Title: Navigating the Changes to the Existing Building Code

Abstract: With the great number of existing buildings in our society, many of which would perform poorly in a major earthquake, it is important to have structural engineers who understand the unique aspects of working with such a diverse group of structures. The state of the art in evaluating and retrofitting existing buildings can be found in ASCE 41 and the new California Existing Building Code. Both of these documents have undergone significant changes recently so it is very important that the engineering community is familiar with these changes. This presentation will provide both new users and those familiar with the codes a look at how the documents are changing and how best to use them in their current form. An overview of the organization of the documents and where to go depending on what you want to do it also provided. Finally, a summary of the major technical engineering changes will be discussed.

Bio: Wayne Brown graduated with both a B.S. and M.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Washington where he conducted research on bar buckling in concrete columns. Over the past 9 years he has been involved on a wide range of projects from small wood structures to large hospital projects including both new design and seismic retrofits. He has particular interests in building information modeling, seismic retrofits, advanced analysis techniques and improving the resiliency of our society. He is also the chair for the SEAOC and SEAOSD existing buildings committees. Wayne is a licensed Structural Engineer in the state of California and is an Associate with Miyamoto International here in San Diego.
