Practical Wind Engineering

Presented by: Roy Denoon, PhD, PE
Vice President, CPP Wind Engineering Consultant

When determining wind loads for buildings and structures, there are two common routes to compliance: code calculations and wind tunnel testing.
The wind loading provisions of ASCE7-16 can sometimes appear confusing until their basics are understood, and they regularly need pragmatic engineering judgment to apply to typical buildings.
The presentation will cover how to address some common areas of misinterpretation in the code provisions, including unusual building shapes. Comparison with other codes will be provided along with discussion of how to combine data sources. Key limitations of the code will be addressed in addition to changes in ASCE7-16 from ASCE7-10, and an insight into future modifications. The basics of wind tunnel testing will be described with reference to local case studies and issues specific to construction in Colorado.

Design and Construction of PT Buildings - What you need to know

Presented by: Don Kline, PE
Founder and President, Kline Engineering & Consulting, LLC
This presentation provides attendees with the fundamentals of post-tensioning (PT), with primary focus on design and construction of unbonded PT in building construction. The presentation introduces
PT materials basics, including a description of bonded and unbonded PT systems and where each system is typically used. Examples of common floor framing systems and their advantages under varying scenarios are provided. Tips for PT design are covered including a review of a common design flaw restraint to shortening. Attendees are presented with design fundamentals that will allow them to perform simple hand calculations that are important for design verification and when a quick decision is required on the jobsite. The presentation teaches topics almost never taught in prestressed concrete classes, including secondary moments, equivalent frame, and prestress losses. Upcoming ACI 318 Code changes will be covered.
Finally, the presentation reviews the construction process from shop drawings to fabrication to installation. The construction section provides important dos and don'ts for PT construction that every engineer who designs PT buildings should understand.
