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

2 Professional Development Hours


This webinar is part of a four-part Web Series: Structural Modelling for Concrete High-Rise and Industrial Buildings. It is strongly recommended that you take all four webinars to understand the Structural Modelling of High-rise and Industrial Buildings.

The topics in this series include:

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Use the code procedures to calculate wind loads on different structures
  • Use the code procedures to calculate seismic loads on other structures
  • Recognize inelastic behaviour and ductility of structures

Engineers need a thorough understanding of earthquake and wind engineering fundamentals to apply the seismic and wind provisions of the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 2020.

This webinar introduces the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 2020 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. This webinar also covers the static and response spectrum approaches to calculate seismic loads on buildings.

Sophisticated three-dimensional modelling, which truly simulates different types of buildings, requires engineers to understand the complex behaviour of different lateral load structural systems and structural modelling using basic knowledge of the 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 time restraints.
