This seminar introduces the 2016 AISC Seismic Provisions and the 3rd Edition of the Seismic Design Manual. It highlights proper application of key design and detailing requirements and introduces important technical changes in the recently updated Seismic Provisions. Design examples from the new 3rd Edition of the Seismic Design Manual will be included. The seminar reviews general design considerations, performance goals and role of inelastic and force control elements.  The seminar then reviews provisions applicable to all seismic force resisting systems before an in-depth review of moment frames and braced frames. This seminar is the 2019 Louis F. Geschwindner Seminar series.

Possible Contract Seminar Topics

15th Ed. Manual and 2016 Specification

The 2016 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and the 15th Edition Steel Construction Manual are both available now. You won't want to miss this half-day seminar where important changes and clarifications that have been incorporated into these documents will be explained.  The seminar will examine the Specification chapter by chapter and highlight changes since the 2010 version.  Design examples will be presented to demonstrate the changes in the Specification and how to apply useful design aides in the Manual.

The seminar will highlight changes to:

  • Treatment of compression members with slender elements
  • Treatment of tees and double angles in bending
  • Shear provisions for built-up I-shapes
  • Bolted connection provisions
  • And more…
