This series of four one-hour webinars focuses on the three main areas of improvement in the ACI standard for concrete design and construction and indicates how compliance with the enhanced requirements would have been beneficial to the performance of the building. The 12-story condominium building, where 98 people were killed, was likely designed under the early or mid-1970s Florida Building Code and ACI 318-71 or ACI 318-77. Concrete durability, flat plate punching shear and structural integrity provisions of ACI 318 are critical areas of improvements that engineers, architects, and building officials must be familiar with for safe performance of concrete buildings.

Dr. S. K. Ghosh is known internationally for his work in earthquake engineering. He has influenced seismic design provisions in the United States for many years by serving on or chairing numerous committees and advisory panels. He specializes in the analysis and design, including wind and earthquake resistant design, of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Dr. Ghosh is active on many national technical committees and is a fellow of ASCE, SEI, ACI, and PCI. He is a member of ACI Committee 318, Standard Building Code, and the ASCE 7 Standard Committee (Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures). He is a former member of the Boards of Direction of the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI). In addition to authoring many publications in the area of structural design, he has investigated and reported on structural performance in recent earthquakes.
