The MA AEER Task Force is pleased to offer a full-day training on the methods of assessment of the safety and usability of buildings after natural and man-made disasters.
Based on the Applied Technology Council's well-accepted post-disaster methodologies and documentation guidelines ATC-20 and ATC-45 (for earthquake and wind/flood events, respectively), this SAP training course will provide engineers, architects and code-enforcement professionals with an understanding of the basic skills required to perform safety assessments of structures following disasters.
Professional Architects, Engineers, and Building Inspectors will become certified to assist local governments and perform safety evaluations of the built environment in the aftermath of a natural or man-made disaster. Upon completion of this training, participants will be certified to perform post-disaster assessments and will receive a nationally-recognized Cal OES SAP registration ID card from the state of CA. (Valid license numbers will be required for this certification.)
Case studies will be presented and discussed to illustrate examples of possible damage scenarios that a Second Responder could encounter and how to properly assess the damage and record it for later use by emergency management personnel. Attendees will be introduced to the FEMA Incident & Command requirements and protocols for responders operating in a post-disaster theater which will prepare them to take the self-study online courses required of Second Responders in most jurisdictions who wish to perform post-disaster assessments.

Future of Design NYC
June 1, 2019
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
The Educational Alliance/Manny Cantor Center
197 East Broadway, New York, NY
IABSE Future of Design NYC is an annual symposium to energize and provoke discussion in our community encompassing the architecture, engineering, design, and construction industry. The symposium is interactive and broad in its reach, aiming to maximize exchange of innovative ideas through a forum for education and dialogue.
Future of Design NYC’s theme in 2019 is For the People. As a response to the growing desire for design-based action to improve life in the public and social sphere, program sessions examine the collective role of built environment professionals in today’s social, environmental, economic, and political climate. Conversations also look inward at to understand the sustainability and equitability of the industry’s work, and how to empower future engineers to take on a greater voice in built environment initiatives.
The program features presentations and panels that provide critical discussion of local and international projects, as well as debate on approaches that underpin structural engineering and architectural design. Emerging and established voices involved in the creation of the future built environment will provide both technical and qualitative insights on different facets of the theme.
Program sessions address the following topics:
Symposium attendees will also participate in a workshop to explore potential roles in future public policy, adaptive reuse, and shaping the incorporation of technology in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry.

EERI-NYNE Special Lecture
Structure-from-Motion & LIDAR: Computational Imaging Tools for Engineers
May 16, 2019
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
WSP, 1 Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10119
The Civil Engineering community is advancing the use of LIDAR and structure-from-motion (SFM) 3D topographic models for understanding the geometry of complex structural and earth deformations and has greatly benefited from these tools. For civil engineering deformation research, LIDAR & SFM are particularly useful for characterizing the dimensions of failures and for monitoring subtle deformation through time. This presentation will present the two technologies and an evaluation of the accuracy, bias, and dispersion of 3D data under controlled experimental conditions. Examples are given from recent field studies using LIDAR and SFM visualization and analysis from some recent extreme-events investigated by the National Science Foundation-funded GEER association. Ultra-high resolution imagery of complex surfaces allows the exploration and visualization of damage in orientations and scales not previously possible. Detailed understanding of the surface morphology allows for better numerical modeling of potential failure modes, deformation patterns, and morphologies. Finally, LIDAR and SFM technology provides for the permanent archiving of 3-D terrain.
