07.26.18 | Introduction to Seismic Design - High Seismic

Calculations, Flowcharts and Checklist
A simple multi-story building, located in a region of high seismic risk, will be presented with the procedures for defining seismic loads and associated criteria for the structure using ASCE 7 Seismic provisions. An introduction to the material standards, such as AISC 341 Seismic and ACI 318 Chapter 18 Seismic, will be presented. The non-structural components equations will be described and implemented. The resulting calculations will be formatted so that they may be utilized as a flowchart and checklist for future use when designing actual buildings.
