 Registration is closed for this event

About the Webinar Series

SEAOC is pleased to offer this series of webinars that detail key examples in SEAOC’s 2012 IBC Structural Seismic Design Manual (SSDM).  The first series will focus on Volume 2, Light-frame, Tilt-up and Masonry Buildings. Three example problems will be presented along with related material in a total of five webinar presentations. 

Topic 3 of the series includes two webinar sessions and will cover a total of 180 minutes of material. The presentation material will be split across the following dates:

Session 1: Thursday, January 15, 2015; 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM PST
Session 2: Thursday, January 22, 2015; 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM PST

Many of the questions regarding cold-formed steel framed seismic force-resisting systems regard the which floor framing system should be used, overturning restraint options and their design and detailing, wall stud bracing design and detailing, the use of the overstrength factor (Wo), and anchorage of the overturning restraint system to concrete. Therefore, this presentation will focus on these aspects of design as covered in the SSDM design example.
