Wind Design: A New, Can’t Miss Seminar from SEAOC & NCSEA

Wind Design: A Seminar Delivered to You by Structural Engineering Experts

The Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) and NCSEA have teamed up to deliver a brand new Web-Based Seminar for you on the massively-popular, newly-published Wind Design Manual. The Wind Design Seminar will follow the Manual and cover the following topics: enclosure classification, topographic effects, exposure category, gust effect factor, a series of full building examples, and several solar PV problems. Each presentation will provide examples of IBC 2018/ASCE 7-16 problems that include a discussion of the provisions in the standard, along with a step-by-step approach to solving the problem.
This seminar is critical to practicing structural engineers, trained designers, building department engineers, plan review agencies, professors and students from across the nation as you can all learn from these examples of code-compliant designs engineered to achieve good performance under wind loading. 
The registration fee for the Seminar is $495 for members ($800 for nonmembers), which includes all 9 hours of education and an electronic copy of the recently-released Wind Design Manual. Each individual webinar can be purchased separately for $195 for members ($250 for nonmembers). The Wind Design Manual may also be purchased separately for $82.50.

The seminar schedule is as follows:

  • April 7, 2020 – Introduction to the Wind Design Manual, Enclosure Classification, and Topographic Effects
  • April 14, 2020 – Exposure Category, Surface Roughness and Gust Factor
  • April 21, 2020 – Wind Loads on Buildings: Directional Procedure
  • April 28, 2020 – Wind Loads on Buildings: Envelope Procedure and Directional Procedure
  • May 5, 2020 – Solar PV: Wind Load Considerations
  • May 12, 2020 – Solar PV: Seismic and Gravity Load Considerations and Solar Carport
Recordings of the webinars will be available to those that purchased single webinars or the Bundle, to view at any time after the live seminar. The entire series will provide 9.0 PDHs; 1.5 per individual webinar.

Please note: These webinars are not included in the NCSEA Webinar Subscription. More information about the seminar series can be found here. If you have any questions, please contact us at 312-649-4600 or
