NIBS: Just Two Weeks Left to Learn and Earn at Next BSSC Webinar

Get the Latest Research on Nonlinear Response-History Analysis and Earn One Learning Unit


Apr 12, 2016 -- Be there for this free one-hour webinar presented by the National Institute of Building Sciences Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) on Thursday, April 28, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET. You’ll hear from Curt B. Haselton, PhD, PE, professor of civil engineering at California State University, Chico. Dr. Haselton will present his research on “Chapter 16, Nonlinear Response-History Analysis for the Design of New Buildings.”

Co-founder of Haselton Baker Risk Group and the Seismic Performance Prediction Program (SP3), Haselton’s research is in the area of performance-based earthquake engineering, with focuses on building code development, collapse safety assessment, ground motion selection and scaling, damage and loss estimation, and the treatment of uncertainties. He recently served as chair of the BSSC team that is rewriting Chapter 16 of ASCE/SEI 7-16, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.

This webinar will provide an overview of efforts to fully rewrite Chapter 16 for ASCE 7-16, entitled “Seismic Response-History Procedures.” Chapter 16 specifies the response-history analysis design procedures, including ground motion requirements, structural modeling requirements and acceptance criteria. The webinar will cover each aspect of the new design procedure, along with the associated background regarding the basis for each requirement.

Architects who complete the webinar will be eligible to receive one health, safety and welfare (HSW) learning unit (LU) from the American Institute of Architects. Engineers are eligible to receive one professional development hour (PDH). Sign up now to attend the free “Nonlinear Response-History Analysis” webinar on April 28. Space is limited, so don’t wait. Register today.

This is the second webinar in the BSSC’s 2016 monthly series sponsored by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The presentations from the March 22 webinar, “Site Factors,” presented by CB Crouse, PhD, PE, and Nico Luco, PhD, are now available on the BSSC website.

About the NEHRP Recommended Provisions

Under the sponsorship of FEMA, BSSC administers an ongoing consensus-based process of updating and maintaining the NEHRP Recommended Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures. The NEHRP Recommended Provisions and its Commentary embody the state-of-knowledge criteria for design and construction of new buildings subject to earthquake hazards. The new knowledge and technologies contained in this resource document are diffused into the model building codes developed by the International Code Council (ICC) and several national standards, including the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) ASCE/SEI-7 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures. Learn more about the 2015 NEHRP Provisions.

 

About the Building Seismic Safety Council

The Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) is an independent, voluntary membership body representing a wide variety of building community interests related to seismic safety. Its fundamental purpose is to enhance public safety by providing a national forum that fosters improved seismic safety provisions for use by the building community in the planning, design, construction, regulation and utilization of buildings.

 

About the National Institute of Building Sciences

The National Institute of Building Sciences , authorized by public law 93-383 in 1974, is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that brings together representatives of government, the professions, industry, labor and consumer interests to identify and resolve building process and facility performance problems. The Institute serves as an authoritative source of advice for both the private and public sectors with respect to the use of building science and technology.
