Seismic Design of Composite Steel Deck and Concrete-filled Diaphragms

Seismic Design of Composite Steel Deck and Concrete-filled Diaphragms

This course addresses the design of diaphragms composed of steel beams and steel deck with concrete fill. The training material is the NEHRP Seismic Design Technical Brief No. 5, which introduces seismic design of composite steel deck and concrete-filled diaphragms. Through reading, students will learn the roles of diaphragms, diaphragm components, diaphragm behavior and design principles, building analysis and diaphragm forces, diaphragm analysis and internal component forces, component design, and detailing and constructability issues.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credits.

Learning Objectives
