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

After participating in this course you will be able to:

  • Recognize different types of structural system used to provide lateral resistance for buildings
  • Identify suitable lateral load structural system for each building
  • Understand the behavior of different lateral load structural systems
  • Understand the finite element modelling of different structural components

Description:
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.

Course Outline :

  • Different types of structural systems used to provide lateral resistance of different structures
  • Analysis and modelling of frame structures under lateral loads
  • Analysis and modelling of shearwall structures considering torsional effects
  • Analysis and modelling of coupled shearwall buildings
  • Behavior and modelling of wall-frame buildings

PART II: Code Procedures for Wind and Seismic Loads on Structures

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.

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.
