SEAOC SSDM Webinar: Steel Design Example 7 - Metal Deck Diaphragms

 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

Example 7 of Volume 4 of the SSDM covers design of a bare metal deck diaphragm and design of a concrete-filled metal deck diaphragm. The webinar for this design example will start with the basic mechanics of diaphragms, discuss code provisions for diaphragms, cover what code provisions have changed as a result of the 2012 IBC updates, and work through the design of the various diaphragm components. Brief discussions regarding constructability and modelling will also be included.
