LATERAL LOAD DESIGN OF CLT SHEARWALL
November 2 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm PDT – CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THIS SESSION ONLY
CSA provisions for CLT shearwalls will be introduced at this workshop, as well as topics such as kinematic behaviour, segment aspect ratio, ductility and capacity-based design. Analytical solutions based on research will be presented along with application of design concepts and use of static equilibrium.
Instructor: Dr. Ghasan Doudak, Ph. D., P. Eng., Professor of Structural Engineering, Civil Engineering Department, University of Ottawa
Dr. Ghasan Doudak is full professor of structural engineering at the University of Ottawa. His area of expertise includes multi-scale understanding of how complete structural systems function, encompassing issues such as how complete buildings respond to effects of wind storms, ground shaking during earthquakes, or other actions like impacts and blasts. Prior to joining the Engineering Faculty, Dr. Ghasan Doudak held the position of Manager, Wood and Structural Standards at the Canadian Wood Council.
He is a member of the National Building Code Standing Committee on Structural Design, CSA O86 Technical Committee on Engineering Design in Wood, CSA s850 Technical Committee on Blast Resistant Buildings, and board member and treasurer of Canadian Association for Earthquake Engineering (CAEE).
