This Week's Featured Presentation

Optimizing Energy Code Compliance for Concrete and Masonry
by William McGinley, University of Louisville

Session details

How to Design and Construct Concrete and Masonry to Comply with New Energy Codes (ACI Fall 2017 Convention, Anaheim, CA)
This session will address and clarify the requirements of the new energy conserving building codes and explain a clear path to compliance using the ACI 122R-14 guide as a reference. Descriptions of methods of optimizing energy performance integrating structural design and design for energy efficiency. This session will explain why energy code compliance and optimization of energy performance are key aspects of sustainable concrete and masonry building construction.

Upcoming Presentations

February 18 – 24

Seismic Performance Assessment of Concrete Bridge Piers Designed Following Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code
by Rashedul Kabir, Qi Zhang and M. Shafria Alam, The University of British Columbia

Session details

Performance-Based Design (ACI Fall 2017 Convention, Anaheim, CA)
This session aims to provide the current knowledge in performance-based design of bridges. Bridges are a critical component of our infrastructure system and failure of bridges is a safety issue. More progress has been made in performance-based design in seismic analysis of buildings than that of bridges. AASHTO seismic requirements are based on the level of ductility of structural members, importance of the structure, level of deformation, and soil conditions. On the other hand, performance-based design is based on having bridge performance achieve defined performance criteria such as strength, ductility, or deformation. The session contains presentations of experimental and/or analytical research focusing on the performance-based design of bridges and bridge components.

February 25 – March 3

Seismic Design of Shape Memory Alloy Reinforced Concrete Bridge Pier
by AHM Muntasir Billah, University of British Columbia; and Shahria Alam, University of British Columbia
