Frame of Reference: Steel Moment Frames Explained

September 7, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

This web seminar will discuss the structural design and detailing requirements for ordinary and special steel moment frames specified under the provisions of the 2018 IBC, ASCE 7-16, AISC 360-16, and AISC 341. Intermediate steel moment frames will only be addressed by explaining why they are not commonly used. The following topics will be presented:

  • Seismic detailing requirements for steel moment frames that are commonly overlooked
  • Examples illustrating the mixing of steel moment resisting frames with wood lateral-force resisting systems and compliance with seismic detailing requirements, even when wind load governs
  • Performance of past design leading up to current design philosophy for steel moment frames
  • Comparisons of design and detailing requirements for various steel moment frame systems
  • Background on the exceptions for increased height of ordinary steel moment frames
  • Challenges when using steel moment frames in wood construction
  • Helpful reference documents for practicing engineers
