[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The Structural Engineers Association of California issues this Call for Papers to be presented at the 2002 Annual Convention to be held at the Fess Parker Resort in Santa Barbara, California, September 26  28, 2002.

The main theme of ?REAL WORLD STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING? has been tentatively chosen for the Technical Program.  The emphasis is on the practical structural design of low to high-rise buildings and other structures using both existing structural design philosophies and recently developed technologies.  Subject areas would include:
* Building Foundations and Shoring design
* Design of Single Family Residences, Multi-Family Housing
* Design of Office, Commercial, Hospital, Schools and Industrial Buildings
* Practical applications of gravity and lateral resisting systems for all building materials such as Wood, Masonry, Concrete and Steel
* Newly developed building structural design technologies
* Interpretation and Practical Design Application of the Building Codes

The technical session format will be divided into two parallel tracks allowing for a larger number of papers to be presented at the convention.
Papers presented at the SEAOC Convention will be published in the 2002 SEAOC PROCEEDINGS.  All speakers presenting papers at the convention are expected to use commercially available computer presentation software.

Interested parties should submit brief abstracts (300 words or less) of their papers on or before March 1, 2002 to:
