To effectively apply the seismic provisions of the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 2010, engineers need a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of earthquake and wind engineering. This webinar covers the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 2010 procedures to calculate the wind and seismic loads on buildings. Different approaches for wind load calculations on buildings using static, dynamic, or experimental methods are discussed. As well, the webinar covers both the static and response spectrum approaches to calculate seismic loads on buildings.

Sophisticated three-dimensional modelling, that truly simulates different types of buildings, requires engineers to understand the complex behavior of different lateral load structural systems and structural modelling using basic knowledge of Finite Element Method. This webinar series provides an opportunity to learn the principles and techniques of structural modelling of different types of structures under lateral loads such as wind and seismic.

Note: It is strongly recommended that you take all four webinars to gain a full understanding of Structural Modelling High-rise and Industrial B... [Read More]

The availability of clean, renewable power is without question going to be the defining challenge and goal of the 21st century, and wind will lead the way. Wind power can realistically not only replace the lion’s share of oil, coal, and natural gas fired electrical plants in the U.S., but also can add enough extra power capacity to allow for most of the cars in the nation to run on electricity.

This Wind Energy Professional course is designed specifically with technicians in mind! Our course covers all aspects of installing and troubleshooting wind turbines, giving technicians the knowledge they need to handle even complex maintenance tasks. This course explains how wind turbine blades harvest wind energy, and how generators convert shaft turning energy into electricity. It shows how electrical and hydraulic systems control the speed of wind turbine blades, energizing blade pitch and yaw position controls. Mechanical subjects such as gears, transmissions and gearboxes are discussed in detail.
