CEE 9513A Course Outline 2015/2016 Design of Lateral Load Structural Systems 1 WESTERN UNIVERSITY - FACULTY OF ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING CEE 9513A Design of Lateral Load Structural Systems Course Outline 2015-2016 This course covers selected design topics that are needed for engineers to pursue a profession as structural engineers. The course extends students’ knowledge and abilities in structural behaviour and design of lateral load structural systems and structure’s foundations. The general objectives are for student to be able to: Understand and quantify the behaviour of buildings with lateral resisting systems consisting of shear walls, frames, or wall-frame systems. Design concrete shear walls and rigid frames under lateral loads in accordance with the provisions of CSA standards CAN/CSA A23.3-14. Design wood shear walls and diaphragms under lateral loads in accordance with the provisions of CSA standards CAN/CSA O86-09. Design masonry shear walls under lateral loads in accordance with the provisions of CSA standards CAN/CSA S304.1-04. Perform analysis and design of structure’s foundations (isolated footings, strip footings, combined footing, raft/mat footings, pile caps, and grade beams) in accordance with the provisions of CSA standards CAN/CSA A23.3-14 and make recommendations based on engineering principles and judgement. Calendar Copy: Topics covered in this course include design of concrete, wood, and masonry buildings under lateral loads, and design of structure’s foundations such as isolated footings, strip footings, combined footing, raft/mat footings, pile caps, and grade beams. Prerequisites: Completion of the Civil and Environmental Engineering program Antirequisites: None Note: It is the students' responsibility to ensure that all prerequisite and antirequisite conditions are met.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
