Registration Open for EERI Nonstructural Elements Seminar



Registration is now open at for a 2011 one-day EERI technical seminar on Seismic Design and Performance of Nonstructural Elements, to be held Thursday, October 27, in San Francisco, CA; Friday, October 28, in Seattle, WA; Thursday, November 3, in Los Angeles, CA; Friday, November 4, in San Diego, CA. The registration site has a link to the seminar brochure PDF that has details on the program, presenters, venues, and a printable form to register by fax or mail, if preferred. 

Learn about the performance of nonstructural elements in recent earthquakes, current large-scale experimental research, present code requirements, the updated and newly released FEMA E-74 guide on nonstructural design, and implementation of new requirements for equipment certification. In several recent earthquakes, costs from nonstructural damage exceeded costs due to structural damage because of severe impacts to mechanical, architectural, electrical, and plumbing systems. Only 15-25% of original construction costs are for the structure, and this EERI Technical Seminar puts the spotlight on the other 75-85% of the investment.

Registration fees are $225 for EERI and cosponsor members, $300 for nonmembers, and $125 for EERI student and young professional members. Attendees will receive a notebook of seminar presentations and lunch plus earn 6 Professional Development Hours. The seminar is financially supported by FEMA/Department of Homeland Security.
