Webinar: Performance-Based Seismic Design of Mid-Rise Light-Frame Wood Buildings
|Description:||This is the first in the NEES/EERI webinar series entitled Reducing Earthquake Losses, From Research to Practice.
This webinar summarizes key findings of the NEESwood project, suggested design approaches, and code implications. Findings address effects of nonstructural finishes on behavior, hold-down forces and elongation, inter-story drift limits, and accidental torsion. The discussion of the proposed design approach includes direct displacement design, use of numerical methods, rigid body calculations and diaphragm design. The webinar will conclude with a short discussion of the effects on current codes and a proposal for potential code modifications.
Presenters: John van de Lindt - University of Alabama and Steve Pryor - Simpson Strong-Tie.
