SEMINAR: Wood has become the material of choice for sustainably-minded designers due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, speed of construction, and positive environmental performance. This seminar is geared toward those structural engineers and structural design technologists wanting to expand their proficiency and knowledge of timber engineering. Sessions include Intro to Mass Timber (Design for Gravity Loads), Connections in Mass Timber, and Lateral Load Design of CLT Shearwall. The seminar will be taught by Ghasan Doudak, Ph. D., P. Eng., Professor of Structural Engineering, Civil Engineering Department, University of Ottawa. His area of expertise includes multi-scale understanding of how complete structural systems function, encompassing issues such as how complete buildings respond to effects of wind storms, ground shaking during earthquakes, or other actions like impacts and blasts.
