La formation est présentée en anglais.
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.

|Montreal Section held first conference of the year
The guest speaker was National Past President, Dr. Susan Tighe. She shared her career story to date as well as many of the valuable lessons that she has learned thus far. The path she took from chemical engineering, to working as a female engineer in construction, to her responsibilities at Waterloo was inspiring.
Her presentation on Leadership in Engineering was followed by a cocktail sponsored by the Young Professionals to support networking between those starting their careers and those with much more experience.
Local members are looking forward to the next conference, with a focus on the Champlain Bridge, at the end of October.
|Dr. Easa receives the IAAM Medal for 2018 from IAAM Secretary General, Dr. Ashutosh Tiwari, at the European Advanced Materials Congress, held in Stockholm, Sweden
Dr. Said Easa, a past CSCE Board member, has been honoured with the prestigious IAAM Medal for 2018 from the International Association of Advanced Materials (over 50,000 members from 139 countries) for his “notable and outstanding research in the Advanced Materials Science & Technology.”
The award (medal and certificate) was presented to Dr. Easa by the IAAM Secretary General, Dr. Ashutosh Tiwari, during the award ceremony at the European Advanced Materials Congress on August 21, 2018, Stockholm, Sweden. The Congress included four symposiums, attended by 700 participants. The title of Dr. Easa’s presentation at the congress was “New Superpave Asphalt Mix Design Method Considering Uncertainty.”
Superpave (Superior Performing Asphalt Pavements) is a multi-million joint US-Canada project (1988-1993) and is currently the predominantly design method. The method consists of five complex phases: select binder, select trial (aggregate) blends, evaluate trial blends, select design binder content, and check moisture susceptibility. Surprisingly, uncertainty was considered only in Phase 1. Recognizing this gap last year, Dr. Easa has incorporated uncertainty into Phases 2-5 and published four papers (one for each phase) in the Journal of Testing and Evaluation, American Society of Testing and Materials. The research was well received by the pavement design community.

I have spent a lifetime as a civil engineer and general contractor contributing to building this city.
Additionally, through our philanthropic endeavours, my wife Helen and I have had the privilege and pleasure of supporting important organizations within the city of London and region. Our greatest gift has been the 13 children, grandchildren and great-grandchild who are now contributing in their own way to our great city.
As a citizen, I have watched the issue of the bus rapid transit (BRT) plan become the major talking point of this election.
Architects faced some challenges coming up with a design for Fredericton's new courthouse and a way to redevelop and preserve the best of the Centennial Building on the same site.
The new courthouse will be connected to what remains of the Centennial Building, the home of many provincial government offices before they moved across the street five years ago.
