Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) is the conceptual framework upon which ground motion intensity (i.e., spectral acceleration) is estimated for use in design throughout the United States. It is also used in site specific determination of ground motion for special projects or projects with poor site conditions. Determination of ground motion parameters is the realm of geotechnical engineers, however, structural engineers should have a working understanding of the underpinnings of PSHA to properly interpret both the design ground motion parameters and their structural analysis results. This seminar will provide a background in PSHA designed for structural engineers to develop an understanding of where critical design ground parameters are derived from.
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.
- A connection is defined as a single web connection plus a single telephone connection (if necessary). If you want to sign up for more than one connection for this seminar, you will have the opportunity to do so after placing the seminar in your cart.
- A $15 fee will apply if the seminar registrant wishes to revise the web seminar registration (e.g. switch from one web seminar to another).
- Refunds are limited to 80 percent of fee and must be applied for in writing WITHIN THIRTY DAYS after the scheduled seminar.
