ICC Preferred Provider Course Number: 26032This web seminar will discuss the structural design and detailing requirements for ordinary and special steel moment frames specified under the provisions of the 2018 IBC, ASCE 7-16, AISC 360-16, and AISC 341. Intermediate steel moment frames will only be addressed by explaining why they are not commonly used. The following topics will be presented:
- Seismic detailing requirements for steel moment frames that are commonly overlooked
- Examples illustrating the mixing of steel moment resisting frames with wood lateral-force resisting systems and compliance with seismic detailing requirements, even when wind load governs
- Performance of past design leading up to current design philosophy for steel moment frames
- Comparisons of design and detailing requirements for various steel moment frame systems
- Background on the exceptions for increased height of ordinary steel moment frames
- Challenges when using steel moment frames in wood construction
- Helpful reference documents for practicing engineers
