Seminar: Practical Design of Shallow Foundations for Conventional and Pre-engineered Buildings

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

SEAM is planning a full day seminar on the Practical Design of Shallow Foundations for Conventional and Pre-engineered Buildings, presented by Alexander Newman, F.ASCE.

Seminar will be Diamond Approved for 8 pdh’s. PDH hours will be valid in all 50 states.

This seminar covers the design of both basic and complex shallow foundations. It starts with a brief review of foundation basics and continues to the design of shallow foundations for conventional buildings using longhand calculations, reference tables, and software. The larger part of the presentation addresses the unique challenges of designing foundations for pre-engineered metal buildings. Mr. Newman explains the process of estimating column reactions and methods of resisting horizontal forces and uplift on these foundations. The design methods for tie rods, hairpins, downturned slabs, and moment-resisting foundations are explained and illustrated in several design examples. The basics of designing anchor bolts and other embedments to resist tension and shear are also discussed.
