EPIC: Introduction to the Changes in the Seismic Provisions of the 2015 National Building Code of Canada

DATE - TBD

This webinar provides an introduction to the significant changes in the seismic design provisions that have taken place between NBCC 2010 and NBCC 2015. The webinar will highlight the 2015 and 2010 NBCC differences in the determination of seismic hazard, site effect factors, higher mode effects, and seismic base shear.

EPIC: Introduction to Wood Buildings Design

TBD

Wood construction has gained significant popularity over the past decade as a sustainable, cost-effective solution for low-rise multi-residential buildings. The push has been to extend the use of wood to mid-rise and high-rise construction for increased density on urban infill projects.

Topics covered in this course include: physical and mechanical properties of wood and structural wood products, design of axially loaded members, flexural members, and combined axial and flexural wood members, design of wood connection and introduction of different wood systems and structural assemblies.

EPIC: Laterally Loaded Piles - Lateral Load Capacity and Deflection

TBD

Pile foundations are sometimes used to withstand lateral forces and moments experienced in offshore structures and high-rise buildings. The lateral load capacity and deflection of pile foundations will govern the pile’s performance in this scenario. The lateral performance of the piles depends on both the pile characteristics (length, diameter, stiffness) as well as the surrounding soil properties.

This lecture focuses on the analysis of pile behaviour under lateral loads. Lateral load carrying capacity estimation will be presented for both short and long piles in cohesive and cohesion-less soils. The pile lateral deflection will also be estimated for both single piles and pile groups.

EPIC: Lessons Learned from the Design and Construction of Interlocking Concrete Block Pavements

DATE - TBD

The purpose of this webinar is to develop an understanding of the key features of design, construction, maintenance and rehabilitation to assist agencies and other owners to ensure that they are getting what

they paid for and to cost-effectively extend the service life of our pavement infrastructure

EPIC: Maintenance and Rehabilitation of Highway and Municipal Pavements

DATE - TBD

This webinar focuses on maintenance and rehabilitation treatments, costs, discussing whether the benefits of applying various treatments is cost effective, and discuss the dos and don’ts to ensure the successful use of maintenance and rehabilitation treatments.

EPIC: National Energy Model for Buildings in Canada

TBD

The National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) sets out technical provisions to address energy efficiency in the design and construction of new buildings and additions to existing buildings. In the context of the NECB, the use of the term “energy efficiency” shall be understood to mean “energy use efficiency.”

In this course, you will consider the primary goals of the National Energy Model for Buildings in Canada for new construction, but also explore the activities and roles of the Energy Model. The KEY objective of this Code is to limit the probability that, as a result of the design or construction of buildings, resources will be used in a manner that will have an unacceptable effect on the environment, caused by excessive use of energy

EPIC: New and Emerging Technology for Extending Pavement Life

DATE - TBD

Throughout history, transportation agencies have fostered and implemented new methods and means to innovatively and cost-effectively extend eh service life of our transportation infrastructure while

minimizing the impact of road work on the road users. By fostering collaboration between government agencies and industry, it is possible to develop new policies, processes and procedures to reduce time

and cost and improve the safety of our transportation infrastructure. We will introduce the technique/technology and outline how they can assist in reducing project time and costs and maximize the value and terms of life -

cycle costs. We will present key factors for success, best practices and available resources to assist in implementing the techniques/technologies

EPIC: Pavement and Bridge Considerations for Super Heavy Load Moves

DATE - TBD

This webinar provides some background on the types and configurations of Super Heavy loads, and their potential impact on transportation infrastructure. It discusses methods to assess the impact, including in-situ pavement material characterization, impact of climate and operational speed of the vehicles and trailers, potential for shear failure, damage to underground utilities, and pavement distress.

EPIC: Pavement design 101

DATE - TBD

This webinar provides an introduction to the design of flexible and rigid pavements. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) 1993 pavement design procedure is covered along with an introduction to the new AASHTOWare Pavement Design ME mechanistic-empirical design method. The webinar covers the primary design, specification and construction factors that contribute to the long-term functional and structural performance of pavement

EPIC: Pavement Preservation to Improve Performance and Reduce Life-Cycle Costs

DATE - TBD

This course covers:

Outline the key components of a successful pavement preservation program

Evaluate the performance of various common maintenance and rehabilitation treatments

Analyze the PM treatment costs-typical costs and variability of individual PM treatments 

Determine whether the benefits of applying PM treatment to a roadway justify the costs associated with the treatment and identify the factors (roadway classification, pavement type and pavement condition prior to treatment) for which a given PM treatment can be considered cost-effective 

Evaluate the applicability of various PM treatment

EPIC: Residential Building Envelope and Structure Assessment and Repair

TBD

Multi-unit and single-family residential building repair is a growing industry. This course offers tools for correctly assessing major repair needs and applying design and construction standards geared to new construction. Participants will also study approaches for repairing existing buildings and learn to avoid poor-quality and unsafe repairs.

This online course will explore various building designs and construction materials, and how the application of building codes and materials are used in the repair of multi-unit and single-family buildings. Contracts and disputes associated with typical building repair contracts will also be discussed.

EPIC: Sidewalk Design, Evaluation and Management: Maintaining Infrastructure and Reducing Liability Risk

TBD

Sidewalks and recreational trails are intended to provide a safe and durable surface for the public. The primary surface material for urban sidewalks has traditionally been concrete with recreational trails traditionally surfaced with hot mix asphalt. However, there is significant pressure in urban areas to provide “enhanced” treatments including interlocking, bricks, granite setts, stamped and coloured concrete and recycled products.

Municipalities are faced with challenges on how to evaluate, approve and maintain these products. How can each be constructed and maintained in a cost-effective manner? How do I determine when to “fix” something? What is involved?

EPIC: Site Investigation for Geotechnical Design

TBD

Site investigation is generally conducted prior to the start of any construction project to gather crucial information that will influence the design, construction, and environmental assessment of a proposed project. Site investigation could be carried out using both surface site exploration methods (non-intrusive techniques) and subsurface drilling survey (intrusive methods). This webinar presents various site exploration techniques used in a typical site investigation process including geophysical measurements, geotechnical drilling, sampling and field tests.

EPIC: Structural Mechanics Fundamentals - Stresses, Strains and Torsion

TBD

Structural Mechanics is a subject that addresses computational problems in analyzing elastic structural elements. The functions contained in Structural Mechanics are designed for professional engineers, educators, and students of engineering mechanics in mechanical, civil, and aerospace engineering.

In practice, the engineer can adopt Structural Mechanics to perform analyses of elastic structural elements along with other professional engineering analysis tools.
