Designing the Building Skin for Seismic Movement
1 LU/HSW
A critical component in preserving life safety during a seismic event is the building skin design; however, the building skin design is often overlooked or left to be designed by a third party that does not fully understand how a building will move during a seismic event. This presentation demonstrates how a building moves during a seismic event and how the building skin can be detailed to accommodate these movements and preserve life safety.
Seismic Force Resisting System Layouts
1 LU/HSW
Seismic Force Resisting Systems (SFRS) are required for the lateral stability of a structure. System selection and layout configuration are often determined early in the design phase and can have significant cost and performance impacts. This presentation investigates various SFRS types and configurations for a sample building, compares cost + performance, and illustrates irregularities and mixed systems.
Fundamentals of Wood
1 LU/HSW
Wood is the most prevalent building material in the Intermountain Region and, by nature, has many unique characteristics that must be considered during design. This presentation is to help the architect understand some of the reasons why structural engineers do what they do, which can affect their design. This will help the architect make decisions in the initial design phase, which could save them time and money by avoiding changes required by the structural design. This presentation will also help the architect be better equipped to discuss the structural implications of certain architectural design decisions with their clients.
Introduction to Structural Concrete

Multi-family housing remains a strong market sector in the construction industry. Several recent developments in the building code and market offerings provide owners and architects with many structural options when designing multi-family housing projects.
Seismic Bracing of Nonstructural Components
1 LU/HSW
Seismic bracing of nonstructural components represents the most significant life safety hazard in our buildings. Code requirements to seismically brace nonstructural components are well documented and have been in the code for many years. Unfortunately, these requirements are often not fully met because the responsibility to meet these requirements is typically left to the sub-contractors contracted to install the systems.
Post-Tension Concrete: Basic Considerations for Architects
1 LU/HSW
Let's take the complexity out of post-tension concrete. Concrete is a moldable material that allows for creative shapes and structures. Post-tension concrete provides extra strength and creates very thin elements. This presentation will outline the benefits of using post-tension concrete in various building types while creating a safe and cost-effective design.
Architectural Considerations for Lateral Steel Framing
1 LU/HSW
Steel structures offer a lot of flexibility in how they can be appropriately braced for lateral forces (wind/seismic). Many options are based on configuration, architectural needs, seismic criteria, and costs. This presentation describes the more common systems utilized in the industry and how and when they are used.
Exterior Rain Screen Cladding Systems and Pertinent Structural Requirements
