    DOB COOP 2018 Full Scale Exercise - SEAoNY Members Only!

    To ensure that the New York City Continuity of Operations (COOP) program meets the high standards set out by Executive Order #107, the Department of Buildings Continuity of Operations /Emergency Management Team in in collaboration with FDNY, will complete the mandated annual exercise for all DOB Inspectorial staff and Professionals.

    EXERCISE OBJECTIVES

    I.  Participants’ familiarization with COOP – DAPR (Damage Assessment and Power Restauration) requirements and procedures – operational plan for preparedness, response, and recovery.                                                                       

    II. Test the ability to provide transportation for DOB employees responding to an Incident and/or performing Structural Damage Assessment.

    III.  Familiarization with the Incident Action Plan (IAP) framework, Incident Command System (ICS), Emergency Operation Plan (EOP).

    IV. Demonstrate the capability of department’s inspectorial staff and professional architects and engineers to conduct Rapid and Detailed Structural Damage Assessment.

    V.  Learn how to Conduct Post-Major Disaster Structural Damage Assessments by using Global Positional System the Collector for ArcGIS Application.

    Participants will review the Construction Codes, FEMA and Applied Technical Council (ATC) requirements for Building Damage Assessment process - determine if structures that sustained incident-related damage are safe to enter/occupy:

    • Post Disaster Structural Rapid Assessment (RA)
    • Post Disaster Structural Detailed Assessment (DA)
    • Evaluation of Empirically Designed Structures and what steps will be taken afterwards by recovery / restoration operations.

    Participants will perform field assessments with a timetable, site map, and RA & DA forms on selected buildings within “damage zone,” and be concluded as

    • Green (Inspected) or
    • Yellow (Restricted Use) or
    • RED (Unsafe)
    for ensuring the safety and welfare of building occupants, and further actions to repair, safeguard and re-occupy.

    • Participants are required to wear a hard hat on the day they attend the COOP training exercise

    • DOB COOP Full Scale Exercise training participants are to meet at the parking lot of Fort Totten, preferably by 7:30am. The parking lot is located just before the security gate entrance, and a small sign reading “DOB participants” should be in front of the parking lot.

    • If for some reason you do not find people there, the bulk of the training takes place at the EMS Academy CFR Training Building 405. If people are lost, they should ask Fort Totten employees where that is, and they should be directed to the correct location.

    Please contact Elidia Tennenhauser for scheduling/ coordination questions.

    SEAoNY October Seminar

    Harnessing The Power of AISC Design Guides  

    October 23, 2018

    6:15PM - 8:00PM

     Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place


    Presented By: Margaret A. Matthew, P.E.

    Structural Engineers are called upon to tackle tough analytical problems every day, and AISC has many resources available to make that job a little bit easier. This one‐hour presentation will familiarize you with the great technical resources available in the AISC Design Guide Series. The session will include a general review of the AISC Design Guide Series, including the newest Guides on Rehabilitation and Retrofit (DG 15, 2nd Ed.), Welding (DG 21, 2nd Ed.), Curved Member Design (DG 33), and Steel‐Framed Stairway Design (DG 34). We will also review the most popular Design Guides in the series, paying particular attention to the Design Guides that cover Floor Vibrations (DG 11), Base Plate and Anchor Rod Design (DG 1), and Industrial Building Design (DG 7).

    SEAoNY November Seminar

    Development, Validation and Application of Viscoelastic Coupling Damping for Enhanced Wind and Seismic Performance of High-Rise Buildings


    November 13, 2018

    6:15PM - 8:00PM

     Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place


    Presented By: Professor Constantin Christopoulos

    As high-rise buildings are built taller and more slender, their dynamic behavior becomes an increasingly critical design consideration. Wind loads cause large vibrations which can be perceived by building occupants, while severe earthquakes can cause building damage. To address these design challenges engineers are increasingly turning to advanced damping technologies.


    Viscoelastic Coupling Dampers (VCDs) have been engineered to improve the dynamic performance of tall Reinforced Concrete (RC) buildings for both wind storms and earthquakes. They are configured in place of RC coupling beams or outriggers in multi-story RC buildings and therefore do not use any architectural space. The VCDs exhibit an elastic restoring force as well as a viscous damping force under dynamic loading and when properly configured in the structural system, add supplemental viscous damping to all lateral modes of vibration mitigating both wind and seismic vibrations for a wide range of loading amplitudes. VCDs can also be configured with structural “fuse” elements in the connections, such that at a predefined load the steel connecting elements yield and exhibit a hysteretic response for extreme earthquake loading conditions. After an extreme earthquake, the connecting “fuse” elements can be inspected and if required repaired or replaced. This presentation summarizes the research and development that took place since 2003 at the University of Toronto in collaboration with Nippon Steel USA and Nippon Steel and Sumikin Engineering, including full-scale tests of the VCD. In addition, key results from studies on buildings incorporating the VCD ranging from a wind sensitive 66-story building in Toronto, to a performance-based seismic design of a 46-story building on the west coast and finally a 630-meter Megatall building in Southeast Asia will be presented.



    Speaker Biography

    Constantin Christopoulos, Ph.D., P.Eng., Professor and Canada Research Chair in Seismic Resilience of Infrastructure

    Constantin Christopoulos is a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto. He is the author of more than 130 technical papers, of two textbooks that are used in graduate courses in numerous countries, and the co-inventor on several international patents. 

    Dr. Christopoulos is an associate member of the CSA-S16 Canadian Steel Code Committee, has been involved in a number of high-profile consulting projects involving the implementation of supplemental damping devices in structures, and has presented numerous lectures on advanced seismic engineering and damping systems with an emphasis on high-performance systems.

    Over the past decade, his research at the University of Toronto has pioneered the development and implementation of self-centering structural systems such as braces and frames and rocking structures. His team has also developed advanced damping technologies such as viscoelastic coupling dampers and viscoelastic-plastic devices for both wind and seismic protection of high-rise buildings. He has also been supervising research over the past decade on the use of cast steel in seismic engineering applications, which has led to numerous developments that have been implemented in North America. Professor Christopoulos has also been active in transferring research into practice through two companies that he has co-founded, Cast Connex and Kinetica.
