New Redvector Course: Design of Buildings Using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)

RedVector is excited to announce the launch of a brand new mobile-ready eLearning course on ICFs!

Design of Buildings Using Insulated Concrete Forms

This course is intended to present a comparison of engineering analysis approaches to the design of building structures for Insulated Concrete Forms. The course covers the Prescriptive Method (developed by HUD through PCA) and the two appropriate sections of the 2011 ACI code for walls. A simple, 2-story house with a basement is used as an example to demonstrate the application of both of these methods for a 6-inch thick waffle-slab and a flat panel ICF wall.

By the end of this RedVector course, students will be able to recognize the limitations of the Prescriptive Method and the ACI code for design of ICF wall structural systems, identify the different types of ICF wall systems, recognize the allowable capacity of an ICF wall system, and define the deflection and reinforcement for an ICF wall system.

RedVector is proud to offer this new course and has many other exciting courses launching soon.  Be sure to follow our blog and check us out on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-speed on all the latest eLearning news and course launches!
