ICC Preferred Provider Course Number: 19793The design of ductile concentrically braced frames has evolved considerably over the past few revisions of AISC 341. This seminar will present fundamentals on the seismic behavior of concentrically braced frames and the current AISC 341-16 provisions for Special Concentrically Braced Frames that are intended to achieve ductile seismic response. Specific points of emphasis will include the application of capacity-based design principles, braced frame member design, and braced connection behavior and detailing for ductility. An overview of a design example will also be provided. Jeffrey Berman, Ph.D., is the Thomas and Marilyn Neilson Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington. He has two decades of experience in practically focused research on the seismic behavior of steel structures, including concentrically braced frames, eccentrically braces and steel plate shear walls. His research and interactions with practitioners and building code officials has led to several contributions to the AISC Seismic Design Provisions, AISC 341-16. He has authored or co-authored more than 60 journal publications and regularly organizes sessions at major conferences on topics in the seismic behavior of steel structures. Please note a single registration allows you to have one connection. However, a number of people can view and listen to the seminar using one connection by using an LCD projector (or a large computer monitor) and good computer speakers or a speaker phone. All attendees, irrespective of the number of registered connections, can earn 0.25 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or 2.5 professional development hours (PDHs). CEU/PDH certificates are provided free of charge.
To meet the new reality of social distancing, we are reducing the price for additional connections to our live webinars (see table below). This discount will apply to live webinars scheduled through the end of May 2020. The discount is also available to those of you who have a webinar subscription plan with us.
