Transmission Structure Design January 27-28, 2014 Chicago, IL

Overview
The increase in demand for electric power has prompted the upgrading and building of new electrical transmission lines across North America. The demand for experienced line designers and structural engineers is ever increasing. This, combined with aging and retiring experienced transmission structural engineers, has made it vital for young and incoming structural engineers to become more familiar with the fundamental aspects of design, manufacturing, and testing of different types of installations. This two day course is designed to provide a practical overview of the important factors and economic efficiencies to consider in design, testing and manufacturing of these structures. The first day will cover structure types, industry standards, loading, and methods of design. The second day will continue design and focus on available software, testing, manufacturing and the latest innovations in structural design.

Who Should Attend


Recent engineering graduates new to transmission structure design Experienced engineers new to transmission structure design Utility engineers requiring additional training Engineers new to transmission manufacturing

LEARNING OUTCOMES
Define and describe the different types of structures and when to use them Identify the necessary loading criteria for which to design Examine the applicable design standards and manuals Apply structural design fundamentals for latticed self-supporting towers, tubular steel structures, guyed structures and more Examine the appropriate design software applications Analyze the different methods of testing and when to apply them Identify the manufacturing and finishing process for towers, poles and other structures Examine the possibilities of aesthetics and innovation in transmission design

Excellent course for someone beginning their career in the transmission or power delivery field. Transmission Line Engineer, Sargent & Lundy

INSTRUCTOR
Mike Khavari, PE, P.Eng., M. ASCE / Founder / ASEC Inc.
Mr. Khavari received his B.S. in civil engineering from University of Texas in 1979. He has more than 30 years of experience in the design and analysis of new and existing lattice and tubular steel structures. Mr. Khavari has been involved with research and full-scale testing of various types of steel transmission structures. He serves on the following ASCE Manual and Standard Committees: Design of Latticed Steel Transmission Structures: ASCE Standard 10-97 Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures: ASCE Standard 48-11 Substation Structures Design Guide: ASCE Manuals and Reports on Engineering Practice No. 113 Design of Guyed Electrical Transmission Structures: ASCE Manuals and Reports on Engineering Practice No. 91

In 1991, Mr. Khavari started ASEC Inc., an engineering consulting company specializing in the design and analysis of various types of transmission, communication, and substation structures. In 1993, he started the North American Pole Corporation (NAPCO), a tubular steel manufacturing facility, from the ground up. NAPCO is a manufacturer of tubular steel structures. An iconic structure manufactured by NAPCO is the famous mouse head steel tower located at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. In 1997, NAPCO was sold to Newmark Corp, which is now part of Valmont Industries.
