BYA Publications

Complete information on 2014 Seminars is now available.

BYA publications, a subsidiary of BYA Consultants located in Los Angeles, California, is an independent publisher of the Structural Engineering Review Manual. Ben Yousefi, SE, has been the editor-in-chief of the manual since 1991. The manual has always been based on the latest edition of the model Building Code. The new 2012 edition based on the 2009 IBC will be available in late January. The Manual also serves as an excellent resource for a variety of structural engineering day to day problems with a strong emphasis on seismic design.

We also offer two comprehensive seminars at convenient Southern and Northern California locations. The 12 sessions dedicated to the design of all material types and analysis techniques, are instructed by some of the most prominent lectures in their field of expertise, who have been actively involved in research and/or code development processes. Starting in 2011 the California SE exam will be based solely in the new national NCEES 16 hour exam. The intent of seminars is to provide an interactive environment for learning that leads to better understanding of code provisions, better preparation for the SE exam and practice as a professional structural engineer.
