Monday,January 22, 2024:8:00 AM -5:00 PM
/ CEU Credits:8
Vanishing edge and slot-edge details continue to frame watershapes in creative and beautiful ways. Comprehending the infinite architectural options, underlying structural and finish challenges, and fluid mechanics can be an intimidating task. This focused eight-hour program deconstructs the artistry of the edge and exposes the technical challenges with solutions that include everything from reinforcing steel to new fluid engineering analysis tools.
Students are expected to have a smartphone or tablet to access the analysis tools. A laptop is not required.
Classify and identify edge design details for water-in-transit pools, spas and waterfeatures
Examine structural requirements from soil, hydrostatic and hydrodynamic loads to reinforcing steel and concrete in accordance with building codes and standards
Establish fluid mechanics performance criteria guided by visual and acoustic objectives and achieved through sound engineering practices
