Live Webinars

Seismic Load Paths for Steel Buildings

Note: This is an encore presentation of Session 7: Building Configuration, from Night School 4, Fundamentals of Earthquake Engineering for Building Structures.

Structures require a complete load path to maintain stability.  Load path connects each point of application to a point of resistance.  In seismic design, every element with mass is considered a point of application and the foundation is considered the point of resistance.  This live webinar focuses on seismic load path and the role of diaphragms and components of diaphragms including chords, collectors and collector connections.  Foundation issues will be discussed and the concept of deformation compatibility of the entire structure will be presented.

Registrants will receive:

              • Access to a PDF file of the presentation slides prior to webinar
              • CEU/PDH certificate upon completion of the live webinar
              • Complete instructions for accessing the webinar
