If you haven’t already registered for AISC’s live webinar “Practical Application of Steel Plate Shear Walls,” which happens this Thursday (August 8), you still have time! Online registration will remain open until 11 p.m. (PDT) tomorrow night.
Steel plate shear walls have gained exposure in recent years as an innovative lateral system. In this webinar, you’ll learn about the advantages of steel plate shear walls and how they differ from traditional lateral systems. The presentation will cover the background of steel plate shear walls and the research that has been done, as well as how the system became codified. It will also discuss the behavior and design of the two basic types of systems: stiffened and unstiffened shear walls.
The 1.5-hour webinar will begin at the following times, relative to time zone:
10:30 a.m. PDT
11:30 a.m. MDT
12:30 p.m. CDT
1:30 p.m. EDT
The cost of the webinar is $185 for AISC members, $285 for non-members and $155 for students and educators. (Fees are based on a per-site connection basis. Purchase one site connection and any number of members in your company or organization may view the webinar at that site connection. All attendees are eligible to receive CEUs/PDHs.)
Registrants will receive access to a PDF file of the presentation slides prior to the webinar, CEU/PDH certificates for all attendees upon completion of the live webinar (0.15 CEUs/1.5 PDHs) and complete instructions for accessing the live webinar.
