SEAOC SSDM Webinar: Steel Design Example 5 - Eccentrically Braced Frame

 Registration is closed for this event

About the Webinar Series

These webinars continue SEAOC’s series of seismic design examples problems using the provisions of the 2012 International Buildings Code (IBC). The webinars will present four examples of steel systems From Volume 4 of SEAOC’s Structural/Seismic Design Manual (SSDM) Series. Design examples will be presented in detail, addressing not only main concepts, but also the nuts and bolts of seismic-resistant design. 

Webinars will be from 11:30 to 1:00 on consecutive Thursdays. A question and answer period will be provided at the end of each webinar.

In This Webinar

Given its substantial capacity for inelastic energy dissipation, the Eccentrically Braced Frame (EBF) is often the lateral-resisting system of choice for buildings constructed in high seismic regions. This system is considered a hybrid, in that it combines the stiffness of a concentrically braced frame with the ductility and energy dissipation of a moment frame. This presentation will summarize the design procedures for a six-story EBF office building, Design Example 5 of the SSDM series. The focus will be to emphasis applicable code provisions and accepted design implementation approaches. It is intended as a design illustration for the practicing structural engineer, though it will also be useful for building officials, educators and students.
