AISC will be hosting a live webinar on Thursday, June 19, titled “Seismic Load Paths for Steel Buildings,” which will focus on seismic load paths and the role of diaphragms and components of diaphragms including chords and collectors.
In seismic design, every element with mass is considered a point of application and the foundation is considered the point of resistance. The webinar will also discuss foundation issues and the concept of deformation compatibility of the entire structure. This is an encore presentation of Session 7: Building Configuration, from AISC’s previous Night School course on Fundamentals of Earthquake Engineering for Building Structures. The session has been modified to function as a stand-alone presentation.
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.
