Seismic Design in Steel -- Concepts and Examples (Part 2): Moment Frames (R2)

This course is intended to provide engineers with guidance on applying the AISC seismic design requirements, correctly and efficiently, on typical projects in regions of moderate or high seismicity.

Part 2 includes:

  • Presentation of moment frame intended behavior and source of inelastic drift, presentation of moment frame analysis issues
  • Discussion of moment frame connection testing and lessons learned after the Northridge earthquake
  • Treatment of connection design
  • Discussion of member stability

This course is based on a past AISC Live Webinar series and Night School program.
