This seminar is designed for practicing engineers and is dedicated to completing a multi-story special steel concentrically braced frame example so that common concerns and application of requirements can be illustrated. As the example is being presented, difficult-to-understand ASCE 7-10 and AISC 341-10 provisions are explained, including why they are required in the first place. Frequently asked questions are presented and those “am I doing it right?” questions are answered. The example addresses the following:

  1. Force determination
  2. Strength analysis
  3. Brace buckling analysis
  4. Amplified seismic forces
  5. Connection design
  6. Protected zone requirements
  7. Column splices
