Morning Sessions:

Safe Room Design 

This session will explore the current ICC 500 Standard design methodology and how proposed ASCE changes for 2016 might affect the design methods and results. The design methods will be illustrated with examples of wood, masonry and concrete safe rooms.  The ICC 500 coverage of tornado-generated debris and missiles will be discussed, given there are no current numerical methods to determine damage or failure caused by these high speed missiles. 

 

Tornado Design Examples 

This seminar will explore the current ICC 500 Standard design methodology and how proposed ASCE changes for 2016 might affect the design methods and results. The design methods will be illustrated with examples of masonry and concrete designs for safe rooms as well as improved building performance for lower wind speed tornadoes.   


Afternoon Sessions:

Flood Loads 

Using ASCE 7 and ASCE 24 to Determine Flood Loads - This seminar will cover the flood loads that must be considered when designing buildings in flood plains. The flood loads will be those currently covered in ASCE 7, and it will discuss how to use ASCE 24 in  flood plain design. The flood load design information will be used to develop example foundation designs adequate to resist flood loads.
