Transitioning to the 2016 CBC/2015 IBC (8 AM to 12 Noon): This presentation will discuss the major new features of the 2015 IBC structural provisions. Subjects covered include substantive revisions to structural-related Chapters 16-23, Supplement No. 1 to ASCE 7-10 (which is now adopted by the 2016 CBC/2015 IBC), and referenced standards which have been updated in Chapter 35 of the 2016 CBC/2015 IBC. This seminar is designed to provide a great introduction to the 2016 CBC/2015 IBC and assist the code user in making the transition to the new code.

Gearing up for ACI 318-14 (1 PM to 5 PM): A significant part of this seminar is devoted to the complete reorganization of ACI 318, which has taken place from its 2011 to its 2014 edition, where it is now a member-based document. Toolbox chapters, new chapters, and reshuffled chapters are explained and clarity is provided so that engineers will be “ready to go” when they need to begin working with the new standard in concert with the 2015 IBC. The adoption of ACI 318-14 by the 2016 CBC/2015 IBC and the modifications made by the 2016 CBC/2015 IBC to the provisions of ACI 318-14 are discussed in detail. ACI 318-14 also contains a number of significant technical changes, some of the most important of which are found in Chapter 18, Earthquake Resistant Structures, and Chapter 19, Concrete: Design and Durability Requirements. The significant technical changes will be discussed in detail in this session.
