This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


For cast-in-place concrete, the most critical aspects of seismic connection design are related to the behavior of “gravity” framing under earthquake movement, including connections to foundations. This presentation will cover slab-to-column connections including punching shear, slab-to-wall connections, as well as coupling beams and coupling slabs. Floor diaphragm force paths and collectors will also be addressed, along with shear-friction connections and beam and column strength at moment frame connections. The presentation will address principles, behavior modes, code requirements, and design strategies.

  • Course will award 1.5 hours of continuing education
  • This course is Diamond Review approved in 49 states. New York does not accept hours from recordings.
Please note: This webinar is part of the Seismic Connections Series and is not included in the NCSEA Webinar Subscription. The registration fee for the Series is $595 for members ($900 for nonmembers), which includes all 9 hours of education.
