This session includes a presentation of the formal relationship of codes in the U.S. for building design. The basic concepts employed in code- seismic design, such as seismic design category, maximum considered earthquake, importance factor, etc. will be explained. The lecture will also explain of general analysis and design requirements. There will be a discussion of detailed systems (designed using the AISC Seismic Provisions) and non-detailed systems (designed using only the AISC Specification). The treatment of wind-vs.-seismic comparison issues for building design will be covered. The session will end with a discussion of future directions in earthquake engineering.
