The program is being presented in >cooperation with the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), >the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) and the Portland Cement >Association (PCA). It will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Miami, >Florida from March 6 through March 10, 2000. This is the inaugural >presentation of the NCSEA Structural Engineering Winter Institute - an >annual one-week educational program focusing on a different theme each >year. > >The program will feature a presentation on the background, basis and >basics of LRFD by Prof. Theodore Galambos and Prof. Bruce Ellingwood. >Prof. Galambos is credited as a primary developer of the LRFD concept, >and will address the history of LRFD. Prof. Ellingwood is active in >current research on LRFD, and will speak about the present and future of >LRFD. The program will continue with about 1½ days on LRFD for >Structural Steel, presented by AISC, followed by about 1½ days on LRFD >of Engineered Wood Construction, presented by AF&PA. It will conclude >with a presentation by PCA for about 1 day on Simplified LRFD for >Reinforced Concrete Buildings. > >WHO SHOULD ATTEND >Principals & Owners - to see how LRFD can benefit their business >Associates & Project Managers - to see how LRFD should be applied in >daily activities >Design Engineers - to see LRFD requirements in a practice-oriented >environment > >PROGRAM OBJECTIVES >1. Describe the basics of load and resistance factor design (LRFD) >2. Explain the differences between allowable (working) stress design and >LRFD >3. Provide working knowledge of LRFD specifications for structural steel >and wood >4. Provide procedures for simplified load and resistance factor design >of reinforced concrete buildings > >This program is specifically tailored for structural engineers who: > - did not learn LRFD in school > - routinely use allowable (working) stress design in their practice > - aren't sure how to apply LRFD to daily activities. > >There will be optional tours for spouses to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, >Fairchild Tropical Garden and Miami Seaquarium. > >Visit the NCSEA website at http://www.ncsea.com or call (312) 372-8035 >for registration information. > >Benjamin R.
