FSEA Members and Structural Engineering Colleagues,
On Wednesday, July 12 we will be hosting a live seminar on "Practical Applications of Structural Dynamics." Please review the attached Seminar Meeting Notice.
We encourage all attendees to purchase the optional discounted textbook.
If you want a better understanding of the dynamic analysis and design of a variety of structural systems from one source that ties it all together, you don't want to miss this opportunity.
If you plan to attend, consider renewing or joining now!

FSEA Hosting Live Seminar Our Central Florida Chapter of FSEA is bringing together our members and colleagues for another live seminar experience. Join us on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 to participate in the live seminar on the topic of: Practical Applications of Structural Dynamics in Accordance with the Latest Codes and Standards
SPEAKER: Timothy W. Mays, Ph.D., P.E. President of SE/ES and a Professor of Civil Engineering at The Citadel Author of New Publication: “Practical Application of Structural Dynamics”
PDH CREDITS: 4.0 PDH credit will be provided (by FSEA)
DATE: Wednesday, July 12, 2017
TIME: Breakfast & Announcements 7:45 am - 8:00 am (breakfast is provided)
Presentation 8:00 am - 12:00 pm Questions 12:00 pm – 12:15 pm
PROGRAM: This course provides a detailed overview of structural dynamics as needed to fully understand the material presented in the book and to make the remaining portions of the course very easy for the attendee to follow. Part II moves into the world of linear and nonlinear analysis and the design of structural systems for blast loads. A comparison of example problem results for nonlinear static versus traditional dynamic methods used by engineers is also presented in this section. Part III covers all remaining topics to include, but not limited to, floor vibrations, structural system vibrations, and soil structure interaction with an emphasis on preventing damage from pile driving. Please note that although adequate theoretical background is given during the course, those wanting a more developed understanding of the applications presented in the course and those wanting additional topics plus more example problems on the topics discussed in the course should definitely consider purchasing the optional course textbook.
LOCATION: Cuhaci & Peterson 1925 Prospect Ave Orlando, FL 32814
