Lifelong Learning / Formation Continue
Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto — September 17 – 26, 2018
The CSCE and the Canada Masonry Design Centre (CMDC) have developed this course on the new changes to the 2014 edition of the CSA S304, which are viewed as a substantial improvement to the 2004 standard. Bennett Banting, Ph.D., P.Eng., Masonry Research and Development Engineer at the Canada Masonry Design Centre (CMDC), presents a detailed overview of these changes as well as design examples that illustrate how masonry seismic design has evolved to meet the requirements of the 2015 NBCC.

Pour la première fois en près de 50 ans d'histoire, les câbles porteurs du pont Pierre-Laporte font l'objet d'une inspection en profondeur depuis lundi. De plus, 7 des 160 suspentes de l'ouvrage seront remplacées. À l'approche du début des travaux, Radio-Canada a obtenu un accès privilégié à la structure qui relie Québec et Lévis.
|CSCE Fellow and Distinguished Professor Emeritus Ralph Haas receives the U of Alberta's honorary doctor of science degree
Ralph Haas is known in the engineering world as “the father of pavement asset management.” His pioneering concepts and technologies have resulted in better-performing, safer and less costly road networks. The author of 12 books and numerous technical articles on pavement and infrastructure asset management, he is also an educator whose students have become leaders in transportation agencies, consultancies and universities. Haas is a member of the Order of Canada, fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, fellow of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and Diamond Jubilee medals, and U of A Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.
|'Theory and Practice of Water and Wastewater Treatment'
The second edition of the popular textbook, "Theory and Practice of Water and Wastewater Treatment," (John Wiley & Sons) will be available by the end of August, just in time for the Fall semester. Co-authors are Ronald Droste and Ronald Gehr, both fellows of CSCE. The book has been fully updated and is suitable as a senior-level undergraduate text, thoroughly covering both water and wastewater treatment. Included is a Lite version of the GPS-X wastewater treatment modelling software. Available as an e-book and hard cover, with solutions manual for instructors.
The Canadian Red Cross is looking to expand its register of professionals who work in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) field with international field experience that can be eventually deployed as delegates in responses in Canada and abroad.

The public review of CSA S16-19 Steel Structures for Buildings has commenced. You are encouraged to let your colleagues and others know that they can review and comment on the draft at CSA’s Public Review Site at https://publicreview.csa.ca/Home/Details/3093. The 60-day public review concludes on September 24th.
CSA S157-17 / S157.1-17 Strength Design in Aluminum was published in late 2017. It is available in both English and French @ http://shop.csa.ca/en/canada/structures/s157-17s1571-17/invt/27007262017. This standard applies to the design, fabrication, erection, and inspection of aluminum alloy members and assemblies. It is for building applications, but it is written in a form that it may be used for all types of aluminum load-bearing components or assemblies.

A replacement bridge under construction at the nation's second-busiest port isn't just a crucial route for cargo trucks and Southern California commuters -- it's a concrete-and-steel science experiment for engineers and seismologists.
The new bridge, which will stretch 8,800 feet (2,680 metres) over the Port of Long Beach, is being built with about 75 seismic sensors that will measure the forces imparted on the span when one of several nearby faults set off an earthquake. It will replace the Gerald Desmond Bridge, though it's unclear if it will retain that name.
Repairs on a vital rail link to northern Manitoba are set to begin immediately, the federal government said Friday, following a deal to sell the flood-damaged line leading to the remote town of Churchill.
The community of roughly 1,000 people — Canada's only deep-water Arctic port — has been without a land route since the railway flooded in May 2017. The closure drove up costs for fuel and food, which had to be brought in by air or ship.

A new survey from Statistics Canada seems to confirm what Quebecers already know a good chunk of the province's road network is in pitiful shape.
The agency's first nationwide public infrastructure survey included an inventory of publicly owned road by province.
And Quebec respondents were more inclined than counterparts elsewhere to answer "poor" or "very poor" when asked to assess the quality of roads in the province.
Premier Doug Ford has taken another step toward actualizing his campaign promise of uploading responsibility for Toronto's subways to the province, announcing Friday that a special advisor has been appointed to head up the effort.
Michael Lindsay, a former vice president of commercial projects at Infrastructure Ontario — where he, according to the province, worked to modernize public assets — will serve in the advisor's role. He also has extensive experience in the private sector.
The Independent Contractors and Business Association is asking the B.C. Supreme Court to strike down the provincial government's new hiring model for taxpayer-funded construction projects.
The association filed a petition Monday with the court alongside several other building and trade organizations, as well as the BC Chamber of Commerce and two unions it says are not affiliated with the building trades: the Christian Labour Association of Canada and Canada West Construction Union.
The Federal Court of Appeal's ruling that consultations for the Trans Mountain project were inadequate has raised concerns from the resources industry about added uncertainty around the duty to consult Indigenous communities, though experts say the precedent adds further clarity to what it means to meaningfully engage.
Thursday's ruling found the federal government failed in its duty to meaningfully consult with First Nations on major projects as required by established legal principles and Indigenous rights.
