evaluating existing structures for blast loads and DC, it is important that
engineers identify the critical deficiencies and maximize the contribution of
the existing elements in order to minimize the extent of the structural
upgrades. This webinar will provide architects and engineers with a general
overview of key factors to consider when evaluating existing structures and will
discuss the advantages of using advanced nonlinear dynamic analysis methods to
maximize the contribution of the existing structural system. The presentation
will also discuss classic blast-resistant and collapse mitigation upgrades used
to retrofit typical Masonry, RC and Steel structural systems as well as glazing
systems considering ductile modes of response.
