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