NCSEA Winter Institute

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA) is
presenting it's Structural Engineering Winter Institute from January 21
through January 24, 2001 at the Four Points Barceló Hotel in Phoenix,
Arizona.  The Winter Institute is an annual one-week educational program
focusing on a different theme each year.  This year's topic is
"Environmental Loads on Structures: Wind, Snow & Seismic."

The program will feature presentations by James M. Delahay, T. Eric
Stafford, Michael O'Rourke, Wayne Tobiasson, Ron O. Hamburger and Gerald
Neville.  Each of these individuals is directly involved in the development
and dissemination of the latest requirements in ASCE 7-98 and the new
International Building Code (IBC) 2000.  ASCE 7-98, Minimum Design Loads for
Buildings and Other Structures, is recognized as the authoritative, basic
reference for determining design loads.  The International Building Code,
IBC 2000, is the new model code developed jointly by the three model code
agencies, and incorporates the provisions ASCE 7-98.  IBC 2000 is poised to
become a uniform, consistent building code adopted by municipalities and
building departments throughout the country.  

Structural engineers should plan to attend this program to learn the current
state of practice for these crucial load conditions.  There have been
significant changes for computing the wind, snow and seismic loads, and the
program will focus on the practical application of the code requirements.
There will be a total of eighteen (18) contact hours of continuing education
