01.20.15: AISC TR Higgins lecture: Statics, Strength, Ductility, and the Uniform Force Method

Larry S. Muir was awarded the T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award based on his paper “Designing Compact Gussets with the Uniform Force Method,” which generalized the Uniform Force Method and provided the first published derivation of the method. His lecture will use this topic as a starting point to explore more generally the use of the lower bound theorem of plastic analysis. Simple examples will illustrate the benefits and limitations of this powerful but often overlooked tool.

Larry S. Muir is Director of Technical Assistance for the American Institute of Steel Construction’s Steel Solutions Center. Larry has been involved with structural steel in one form or another for over 20 years. After a brief time with an engineering office doing main member design and receiving his Master’s degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, he went to work for Cives Steel Company, where over the course of 12 years he participated in the design and fabrication of numerous large-scale projects, including high-rises, stadiums, and power plants. He then provided consulting services to fabricators, erectors, engineers, and the AISC Steel Solutions Center.

Larry is a member of both the AISC Specification and Manuals Committees and a member of the SEI Committee on the Design of Steel Building Structures. He has authored or co-authored numerous papers, articles, seminars and book chapters on connection design and steel fabrication.

This event is sponsored by Cives Steel Company and will take place at the Center for Architecture 536 LaGuardia Pl, New York, NY 10012

Registration opens at 5:45pm. Seminar begins promptly at 6:15pm

For SEAoNY members, registration is $25 in advance or $35 at the door.
For non-members, registration is $40 in advance or $50 at the door.
For student members, registration is $5.

1.5 PDH Credits

Advanced registration closes at noon the day before the event.

02.17.15: ACI 562 - Development of a Building Code for Repair of Existing Concrete Structures

The repair of existing concrete structures can represent a significant challenge to design professionals, owners, building officials and contractors. The challenges arise due to a myriad of questions regarding the necessary extent of repairs, responsibilities during the project and uncertainties regarding governing code requirements. The concept of a building code for repair of existing concrete structures has been discussed for nearly thirty years. However, a major sticking point for the development of a concrete repair code was the relationship of a repair code with both ACI 318 and general building codes such as the International Building Code (IBC). The development of the International Existing Building Code (IEBC) has provided design professionals a pathway that delineates code requirements for repair and alterations of existing structures. However, the IEBC does not provide detailed code requirements that address the unique challenges of how to evaluate damaged concrete structures and how to ensure a long-term service life of both the repaired area and the repaired structure.

In 2013, the ACI 562 Code for Evaluation, Repair and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures (ACI 562) was published by the American Concrete Institute. ACI 562 was specifically developed to provide design professionals with a code for the repair of existing concrete structures and represents the first material specific repair code in US practice and the first code specifically developed to be integrated with the IEBC. ACI 562 includes specific provisions for:

  • Evaluation of existing structures;
  • Load and resistance factors;
  • Design of repairs;
  • Durability requirements; and
  • Quality assurance.

    ACI 562 was developed to be performance-based (in contrast to prescriptive) to provide engineers the maximum amount of flexibility in developing repair solutions. The document’s extensive commentary, including a comprehensive list of references, provides guidance to design professionals using the code. The paper and presentation will describe the development of ACI 562, the relationship of ACI 562 with other building codes and the impact of the code on typical concrete repair project.

    Keith Kesner PhD, PE, SE is a structural engineer with over 20 years of professional experience in the evaluation of existing structures. He is a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and an active member of the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI). He is the author/co-author of over 100 publications and presentations on a variety of structural engineering topics. He was awarded the 2005 ACI Young Member Award for Professional Achievement and co-awarded the 1998 ACI Construction Practice Award. He currently serves as the Chair of ACI Committee 562, and as member of ACI Committees 318-C, 228 and 364.

    He is a registered Professional Engineer in several states, and a registered Structural Engineer in Massachusetts, Illinois and Hawaii. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from Cornell University and his B.S. degree from the University of Connecticut.

    This event will take place at the Center for Architecture 536 LaGuardia Pl, New York, NY 10012
