John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
Life safety considerations for building occupants vary depending on the building types and usages. This course highlights the special detailed requirements based on use and occupancy, and helps engineers and architects get familiar with the latest building code. The course materials are based entirely on IBC 2009: Chapter 4 - Special Detailed Requirements Based on Use and Occupancy, which contains requirements for buildings and conditions that apply to one or more groups, such as high-rise buildings, underground buildings or atriums. In addition, Chapter 4 contains provisions that may alter requirements found elsewhere in the International Building Code. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
