Understanding Crash Barriers and Hostile Vehicle Mitigation v2

Course No.: TY0814-W This course contains information that will take a designer through the history of crash rated barriers in the US. It will outline the different organizations and testing criteria involved in certifying a vehicle barrier as “crash rated”. You will be introduced to several aspects of perimeter security and Hostile Vehicle Mitigation. This includes some of the design concepts and ideology to achieve the required security level. We will analyze the different types of barriers, both crash and non-crash rated, that may be used as part of threat deterrence. The course also offers some insight into the analysis of site-specific information that may help guide your decisions on what type of barriers to select. Finally we will look at the current climate of vehicle-borne attacks and the security measures being taken to thwart them.

Effective moisture management systems are critical to HSW, sustainable design and energy efficiency. Cavity walls of 1" or greater must provide adequate drainage at the bottom of the wall to allow moisture to exit efficiently from the building envelope. This course looks at studies that support the need for adequate weep systems, states the criteria of those systems, and covers the risk zones where those systems are needed. This course is designed to help you meet the AIA’s HSW requirements.

New building code requirements focus on improving energy efficiency, but are we re-creating the EIFS disasters of the early 90s? This course explores the relationship between temperature and moisture, and uses these principles to look at energy-efficient, healthy and sustainable buildings by including drainage in the building envelope.

Moisture is the number one cause of building envelope failures. When used correctly, rainscreen moisture management systems greatly reduce that risk; however, one size doesn’t fit all! From furring strips to building wraps to manufactured rainscreen drainage products, the potential rainscreen drainage choices are many, but certainly not equally effective. Learn the fundamentals of choosing the right rainscreen moisture management system for your next project and leave with resources that can simplify the process.

The health & sustainability costs of moisture in the rainscreen building envelope can be dire! The evidence is clear that moisture related building envelope failures, and their health related consequences, are still commonplace. This course examines some well-known failure incidents as well as health issues related to moisture intrusion; it examines moisture-prone areas of the rainscreen building envelope; and it presents specific suggestions on how to remedy the problems in those areas with effective rainscreen moisture management systems.
