Virtual Seminar: The Seismic Design Manual  -- Third Edition of the AISC Seismic Design Manual and Applications of the 2016 Seismic Provisions – AISC 341

Five-Part Virtual Seminar

Presented by Thomas Sabol

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.
