Fwd: ATC-50 Seminar

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The Applied Technology Council (ATC) and the City of Los Angeles Department of Building & Safety are pleased to announce the ATC-50 Seminar on Seismic Evaluation, Grading, and Rehabilitation of Single-Family Wood-Frame Dwellings, to be held on Thursday, January 17, 2002 in the City of Commerce at the Wyndham Hotel.

The seminar program has been developed for building inspectors, contractors, structural design professionals, building officials, and representatives of insurance companies and financial institutions. Topics to be addressed include:

a) the ATC-50 Seismic Evaluation and Grading Procedures, which enable a certified inspector to evaluate a detached single-family wood-frame dwelling and assign a seismic grade, ranging from A through D. (Each grade represents an expected range of damage, expressed as a percentage of replacement cost, should the dwelling be subjected to severe earthquake ground shaking),

b) the ATC-50-1 Seismic Rehabilitation Guidelines, which provide prescriptive methods, simplified engineering methods, and fully engineered methods that, if implemented, allow the homeowner to improve the seismic grade, and

c) incentives for homeowners to participate voluntarily in the program (ATC-50-2 report, Safe at Home in Earthquakes: A New Earthquake Safety Program).

The seminar program will include plenary sessions and break-out sessions to provide a more conducive environment for questions and discussions about the new ATC-50 procedures. The seminar speakers, including local practicing structural engineers and building regulatory officials involved in ATC-50 developmental work, were selected by ATC for their technical expertise and their ability to convey technical information effectively to large audiences.

Attached for your review is a PDF version of the seminar program and registration form. If you prefer to receive a hard copy of the brochure, or for further information, please contact me. Thank you.
