Ductility is a fundamental property in structural behavior and design. This session will review the what, why and how of ductility – and how it is used implicitly in typical structural applications and explicitly to withstand extreme dynamic overloads such as earthquakes. In addition, the basic principles for achieving ductile behavior in steel structures will be discussed and illustrated.
Dr. Michael D. Engelhardt is a Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, where he has been on the faculty since 1989. Engelhardt is considered one of the top lecturers and researchers in the area of seismic design. Among his many honors is the T.R. Higgins award in 1999 for his work on the development of the reduced beam section moment connection.
This webinar was developed as part of the 2007 North American Steel Construction Conference. The presentation is offered here as part of the AISC "Top Hits from Top Profs" series. Upon completion of the seminar, the attendee will be given an online quiz based on information given in the seminar and when he/she passes the quiz with a score of 70% or higher, the attendee will be able to purchase and print a CEU/PDH certificate for 1.5 contact hours.
