EPIC: Diagnosing Defects in Aging Concrete Structures and Developing Effective Repair Solutions Nov 2-4, 2022

ONLINE - INSTRUCTOR LED

Despite the costly and tragic failures of some North American concrete structures, there is currently a lack of guidelines and procedures for assessing, testing, classifying, and prioritizing preventive and corrective action for these structures. This course focuses on training participants to properly diagnose the root causes of damage in concrete structures, to develop effective repair strategies, and select the right repair materials.

Case studies and observations of existing structures will enhance the learning process, and participants will have the opportunity to discuss real cases that they have been exposed to in their professional practice.

EPIC: Total Building Commissioning Process Nov 2-3 2022

ONLINE - INSTRUCTOR LED

Building commissioning, a tool originally developed for HVAC systems, is being extended to all new building energy systems. Many major companies and government agencies now require the commissioning process on new construction and renovation projects. Owners of institutional, commercial, and industrial buildings and large multi-unit residential buildings must use proven quality management tools and process systems that match their needs, meet their budgets and schedules, and reduce operating problem (cost quality, energy efficiency).

In this course, you will consider the primary goals of the building commissioning process for new construction, but also briefly explore the activities and roles of recommissioning for existing buildings that have already been commissioned, retro-commissioning for buildings that had not yet been commissioned, and continuous commissioning.

EPIC: Building Condition Assessment - Repair and Maintenance Strategy - Nov 7-10 2022

ONLINE - INSTRUCTOR LED

As buildings and structures age owners often rely upon engineers to perform building condition assessments to help them make the decision on the action necessary to upgrade or repair the structures.

This course explores how decisions are made which are based on the results of the various tests and nondestructive investigative techniques that professionals use in the evaluation of building components.

The course will explain step-by-step procedures in how to prepare a scope of work that can be developed into bid documents for building upgrades and repairs.

EPIC: Design of Lightweight Wood Framed Lateral Load Structural Systems Nov 8-10 2022

ONLINE - INSTRUCTOR LED

Lightweight wood framed 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 light wood framing to mid-rise construction for increased density on urban infill projects. This course covers the analysis of lightweight wood framed buildings, the behaviour of flexible and rigid diaphragms, the numerical modeling of lightweight wood framed shear walls, and the design of lightweight wood framed shear walls and diaphragms.

EPIC: Structural Modelling: Behavior and Modelling of Different Lateral Load Structural Systems Nov 17 2022

ONLINE - 2 HRS

This webinar covers an introduction to the behavior of different lateral load structural resisting systems under lateral loads. As well, this webinar discusses the different methods to develop finite element models that accurately simulates the behavior of different lateral load structural system.

Sophisticated three-dimensional modelling, that truly simulates different types of buildings, requires engineers to understand the complex behavior of different lateral load structural systems and structural modelling using basic knowledge of Finite Element Method. This webinar series provides an opportunity to learn the principles and techniques of structural modelling of different types of structures under lateral loads such as wind and seismic. The concepts and theories are explained thoroughly with conceptual examples, with no full numerical example due to the time restrain.

NOTE: This webinar is part of a four part Web Series: Structural Modelling for High-Rise and Industrial Buildings. It is strongly recommended that you take all four webinars to gain a full understanding of Structural Modelling High-rise and Industrial Buildings. The topics in this series include:

Structural Modelling: Behavior and Modelling of Different Lateral Load Structural Systems

Structural Modelling: Code Procedures for Wind and Seismic Loads on Structures

Structural Modelling: Industrial Buildings

Structural Modelling: Selected Topics in Modelling of Structural Components
