NIBS: April 21 BSSC Webinar Looks at Steel-Framed Buildings

Rafael Sabelli  
   

March 21, 2017 -- The National Institute of Building Sciences Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) will host the third webinar in its 2017 series sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The free webinar, “Design of Seismic Force-Resisting Systems in Steel-Framed Buildings,” will be held Friday, April 21, 2017, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET (11:00 am to 12:00 pm PT).

The webinar highlights the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) 2015 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for Buildings and Other Structures, as well as its supporting materials, FEMA P-1051 Design Examples and FEMA P-1052 Training Materials.

A member of BSSC’s Provisions Update Committee, Presenter Rafael Sabelli will introduce the design of seismic force-resisting systems in steel-framed buildings intended to complement the design problems in Chapter 9 of the FEMA P-1051 Design Examples. He also will discuss the design of ordinary concentrically braced frames, special concentrically braced frames and special moment frames.

Rafael is a Principal and Director of Seismic Design at Walter P Moore. Active in the development of seismic design standards for steel systems, he is a member of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Seismic Provisions Committee and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 7 Seismic Task Committee. He chairs the AISC Seismic Design Manual Committee and serves as project manager for the five-volume Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) Seismic Design Manual. Rafael is co-author of Ductile Design of Steel Structures, and has written extensively on the design and behavior of steel seismic systems. AISC recognized Rafael with a Special Achievement Award and the T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award.

About the NEHRP Recommended Provisions

Under the sponsorship of FEMA, BSSC administers an ongoing consensus-based process of updating and maintaining the NEHRP Recommended Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures. The NEHRP Recommended Provisions and its Commentary and resource papers embody the state-of-knowledge criteria for design and construction of new buildings subject to earthquake hazards. The new knowledge and technologies contained in this resource document are diffused into the model building codes developed by the International Code Council (ICC) and several national standards, including the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) ASCE/SEI-7 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures. Learn more about the 2015 NEHRP Provisions.

About the Building Seismic Safety Council

The Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) is an independent, voluntary membership body representing a wide variety of building community interests related to seismic safety. Its fundamental purpose is to enhance public safety by providing a national forum that fosters improved seismic safety provisions for use by the building community in the planning, design, construction, regulation and utilization of buildings

 

About the National Institute of Building Sciences

The National Institute of Building Sciences , authorized by public law 93-383 in 1974, is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that brings together representatives of government, the professions, industry, labor and consumer interests to identify and resolve building process and facility performance problems. The Institute serves as an authoritative source of advice for both the private and public sectors with respect to the use of building science and technology.
