Reinforced concrete structure design


This course covers the theory and practice of reinforced concrete design. The structural design process for beams, columns, slabs, frames, flat slabs, footings, and retaining walls uses the ultimate strength design method based on the updated CSA standard A23.3-04 Design of Concrete Structures. The load provisions are consistent with National Building Code of Canada 2(NBCC), and Ontario Building Code (OBC).

Each lecture uses examples to demonstrate practical problem solving according to NBC, OBC and CSA A23.3-04. A 12-storey reinforced concrete office  building employed core walls is used as an example to demonstrate overall design procedure from load calculation, structure analysis involving lateral load including wind load and seismic load, members design including flat slab, shear wall and column design, basement wall and footing design.

Autodesk Revit MEP

 

Revit MEP is an object-based software package for building engineers and designers in the design of mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection. It facilitates the creation of a “Building Information Model” (BIM) in which plans, sections, elevations, 3D models, quantities, materials and other data are fully coordinated and can be manipulated, accessed, and shared. From the BIM database, the user can perform design tasks, query quantities and takeoffs, and generate drawing sheets. From a production point of view, it means less time for drafting and coordinating, because all drawings and reports come from the same parametric model. If this model changes, all “Views”, including floor plans, sections, elevations, or even schedules reflect the change dynamically.

Taking this course and mastering the functionality of Revit MEP will hone your skills and improve your competence in the current harsh job market.

Certified Quality Engineer

Certified Quality Engineer, often abbreviated CQE, is a certification given by the American Society for Quality. These engineers are professionally educated in quality engineering and quality control. The course of Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) is a basic knowledge and skills for a quality engineer. They possess the knowledge needed to set up quality control circles, assess potential quality risks, and evaluate human factors and natural process variation. The characteristics are complete knowledge and fast renewal rate. After you obtain your Certified Quality Engineer, it is very helpful to find a job to be a quality engineer, quality technician, and inspector.
Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB) is similar to a senior quality engineer certified by ASQ. Just as the mass production system of the 20th century, Six sigma black belt is viewed as the production system of the 21th century. It’s successful knowledge and management has been extended to the service sector. The main idea is to make production without waste. Finally company benefit can be maximized.
American Society of Quality (ASQ) is an international quality organization in all kinds of manufacturing (excluding aircraft, nuclear, and food production), ASQ’s successful knowledge and management has been extended to the service area. To certify by ASQ is a bridge to find a professional job in the quality area. In a broad sense, this successful management is very helpful for new immigrants to open their business in North America.
Instructor Robert Lu,  CQE, CSSBB senior member of ASQ, more than ten years CQE and CSSBB instructor experience in Canada.
