Coastal Construction - Determining Site-Specific Loads

COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Determining Site-Specific Loads
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides guidance on determining site-specific loads from high winds, flooding, and seismic events through illustrating important concepts and best practices in accordance with building codes and standards.

The main purpose of the process of determining site-specific loads is to design and construct coastal residential buildings to prevent flotation, collapse, or lateral movement due to the effects of wind and water loads acting simultaneously. The loads and load combinations used in this presentation are required by ASCE 7-10 unless otherwise noted and all calculations, analyses, and load combinations are based on Allowable Stress Design (ASD).

This 1 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily for structural engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the following site-specific loads for coastal buildings: dead loads; live loads; snow loads; flood loads; tsunami loads; wind loads; tornado loads; and seismic loads
  • Calculating the load combinations for coastal buildings
