    January 12th 12:00 - 2:10PM, Virtual Zoom with Dr. S.K. Ghosh, head of S.K. Ghosh Associates LLC!

    This seminar is about major, far-reaching changes in the wind provisions of U.S. codes and standards over the last three decades or so. This will include the very substantive changes in wind design provisions from  ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16, which are reflected in the 2018 IBC.

    This is a chance to review where we have been and gives us a look to the future with the insight of someone who has long been intimately involved in the structural code development process.

    The major topics covered are: 

    1. An Overview of the History and Development of Wind Provisions
    2. ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16: Substantive Changes to Wind Design Provisions

    We are shaking it up for our September presentations (pun intended). We have rock star Emily Guglielmo, SE, PD, SEI and NCSEA President.  She never sleeps.  This is two one hour sessions. Sept. 17th and 24th. Noon to 1:00 each day.    

    This session will provide an introduction to seismic design methodology and approaches used in ASCE 7.  It will focus on ASCE 7/ IBC seismic provisions that are often misunderstood or incorrectly applied by the practicing structural engineer. Key topics will include: Redundancy (ρ), R, Cd and Ωo, horizontal and vertical lateral force resisting system combinations, and irregularities. Each topic will include references to lessons learned from past earthquakes, code provisions, suggestions to simplify, and sample problems. Register on line www.seaoal.com

    If you just love an interesting story, this webinar is for you! SEAoAL and KELLER (Formerly Hayward Baker) have partnered with the ACFA to share the investigation, design & stabilization of the Pointe du Hoc Cliff in Normandy, France. This was an important site during the Normandy landings on D-Day. ⁠ ⁠ This project was commissioned by the American Battle Monuments Commission and investigated by Texas A&M University.
