Seismic Design in Steel -- Concepts and Examples (Part 5): Design Example Setup (L1)

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 5 includes:

  • Presentation of design example steps
  • System selection
  • Configuration selection
  • Base-shear determination, including wind vs. seismic comparison
  • Determination of irregularities
  • Presentation of load combinations, including determination of redundancy and identifying load combination extents (i.e., which elements get "omegified")

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