AISC Offers Seismic Design Webinar Series

Ground acceleration record for the historic, 1994 Northridge, Calif. earthquake. 

AISC is offering a two-part webinar series, “Seismic Design for Non-West Coast Engineers,” on August 10 and 17, that will address basic concepts of seismic design.

The first webinar will include a brief historical perspective of earthquakes, the basics of earthquake loading and building dynamic response, and the use of ductility in resisting earthquakes. The second 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.

Both webinars are 1.5 hours long and will begin at 1:30 p.m. ET. Registration includes both webinars. For more information and to register, visit
