Built-Up Member Design (Cold-Formed Steel)
May 8 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Speaker: Roger A. LaBoube, PhD, PE

Built-up members are common framing members such as boundary studs, trimmer joists, stud packs, and headers. This SE University session will review the applicable AISI S100 and S240 design provisions for built-up compression members and built-up flexural members, and the various design requirements and limit states applicable for creating a cold-formed steel built-up member will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the applicable cold-formed steel design standards for framing members vs. other cold-formed steel applications.
  • Identify economical design solutions for cold-formed steel stud packs.
  • Develop the ability to design a built-up box-beam that is not specifically enabled by the current cold-formed steel design standards.

2018 National Design Specification (NDS) Changes
Jun 12 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Lori Koch, PE
American Wood Council

Session Description:

This SE University presentation will provide an overview of the significant changes for wood design per AWC’s National Design Specification® (NDS) for Wood Construction. The 2018 NDS is referenced in the 2018 International Building Code and 2018 International Residential Code and used to design wood structures worldwide. The 2018 NDS references ASCE/SEI Standard 7-16 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures which includes increased wind loads. Participants will learn about changes in the 2018 NDS to address increased wind loads and gain an overview of the standard. A brief introduction to tall mass timber structures will also be included, with information on the new construction types adopted for the 2021 International Building Code (IBC).
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Identify changes in the 2018 NDS.
  • Identify wind load increases in ASCE 7-16 that affect wood design and construction.
  • Identify new fastener provisions developed to address increased wind loads.

SEU BIM Forum: Revit for Structural Engineers Part I – Navigating in Revit Structure
Jun 19 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Speaker: Betsy Werra

E.L.Werra Consulting, LLC

 

This SEU BIM Forum session is the first in a 3-part series that is meant for structural engineers and managers who use Revit Structure for viewing/printing purposes, and are not as familiar with modeling in the program. This session will focus on the basics of how to navigate within Revit Structure.
During the session Betsy will focus on a number of items, including the difference between accessing a file in Revit vs. the Revit Viewer, tips and tricks for opening a view from an existing view, and other topics related to navigating and viewing.
Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the difference between the Revit Viewer application and a licensed Revit application.
  • Understand the User Interface in Revit 2019.
  • Identify how to navigate throughout a Revit 2019 project file.
