Attendees will gain 8.0 Florida and New York approved professional development hours for this program.

 

This three part course is sure to challenge the young engineer to think while offering the seasoned structural engineer excellent design examples that currently do not exist in the literature. Course hours are approved for FL and NY through the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations.

 

 

Part I: Guide to the Design of Serviceability of Building Systems In Accordance with the 2012 IBC and ASCE 7-10

Part I of this course is an in depth presentation of NCSEA’s latest design guide covering practical applications of the 2012 IBC.  Each attendee will receive one copy of the subject publication.  The presentation and the guide provide commentary and examples of appropriate implementation of the serviceability provisions and requirements contained in the 2012 IBC and ASCE 7-10.    

 

Part II: Guide to the Design of Foundation Systems In Accordance with the 2012 IBC and ASCE 7-10

Part II of this course is an in depth presentation of another soon to be released NCSEA design guide covering practical applications of the 2012 IBC.  The design guide provides the user with example problems to illustrate common applications of each provision contained in Chapter 18 of the 2012 IBC.  Illustrative example problems for various foundation types will be presented in this short course. 

 

Part III: Design of Slabs on Ground In Accordance with ACI 360R-10

Part III is a comprehensive presentation of slab-on-ground design procedures in accordance with ACI 360R-10. Topics such as soil considerations, serviceability, loads including those from heavy wheels, and slab/joint detailing are presented for practical cases including the common case of demand exceeding simplified charts found in the literature. As always, Dr. Mays uses hand calculations, simple statics, and easy to understand examples to verify the accuracy of models prior to utilizing them in the course’s more complex examples.

 

Timothy Wayne Mays, Ph.D., P.E. is President of SE/ES and an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at The Citadel in Charleston, SC. Dr. Mays recently served as Executive Director of the Structural Engineers Associations of South Carolina and North Carolina. He currently serves as NCSEA Publications Committee Chairman. He has received two national teaching awards (ASCE and NSPE) and both national (NSF) and regional (ASEE) awards for outstanding research. He is the recipient of the 2009 NCSEA Service Award. He is a prolific speaker who sits on several code writing committees and his areas of expertise are code applications, structural design, seismic design, steel connections, structural dynamics, and civil engineering aspects of antiterrorism.
