WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The National Institute of Building Sciences Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) will host a webinar Thursday, April 28, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET, highlighting content in the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program’s (NEHRP) 2015 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions and ASCE/SEI 7-16, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.
Curt B. Haselton, PhD, PE, professor of civil engineering at the California State University, Chico, will present his research on Chapter 16: Nonlinear Response-History Analysis for the Design of New Buildings, followed by a question-and-answer session with the webinar audience. Professor Haselton’s research focuses on assessing the collapse safety of buildings in earthquakes; this involves issues of ground motion selection and scaling, nonlinear structural modeling and collapse simulation, as well as the treatment of uncertainties (in both the ground motion and the structural modeling). Architects who complete the seminar 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).
This is the second in a series of monthly webinars sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
