Seismic Design in Steel -- Concepts and Examples (Part 3): Braced Frames (R3)
This 8-part 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. Parts 1-4 focus on seismic design concepts. Parts 5-8 go through four distinct parts of a seismic design example for a low-rise building.
Part 3 includes:
- Presentation of braced frame configurations
- Discussion of behavior of braced frames in earthquakes and in testing
- Detailed treatment of brace behavior in tension and compression
- Overview of configuration-related issues
- Discussion of the behavior of beam-column-gusset connection assemblies at large drifts and related design approaches
- Treatment of design issues for gusset plates and connection analysis
This course is based on a past AISC Live Webinar series and Night School program.
