Hello STAC Members,

STAC was pleased to host on January 17 the first part of a two-part webinar on Site-Specific Wind Load Calculations, with expert content provided by International Climatic Evaluation Inc. (I.C.E.) engineers Simon Weisman and Boris Weisman.

A recording of this webinar is now available, and can be accessed through the Dropbox link here.

Please note that we are also working in the days ahead to provide a separate audio recording of the webinar presentation to reduce the number of audio interruptions caused by people entering and leaving the webinar. We will also disable entry/exit tones during Part II of this webinar (on January 24) to facilitate a better user experience.

Finally, note that invitations have already been sent out to members of the STAC Engineering Guidelines & Practices Committee for the follow-up webinar on January 24.

The presentation outline for the follow-up webinar is as follows:

Site-specific derivation of wind (ICE and ECCC)
