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:

You can register for any one of these courses or register for the series and save 20%.

After participating in this course you will be able to:

  • Use the code procedures to calculate wind loads on different structures 
  • Understand the different experimental approaches to estimate wind loads on structures 
  • Use the code procedures to calculate seismic loads on different structures   
  • Recognize inelastic behavior and ductility of structures

Description:
To effectively apply the seismic and wind provisions of the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 2010, engineers need a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of earthquake and wind engineering. This webinar provides an introduction to the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 2010 procedures to calculate the wind and seismic loads on buildings. Different approaches for wind load calculations on buildings using static, dynamic, or experimental methods are discussed.  As well, the webinar covers both the static and response spectrum approaches to calculate seismic loads on buildings. 

Note: It is strongly recommended that you take all four webinars to gain a full understanding of Structural Modelling High-rise and Industrial Buildings.

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.
