Frameless Glass Railing: Designing Stunning, Code-Compliant Systems
Glass railings can be a beautiful addition to your residential and commercial projects, adding value to your portfolio and raising your profits; however, specification questions, code changes and misinterpretations can stand in the way of a successful glass railing project. In this session, attendees will learn about design considerations, code requirements, installation methods, testing standards, cap rail requirements, and laminated glass guardrail requirements. They will also walk away with a sound understanding of 2015 IBC updatesalong with their impact and the important role of the International Code Council (ICC).

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 3, 2017—The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on “The Structural Aspect of Interior Nonstructural Cold-Formed Steel Framing” on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The webinar is designed for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors. Participants are eligible for 1.5 PDHs.
The webinar will review various interior nonstructural cold-formed steel framing for code-specified and engineered applications. Often, interior applications beyond ASTM installation standards are not thoroughly addressed in project contract documents. This webinar will assist building design professionals by highlighting code and industry standard limitations and illustrating which ones do not require analysis and which ones require additional engineering to determine proper member sizes and installation. The webinar will cover several topics, including:
· Wall and ceiling members: tables, bridging and limitations,
· Chase wall framing,
· Partial height partition support systems,
· Structure deflection accommodations, and
· Suspended ceiling systems.
The webinar will be conducted by Randy Kuss, Project Manager at ClarkDietrich Engineering Services, LLC. Randy has more than 25 years of experience in both structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing, ranging from basic interior partition installation requirements to complex architectural feature framing. His current responsibilities include engineering pricing, sales, design management, engineering design, detailing and field installation technical services for all aspects of structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing.
More information on the webinar and registration details are available at http://www.cfsei.org/.
The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers and other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel. CFSEI members work together to develop and evolve industry standards and design methods, produce and issue technical bulletins, and provide seminars and online training to improve the knowledge and skills base of engineers and design professionals.

ON COLD-FORMED STEEL STRUCTURES
Biennial course to be held October 24-26, 2017 in St. Louis, MO
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI), in cooperation with the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, are co-sponsoring the 25th Short Course on Cold-Formed Steel Structures at the Drury Plaza Hotel at the Arch in St. Louis, Missouri from October 24-26, 2017. The Short Course provides information on the behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections for both commercial and residential applications, including wall studs, floor joists, purlins, girts, decks and panels. It is eligible for 2.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Registration is required by October 10, 2017.
“This comprehensive course benefits all engineers interested in cold-formed steel design,” said Maribeth Rizzuto, LEED AP – BD+C, Managing Director, CFSEI. “For those unfamiliar with cold-formed steel design, the course will provide an introduction to the behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections and how that behavior is addressed by AISI S100, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members. For experienced engineers, the course will strengthen their understanding of the fundamental behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections.”
Several topics will be covered during the Short Course, including:
