Night School 25 Session 6: Steel Systems

This lecture will cover steel systems used in building design. Moment frames and braced frames will be covered. The presentation will include moment-frame intended behavior and source of inelastic drift as well as moment-frame analysis issues. There will be background discussion of moment-frame connection testing and lessons learned after the Northridge earthquake. The currently prequalified moment connections will be covered. Braced-frame configurations will be presented. The session will discussion of behavior of braced frames in earthquakes and in testing. Detailed treatment of brace behavior in tension and compression and the design issues for gusset plates will be covered. There will be a discussion of the behavior of beam-column-gusset connection assemblies at large drifts and related design approaches.
