Join us for the first in a series of SEAOC Blue Book Webinars!!
Understanding and Designing
Steel Concentric Braced Frames
Friday 10 June 2011
11:30 am to 1:00 pm pst
Concentrically braced steel structures have unique earthquake response characteristics compared to their moment frame counterparts; understanding these characteristics is key to a designer’s consideration of expected and desired seismic performance.  Based on The SEAOC Blue Book Article “Concentrically Braced Frames”, this presentation will provide an overview of past performance, compare and contrast design assumptions to fundamental behavior, discuss how analytical methods influence design, and present recommendations for designers. In addition, an overview will be provided of recent and on-going research efforts from around the world.
Patxi Uriz, Ph.D., P.E. - Exponent
Dr. Uriz is Managing Engineer of Buildings and Structures at Exponent, Menlo Park. He has extensive experience with non-linear analysis, and performance-based design and assessment of steel, reinforced concrete, and wood frame structures and expertise in the design, instrumentation, and testing of large scale laboratory experiments. Dr. Uriz has also served as a Lecturer at Stanford University. Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Uriz conducted research involving conventional and buckling restrained braced frames at the University of California, Berkeley.
The SEAOC Blue Book:
Since first published in 1959, the SEAOC Blue Book has been a premier source of guidance for seismic engineering. The SEAOC Blue Book is available on the SEAOC website, or through ICC. Have you consulted the Blue Book lately?
