Upon completion of this overview course, learners will be better able to:

- Describe where to apply Part 4 and Part 9 in the structural design of buildings,

- Find climatic and seismic data necessary for the structural design of buildings,

- Identify the different types of structural loads,

- Classify building by their Importance Category,

- Calculate and verify load combinations for give loading scenarios,

- Calculate and verify dead and live loads, and other combinations for buildings,

- Verify calculations for determining wind loads, using the static method,

- Identify specific earthquake provisions that apply to buildings and portions of buildings

Using Part 4:

- Calculate the specific snow and rain loads using Part 4 with given factors,

- Relate the code provisions for anchor systems and special structures including parking structures and air-supported structures,

- Recognize the importance of design of excavations and backfilling, including dewatering

For Part 9 buildings:

- Identify the importance of spans in determining snow loads,

- Recognize the limitations of conventional footings and provisions for alternate foundation types,
