This 8 hour course (4 modules) focuses on practical and economical solutions for framing a typical industrial building to the requirements of the 2010 National Building Code of Canada and the pertinent provisions of CSA Standard S16-14. Whenever possible, relevant provisions in the soon to be published NBCC 2015 will be discussed. The course material will reference the new third edition of the Crane-Supporting Steel Structures: Design Guide and feature a completely reworked design example.
This course also has the following goals:
Identify the unique environmental and mechanical loading conditions in industrial buildings
Learn the applicability and limitations of current codes and standards in Canada, with a comparison to other jurisdictions
Select the most cost effective framing schemes
Tips for cost effective design
Design crane-supporting girders, stepped columns, purlins and girts, lateral force resisting systems, roof trusses and efficient connections
Understand serviceability considerations and limitations
Design for high and low temperatures
Learn the implications of seismic provisions for these structures
Other topics include fatigue, standing seam roofs, rehabilitation, tolerances and coatings
Who should benefit?
Structural engineers and others who design steel structures
Inspectors and code officials involved in the approvals process
Detailers, erectors and other industry personnel who connect structural steel components
Professors and lecturers involved in teaching steel design courses
