CE CREDITS: 4.0 PDH credits will be provided by FSEA, with Certificate

 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 

AGENDA: This course is a one of a kind introduction to the alternate means and methods process as stipulated in the 2015/2018 International Building Code (IBC) and the 2015/2018 International Residential Code (IRC). The course begins with a detailed overview of the alternate means and methods provisions, the rationale for their use, and current practice as utilized in the United States. Problems inherent with the prescriptive nature of the IBC and the IRC are discussed (with examples) and the need for a performance-based approach is argued. Example applications included in this course include: designing lateral force resisting systems not listed in the code, justifying that prescriptive code provisions can be neglected in certain applications, using design approaches not presented in the code and its referenced standards, using new materials not listed in the code, and performance-based design for fire. This course is perfect for those who feel like: • the code is too big • some provisions are way too conservative, don’t apply to my particular structure, or may even result in an unsafe structure at times • structural engineering fees are too low • the code prohibits me from actually engineering a solution at times • some code provisions make me liable for design provisions without adequate detail or justification
