Selecting the Appropriate Seismic System for Your Steel Project [N24]

The selection of the right seismic system for your project involves consideration of many important parameters. The desired performance level, occupancy or risk category, seismic design category, architectural constraints, ease of repair, as well as cost impacts on the structural steel and foundation packages are just a few of the many parameters that need to be considered. This session will present an overview of the considerations necessary for making an informed decision. Different types of moment and braced frame systems, combined with a discussion on the various types of system-specific connections, will be discussed.
