Design of Facade Attachments, Session L2: Facade Attachments, Part 2
Many multi-story structural-steel-framed buildings support the facade’s gravity and lateral loads from the spandrel beams or the slab edges. In this session, we will examine the pros and cons of connections to spandrel beams and slab edges along with methods for designing these elements for facade loads. The session will include a series of example problems that address issues of strength and stiffness.
This course is based on a past AISC Live Webinar.
