground as a preferred method of construction for exterior Curtain Wall framing and Mid-Rise structures. Join us as we take a look in the latest developments in design and how they could positively affect your profession.

Experts in the Light Steel Framing industry will speak on advances in Light Steel Framing that are now making it possible to design lighter and more efficiently than ever before, resulting in better project completion times and Cold Form Steel heights previously thought impossible. Speakers will also discuss the role that BIM is playing in the advancement of the Light Steel industry, and how to properly use BIM to your advantage.

This purpose of this course is to explain the latest advancements in Cold Form Steel Design that will enable you to design Light Gauge Steel structures quickly, efficiently, and more cost effectively.

*All participants will receive a certificate of participation showing 7 continuing education hours for each day to be submitted as self reported PDH/AIA/CES credits.

The second day “Progressive Collapse – A Performance Based Approach,” is focused on designing for progressive collapse, blast, earthquakes, and other extreme loads.

Progressive Collapse: A Performance Based Approach (Day 2)

Terrorist attacks at the AP Murrah Building and World Trade Center Towers, large seismic events, and other structural collapses have underlined the need to design structures to resist these extreme loading events.

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, available design methods and case studies using of Extreme Loading for Structures (ELS) Software to implement the Alternate Path Method for a performance based approach to Progressive Collapse.

*All participants will receive a certificate of participation showing 7 continuing education hours for each day to be submitted as self reported PDH/AIA/CES credits.
