February 11 - Buckling Restrained Braced Frame


This presentation will address steel seismic design in accordance with the 2018 IBC. Specifically, it will review the Buckling Restrained Braced Frame design example in Volume 4 of the 2018 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual. The authors will present the basic code provisions for Buckling Restrained Braces and illustrate through the example how a building can be designed to adhere to those provisions. Specific requirements for conformance demonstration through testing will also be addressed.

  • Course will award 1.5 hours of continuing education
  • Diamond Review approved in all 50 states
  • This webinar will be available as a recording.

Please note: This webinar is part of the Seismic Design Series and is not included in the NCSEA Webinar Subscription.
