    Special Inspections for Existing Buildings

    When dealing with existing buildings design professionals are allowed to either show that the building complies with the International Building Code (IBC) or follow the requirements of the International Existing Building Code (IEBC).  With regards to special inspections the IEBC simply states that the permit submittal documents should include “special inspection and structural observation programs”.  No other discussion is provided in the IEBC in regards to special inspection, material testing or structural observation requirements.  The purpose of this seminar is to clarify what these requirements are with regards to existing buildings.  To do this we will review the requirements of the IBC in addition to ASCE 41-13 and applicable material standards.  In order to get a clear understanding of how to adapt the IBC special inspection requirements we will look at several types of projects including unreinforced masonry, steel moment frame, concrete tilt-up, and wood construction. 

    This course will award 1.5 hours of continuing education.  Approved in all 50 states.

    **Registration will close at 11:59 p.m. (central) Monday 6/26/17

    Chris Kimball, S.E., P.E., MCP, CBO, has more than 16 years of experience in the design, construction and building safety industries.  He is a licensed Structural Engineer as well as an ICC Master Code Professional.  He has performed building code and structural plan reviews for thousands of projects throughout Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, California, Washington, Arizona, and Texas.  In addition, Chris has provided numerous training classes to help design professionals, building officials, and contractors alike to understand both the nonstructural and structural requirements of the adopted building codes.

    FSEA Hosting Live Seminar Our North Florida Chapter of FSEA is bringing together our members and colleagues for another live seminar experience. Join us on Tuesday, July 11, 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: Tuesday, July 11, 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.
