Available On Demand starting Monday, October 5
In this session, Dr. Mays discusses limit design used in tilt-up structures. The economic benefits of limit design (i.e., overall steel reduction and less stringent prescriptive seismic detailing) are coupled with increased structural reliability related to the seismic performance objectives established in the IBC. Put simply, when limit design is used for tilt-up panels, the designer is in control of the design, places reinforcing steel where needed, and is able to fully document how the structure will move, safely and reliably, during the design earthquake. Dr. Mays has also included antiterrorism design examples using a similar methodology to help the audience understand the approaches used in the guide.
