ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Senior Staff Engineer, Howard Silverman, P.E., will be among the expert speakers at the Structural Engineers Association of Southern California (SEAOSC) June 26 webinar on the 2013 California Building Code (CBC) rules for Concrete Anchorage Emphasizing Post-Installed Adhesively Bonded Anchors.The 2013 CBC and 2012 International Building Code® (IBC) both include requirements to ACI 355.4.

Silverman will discuss updated testing and assessment requirements in AC308 that incorporate ACI 355.4, the adhesive anchor standard referenced in ACI 318-11. ACI 318-11 includes the anchorage to concrete provisions for the 2012 IBC, including new installer certification requirements for adhesive anchors, as well as expanded inspection requirements.

The panel will address new concrete anchorage requirements for adhesive anchors used for structural and nonstructural attachments as it applies to specifiers and code officials. Speakers will explain the relevant changes to Appendix D of ACI 318-11, ASCE 7-10 and changes to testing requirements of ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria 308 (Post-installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements).

“As adhesive anchor evaluation reports from ICC-ES transition from 2009 IBC recognition to the upcoming inclusion of the ACI 355.4 standard required for the 2012 IBC and the 2013 CBC, this webinar is an excellent opportunity to point out major changes that will occur and affect the design, installation and inspection for these types of anchors,” said Silverman.

In addition to Silverman, the panel will include Bernard Cruz, P.E., Field Engineer Manager with Hilti North America, Colin Kumabe, S.E., Chief Metro Plan Check Division in the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, Jason Oakley, P.E., Anchor Systems Field Engineer with Simpson Strong Tie, and a representative from the California Division of the State Architect (DSA).
