The Concrete Industry Board Presents
Parking Structures: The Parallels of Code & Inspection
November 16, 2023
12:00 - 1:30 PM
Presented by: Yagal Shamash, P.E., Assistant Commissioner, Investigative Engineering Services, NYC Department of Buildings
This presentation will discuss key measures needed to ensure the structural stability of existing parking structures. The course will cover data that is relevant to parking structures in New York City that led to the development of the new Code ad Rule. We will discuss different incidents that we are hoping to avoid by enacting these Code changes, and delve into some of the details of the pending rule and how one can become a Qualified Parking Structure Inspector (QPSI).
Participants will be able to identify the maintenance difficulties, inspection nuances, and the details of the code requirements for different types of parking structures. Lastly, we will discuss the new proposed rule for an early initial observation.

WASHINGTON, DC –The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has published a new research report, “RP23-02: Influence of Support Attachment Pattern on the Out-of-Plane Buckling Capacity of Steel Deck.” RP23-02 is available for free download in the AISI Design Resources section at www.buildusingsteel.org.
The research was undertaken to determine if the diaphragm testing used to develop AISI S310-20, North American Standard for the Design of Profiled Steel Diaphragm Panels, 2020 Edition, could be verified for new buckling limit states that will be required for higher-strength steel deck fasteners currently in development.
“This research provides more accurate predictions of strength and stiffness for higher-strength fasteners which will lead to more reliable and robust structures and more economical and sustainable design solutions for steel deck,” said Jay Larson, P.E., F.ASCE, managing director of AISI’s Construction Technical Program.
Larson noted that RP23-02 is the result of a project selected through AISI’s Small Project/Fellowship Program, which identifies and provides funding for research projects that will significantly impact the reliability, performance and cost-competitiveness of cold-formed steel in construction. The research is conducted by project teams which include a student, an academic advisor from the student’s academic institution and an industry advisor.
The RP23-02 project team included Divyansh R. Kapoor, graduate research assistant and Ph.D. candidate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst; Kara D. Peterman, associate professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst; and Brian Bogh, industry advisor and senior research engineer at NUCOR/Vulcraft Group.
AISC in tandem with Severud Associates and Empire State Development Corporation Present:
A Celebration of Moynihan Train Hall
Thursday, October 19, 2023
5:30 - 7:30 PM
Moynihan Train Hall
350 West 33rd Street
New York, NY 10001
Get an inside look at New York City's new grand rail entrance! Join AISC for an IDEAS2 Awards Reception and walking tour with the project team themselves as they highlight what makes the structure so special. The completion of Moynihan came five decades after the demolition of the original Penn Station. The addition of a steel-framed, skylit boarding concourse to the 20th-century building that formerly housed New York’s James A. Farley Post Office increased the station’s public space by 50%. This event is part of SteelDays 2023.

As part of SEAoNY’s mission to advance the art of structural engineering by building a community of colleagues, the Diversity Committee seeks to practice intentional inclusion and equity by identifying the myriad ways our membership is diverse. We are beginning this journey with an anonymous self-identification survey open to all SEAoNY members. Data collected from this survey will be used to develop more inclusive and responsive programming for our membership. Key demographic information will be shared at the Diversity event on October 31. This survey is the beginning of our long-term journey to better serve our members’ needs and perspectives. Your contributions to the survey will enhance SEAoNY.
