Title: Introduction to Seismic Design and Frequently Misunderstood Seismic Provisions 2 PDH
Abstract: This session will provide an introduction to seismic design methodology and approaches used in ASCE 7. It will focus on ASCE 7/ IBC seismic provisions that are often misunderstood or incorrectly applied by the practicing structural engineer. Key topics will include: Redundancy (ρ), R, Cd and Ωo, horizontal and vertical lateral force resisting system combinations, and irregularities. Each topic will include references to lessons learned from past earthquakes, code provisions, suggestions to simplify, and sample problems.
