Structural Integrity of Buildings

Structural integrity has become a major issue in the assessment of risks under extreme service conditions. Will the beam end shear connections perform adequately when a fire causes the member to deform into a catenary? How does one design for tie forces? Are connections capable of deforming sufficiently without prompting failures in adjacent structural components? This presentation addresses all of these concerns.

This course is based on a past NASCC session.
