SEAMi - CMU Storm Shelters - Saginaw Valley

Concrete Masonry Storm Shelters: Lessons Learned 

Speaker: Scott Walkowicz, Walkowicz Consulting Engineers

Due to its inherent strength and aesthetic potential, concrete masonry is a prime system of choice for meeting the 2015 International Building Code (IBC) storm shelter requirements. Join Scott Walkowicz for “lessons learned” while performing recent storm shelter conceptual masonry designs. Discussion includes: introduction of storm shelter code provisions, storm shelter loading, potential wall widths and heights, expected reinforcement and anchorage levels, and tips for optimizing concrete masonry storm shelters.

After the seminar attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the development the sheltering requirements
  • Discuss concrete masonry attributes that promote safe storm shelter designs.
  • Relate required storm shelter loading to concrete masonry systems.
  • Generalize reinforcement and anchorages for concrete masonry storm shelters.
  • List two tips for optimizing concrete masonry systems for storm shelter design.

TMS Webinar on Strength Design of Masonry

STRENGTH DESIGN OF MASONRY WEBINAR 

The first in TMS’s monthly second Thursday webinar series is now open for registration!

Strength design was added to the TMS 402 Building Code for Masonry Structures in 2002. However, most masonry is still designed by the Allowable Stress Design method. Strength design generally results in more efficient designs than with Allowable Stress Design. This webinar will review the design assumptions for strength design, and look at the design of beams, bearing walls, and shear walls using strength design. Practical design methods and tips will be provided for each member type, and examples will illustrate the design process. The results of each design will be compared to allowable stress design. This webinar will provide the engineer with the tools necessary to begin using strength design for masonry, and realizing the benefits it can offer. For more information on the webinar or to register, click here.


FREE Webinar - New Support for Masonry Modeling in Revit

The first webinar for REVIT users has been scheduled for October 13, 2017 at 10am Central time.  Titled “New Support for Masonry Modeling in Revit”, the one-hour webinar will have the developer, Tom Cuneio, give tips and techniques.

The webinar is free from MCAA and we thank them for hosting!  Register today for the webinar.

While MCAA is the host, it’s very important to note that the webinar is for all REVIT users interested in masonry whether they be contractors, architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers, etc.
