Lateral Load Transfer – From Diaphragms to Resisting Elements

This webinar will examine how loads flow through building diaphragms and collectors to the vertical elements of the lateral force-resisting system.  Using examples from real projects, the presentation will address the challenges that arise when connecting steel framing to various types of lateral systems, with a focus on effective detailing practices and understanding the diaphragm-specific seismic provisions of ASCE 7.  Drawing from the speaker’s extensive experience with major building projects, the webinar will include some monumental case studies you won’t want to miss, including the attachment of diaphragms to the revolutionary SpeedCore system.
