Multi-Story Special Steel Moment Resisting Frame Example
This web seminar addresses the structural design and detailing requirements for ordinary and special steel moment frames specified in the 2012 IBC, ASCE 7-10, AISC 360-10, and AISC 341-10. Intermediate steel moment frames are only addressed by explaining why they are not commonly used. The following topics are presented:
- Seismic detailing requirements for steel moment frames that are commonly overlooked
- Start with columns and beam sizes selected to meet the strength and drift requirements of ASCE 7-10.
- Apply AISC 341-10 and AISC 358-10 beam and column limitations.
- Review and apply the connection requirements for 1) welded unreinforced flange – welded web (WUF-W), and 2) bolted flange plate (BFP) connections meeting the AISC prequalified connection requirements in AISC 358-10.
- Determine the required strength for the columns, column splice, and the column base.
- Locate the protected zones and demand critical welds in the moment frame system.
