Aluminum Structural Design with The 2010 Aluminum Design Manual (71202013)
Instructor - Randy Kissell, P.E.
The biggest change in aluminum structural design in 43 years has just occurred - the Specification for Aluminum Structures, the bible of aluminum structural design, has undergone its first reorganization since its original edition in 1967. Included in the many changes are major revisions regarding safety and resistance factors, new alloys, and changes to welded member design. This 1 ½ day seminar is intended to bring you up to speed in the new aluminum specification so you can design with it as confidently as you would in steel or concrete.

Design and Strengthening of Shallow Foundations for Conventional and Pre-Engineered Buildings (71212013)
Instructor - Alexander Newman, P.E., F.ASCE
This practical seminar provides a broad overview of the issues encountered by foundation designers. It starts with a brief discussion of soil types and how to determine their bearing capacities. The instructor explains the basics of wall and column footing design using longhand calculations, reference tables, and software. The participants follow several step-by-step design examples for combined, cantilever, and eccentric column footings. The discussion proceeds to the unique challenges of designing foundations for pre-engineered metal buildings, including estimating column reactions and methods of resisting horizontal forces and uplift on foundations.

Designing Non-Building Structures Using ASCE 7-10 - New Seminar! (71222013)
Instructor - Dave K. Adams, P.E., S.E.
This seminar will provide tools for a practicing engineer to design efficient non-building structures using the requirements of ASCE 7-10. Some of this efficiency comes with an ability to recognize the limitations of prescriptive code requirements and to produce a defensible design using time-tested principles of engineering mechanics. Much of the focus is given to seismic design, but other loading conditions, such as machine vibration and wind pressure, will also be addressed. Practical design examples will be used throughout the seminar to illustrate discussed principles. Alternative methods of design are often sought for non-building structures, as code prescriptions do not always define them well enough. This seminar will be useful in assisting engineers to give consideration to any type of non-building structure with an appropriate classification and design methodology.

Financial Management for the Professional Engineer (71232013)
Instructor - David Wahby
One of the most common concerns of managers and leaders of architectural, engineering and planning firms is understanding and managing the financial health of their practice. This seminar teaches the design professional how to read and interpret the income statement, including gross revenue, net revenue, direct and reimbursable expenses, indirect expenses, net profit before taxes, depreciation, gross profit and net profit after taxes. It examines the primary benchmarks of performance: multiplier, utilization rate, direct personal expense ratio, and overhead. In addition, the seminar examines the balance sheet components of assets (current, fixed and other), liabilities (current and long-term loans), and stakeholder equity. Important benchmarks such as current ratio, quick ratio, receivable turn, aging receivables, and debt to equity ratio are also explored. For more information and to register, click here.
HEC-HMS Computer Workshop (71242013)
Instructors - Siavash Beik, P.E., CFM, D.WRE, M.ASCE, Thomas Burke, Ph.D., P.E., CFM, D.WRE, M.ASCE, and Scott J. Kenner, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE
This intensive two-day seminar and workshop provides practical hands-on training in the use of the HEC-HMS software, the Corps of Engineers HEC-1 for windows. Learn to apply HEC-HMS for the typical hydrologic analyses required in so many projects. Seminar price includes software and course notes. For more information and to register, click here.
Low Impact Development (LID) Applications for Water Resource Management (71252013)
Instructor - Rodney Frederick, P.E., D.WRE, F.ASCE
Low Impact Development (LID) is an innovative approach to stormwater management that is being implemented by planners, engineers and developers, and being promoted by federal agencies, state and local governments for aquatic resource protection and regulatory compliance. LID is a site level stormwater management design approach with an objective of maintaining the hydrologic cycle or meeting targeted watershed and NPDES objectives. This seminar will focus on the engineering and technical issues associated with the planning, engineering, and construction of LID. It will give the practicing engineer a foundation to begin to design LID projects and incorporate LID into local stormwater management programs. For more information and to register, click here.
Managing the Design Process - Keeping on Schedule, Within Budget, and Selecting the Right Resources (71262013)
Instructors - Lonny Simonian, P.E., P.M.P. and Thomas M. Korman, P.E., P.L.S.
This seminar provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage the design process and prepare construction documents. Specific time and cost management skills, as well as quality control/assurance techniques, will be presented to enable design engineers, engineering consultants, and civil service professionals to produce cost effective construction documents for building and civil infrastructure projects. For more information and to register, click here.
Wind Loads for Buildings and Other Structures - Newly Updated! (71272013)
Instructor - Jon D. Raggett, Ph.D., P.E., S.E., M.ASCE
This seminar addresses wind effects, provides guidelines for assessing design wind loads for buildings and other structures, and offers a discussion of the advantages of wind tunnel testing. This seminar is based on the ASCE publications “Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 7-10)” and “Significant Changes to the Wind Provisions of ASCE 7-10.” While much of the instruction focuses on assessing wind loads, a portion of the seminar is directed to review wind damage experience of the past thirty years and lessons learned from the experience. Discussion in the seminar will focus on the new ASCE 7-10 Standard. For more information and to register, click here.
