Seismic Design for Non-West Coast Engineers – a Two Part Webinar

This introductory, two-part webinar will address basic concepts of seismic design.

Part 1 of the webinar will start with a brief historical perspective of earthquakes and will then discuss the basics of earthquake loading and building dynamic response, and the use of ductility in resisting earthquakes. 

Part 2 of the webinar will focus on the performance of steel structures in past earthquakes, computing earthquake loads using the equivalent lateral force method, basic concepts on detailing of steel to achieve ductile response, options for structural steel lateral force resisting systems, and an overview of the AISC Seismic Provisions.

Registration is closed.
