Structural Design for Lateral Loads and Stability Workshop

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: EPIC Educational Program Innovations Center
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Dorval, Edmonton, Calgary, Halifax, Mississauga, Ottawa, Regina, Richmond, Saint Johns, Winnipeg, Canada
  V

The structural stability of buildings depends on their ability to withstand vertical &, horizontal loads. It is essential to understand stability &, loads calculations based on the recent National Building Code of Canada in 2010. Lateral loads lead to increases in the internal forces &, can affect the stability of the whole structure.

This seminar demonstrates the effect of lateral loads on structures &, the requirements &, designs of different lateral resisting systems. We will discuss theoretical concepts &, practical methods to design lateral systems in different structures. To ensure a thorough understanding, the course also includes several design examples that will be solved in workshops.

Course Outline:
Wind Load Theory and Calculations
Special Wind Cases (i.e. on corners, heights, and uplifting)
Earthquake Load Theory and Calculations
Layout Considerations of Lateral Resisting Systems
Different Types of Lateral Bracing Systems in Steel Structures
Types of Lateral Resisting Systems in Concrete Structures
Braced Frames Design
Concrete Shear Walls Types and Analysis
Diaphragm Action and Analysis
Lateral Earth Pressure and Shoring Types

Formwork for Concrete Structures

Designers devote great effort to optimizing sizes of reinforced concrete members to achieve economical design. Formwork costs are often overlooked. Yet, this cost can exceed that of the reinforcing steel and concrete combined. Also, formwork failure is a safety concern and frustration for project stakeholders. Designers must ensure the safety and effectiveness of formwork and site personnel are responsible for ensuring that formwork is built as designed. Hence, knowledge on formwork design and erection is essential. This seminar provides participants with state-of-the art knowledge on formwork materials and design.

Focus will be on solving problems that allow delegates to apply principles to real world design cases.

Course Outline:
Economy &, cost considerations of formwork
Formwork materials
Pressure of fresh concrete on formwork
Design of concrete formwork
Examples of formwork applications &, design
Special formwork topics

Who Should Attend:
Construction, Civil &, Materials Engineers �Designers �Site Engineers �Formwork Technologists and Technicians �Construction personnel �Project Coordinators &, Estimators

Diagnosing Defects in Aging Concrete Structures and Developing Effective Repair Solutions

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: EPIC Educational Program Innovations Center
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Dorval, Edmonton, Calgary, Halifax, Mississauga, Ottawa, Regina, Richmond, Saint Johns, Winnipeg, Canada
  V

Despite the costly and tragic failures of some North American concrete structures, there is currently a lack of guidelines and procedures for assessing, testing, classifying, and prioritizing preventive and corrective action for these structures. This course focuses on training participants to properly diagnose the root causes of concrete structure damage, to develop effective repair strategies, and select the right repair materials.

Case studies and observations of existing structures will enhance the learning process, and participants will have the opportunity to discuss real cases that they have been exposed to in their professional practice.

Course Outline:
Mechanisms of premature damage
Non-destructive testing methods for hidden defects
Surface repair methods
Epoxy injection of cracks
Repairing &, strengthening using fibre-reinforced polymers
Condition survey of concrete structures
Failure analysis &, forensic engineering

Who Should Attend:
Designers, Construction &, Structural Engineers �Project Managers �Technicians &, Technologists �Engineers in Training �Construction Inspectors �Inspection Officials �Facility Managers �Architects

Structural Design for non-structural Engineers Workshop

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: IDC Technologies Canada
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Regina, Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Canada
  V

Construction is the largest industry in the world and anything constructed needs to be designed first. Structural Engineering deals with the analysis and design; the basic purpose of which is to ensure a safe, functional and economical structure.

The participants of the workshop will gain the basic knowledge of structural engineering that includes principles of analysis of structures and their application, behaviour of materials under loading, selection of construction materials and design fundamentals for RCC & Steel structures. The emphasis has been kept on the determination of nature & quantum of stress developed under loads and the way structures offer resistance to it. Being the most widely used construction materials, the RCC & steel has been covered in detail though masonry & timber have also been described briefly.

This course is a practical structural design course that contains step-by-step procedures that include instructions that help understand and solve routine building structural problems. The course contains a short introduction to the National Building Code of Canada, NBCC 2005, and then goes into detail on how to calculate the expected environmental and occupational loads on a structure, which includes dead, live, snow, wind, and seismic loads. A crash summary of the required structural analysis basics that are needed for structural design will be explained. The course then goes into the design of steel, reinforced concrete structural elements by limit states design according to the Canadian Standard Association CSA codes S16-01 and A23.3-04, respectively. The connection design of steel members and the design of deep and shallow foundations are also discussed.

Objectives
Introduce the attendees to the manner in which environmental influences and occupancies are transformed into structural loadings and the manner in which structures resist these loadings. The attendees will learn how to compute loadings, and to design steel and concrete members, including steel connections. The course also includes the design of deep and shallow foundations and aims at exposing the attendees to the practical aspects of design, which are normally gained through practical experience and the work in design offices.
