Wind Design: Examples from SEAOC's Wind Design Manual based on IBC 2018/ASCE 7-16

The Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) and NCSEA have teamed up to deliver a brand new Web-Based Seminar for you on the massively-popular, newly-published Wind Design Manual. This web-based Wind Design Seminar will be delivered over six weeks in six 1.5 hour webinars by some of the industry’s best and brightest minds. The Seminar will follow the Manual and cover the following topics: enclosure classification, topographic effects, exposure category, gust effect factor, a series of full building examples, and several solar PV problems. Each presentation will provide examples of IBC 2018/ASCE 7-16 problems that include a discussion of the provisions in the standard, along with a step-by-step approach to solving the problem.

This seminar is critical to practicing structural engineers, trained designers, building department engineers, plan review agencies, professors and students from across the nation as you can all learn from these examples of code-compliant designs engineered to achieve good performance under wind loading .

The registration fee for the Seminar is $495 for members ($800 for nonmembers), which includes all 9 hours of education and an electronic copy of the recently-released Wind Design Manual. Each individual webinar can be purchased separately for $195 for members ($250 for nonmembers). The Wind Design Manual may also be purchased separately. Those who purchase the bundle will be given instructions to access the electronic version in one business day from purchase.
