This course is intended to provide engineers with guidance on applying the AISC seismic design requirements, correctly and efficiently, on typical projects in regions of moderate or high seismicity.

Part 3 includes:

  • Presentation of braced frame configurations
  • Discussion of behavior of braced frames in earthquakes and in testing
  • Detailed treatment of brace behavior in tension and compression; overview of configuration-related issues
  • Discussion of the behavior of beam-column-gusset connection assemblies at large drifts and related design approaches
  • Treatment of design issues for gusset plates and connection analysis
