2019 Spring Seminar: FEMA P-2006 - ASCE 41 Design Examples

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 & Wednesday, March 20, 2019

 

Introduction to FEMA P-2006, Example Application Guide for ASCE/SEI 41-13 Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings with Additional Commentary for ASCE/SEI 41-17 
 
Registration includes a physical copy of FEMA P-2006

 

 

Since its original publication in 2006, ASCE/SEI 41, Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings, has become the consensus U.S. national standard for seismic evaluation and retrofitting. However, the methods in ASCE/SEI 41 are different in many ways from those used in the design of new buildings and can be challenging for those unfamiliar with its procedures. To assist users of the standard, the Applied Technology Council, with funding provided by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency and with assistance from SEAOC, published an example application guide for ASCE/SEI 41, referred to as the FEMA P-2006 document. FEMA P-2006 provides helpful guidance on the interpretation and the use of ASCE/SEI 41 through a set of step-by-step illustrated design examples that cover key selected topics.

 

Drawing from FEMA P-2006 material, this seminar will provide an overview of ASCE/SEI 41, including a discussion of its foundational principles, performance objectives, analysis procedures, and acceptance criteria. Following the overview, the seminar will present example applications for steel braced frame, tilt-up concrete, steel moment frame, and concrete shear wall buildings. The target audience for this seminar is both practicing engineers who have limited or no experience with ASCE/SEI 41 and those engineers who have used it in the past but have specific questions.

 

 Night 1: Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

  • Part 1: Introduction and Overview (Bret Lizundia, Rutherford + Chekene)
  • Part 2: Performance Objectives, Analysis Procedures, and Acceptance Criteria (Brian McDonald, Exponent)

Speaker Biographies:

Bret Lizundia, Rutherford + Chekene

Bret Lizundia is a structural engineer and principal at Rutherford + Chekene in San Francisco.  He has over 30 years of experience in structural design of new buildings, seismic evaluation and rehabilitation of existing buildings, peer review and plan checking, and applied research and guideline development.  He was project manager and coauthor of FEMA 547 Techniques for Seismic Rehabilitation of Existing Buildings, a coauthor of FEMA 306/307 Evaluation of Earthquake Damaged Concrete and Masonry Wall Buildings, Project Technical Director for the update to FEMA P-154 Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards, and the Project Technical Director for ATC-124 project that led to the publication of FEMA P-2006.  He is a past president of the Applied Technology Council and the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California. 

 

Brian McDonald, Exponent

Dr. McDonald specializes in structural analysis and design, material behavior, and construction technology with focus on issues surrounding structural damage assessment and repair methods. For 30 years, he has led evaluations of structures damaged by wind, snow, explosion, fire, construction problems, design defects, decay and corrosion, as well as hundreds of structures damaged by all recent major U.S. earthquakes.  He is active in the development of codes and standards, and was recently appointed to ASCE’s Nuclear Standards Committee.  In addition to damage investigations, Dr. McDonald also provides peer review services for structural design of complex structures, including safety-critical nuclear structures.  Dr. McDonald has held several positions in the fields of structural engineering and software design, most recently as Chief Analyst at Krawinkler, Luth, and Associates, and has taught a graduate level course in Finite Element Analysis at Stanford University

 

Mark Moore, ZFA Structural Engineers

Mark A. Moore is a structural engineer and principal at ZFA Structural Engineers in the Bay Area, California.  He has 30 years of experience in structural design of new buildings, seismic evaluation and rehabilitation of existing buildings and bridges, peer review and plan checking, and consults with public and private entities regarding seismic risk of their building portfolios.  He has contributed to FEMA 547 Techniques for Seismic Rehabilitation of Existing Buildings, the ATC-124 project that led to the publication of FEMA P-2006, and assisted with the development of the analysis, concrete and foundation chapters of ASCE 41.

 

Ron LaPlante, California Division of the State Architect

Ron LaPlante, S.E., is a Supervising Structural Engineer with the Division of the State Architect (DSA) and is responsible for overseeing all structural plan review for schools in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties.   He has been at the DSA for 13 years and served as the engineer responsible for promulgating the DSA structural amendments in the 2013 and 2016 California Building Code.  He is active in building code development and is a member of the ASCE 7 Seismic Subcommittee.  He is a contributing author to the ATC-124/FEMA P-2006 Example Application Guide for ASCE 41-13.  Prior to joining DSA, Ron was a practicing structural engineer focused on seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings and new building design.   Ron earned a BS from Cal Poly Pomona and a MS from UC Berkeley.

 

Mike Braund, Degenkolb Engineers

Michael Braund is a Principal and Office Director of Degenkolb Engineers’ San Diego office. Michael is a California-licensed Structural Engineer and is an active contributor to the seismic code development process. His professional career has been focused on the design and seismic retrofit of critical buildings. He is also an active member on ASCE’s standards committee that produces ASCE/SEI 41 Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings, and has served as Chair of the Structural Engineers Association of California’s Existing Buildings Committee.  Michael was a member of the Project Technical Committee for the ATC-124 project that developed FEMA P-2006.  He is a past president of the Structural Engineers Association of San Diego.
