341103-2 - Practical Applications of the new AISC Seismic Design Manual

Friday, April 20
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Ballroom C

The 3rd Edition of the AISC Seismic Design Manual will incorporate new information and design aids related to the design and construction of steel buildings in seismic regions. The updates to this Manual primarily consist of new design examples for various seismic force resisting systems. In addition, the updates to the Seismic Provisions, as included in Part 9, are incorporated throughout the Manual.
Part 1 will include a sample set of plan and detail drawings showing how the designer can indicate the seismic force resisting system to the fabricator and erector. The tables in this part will also incorporate the latest in larger rolled steel shapes and high strength steel grades as they are permitted in various seismic applications.
Design examples have been developed in Part 4 for Special Moment Frame systems to reflect the updates to the Seismic Provisions. These examples will provide guidance for bracing a beam in a moment frame, designing a bolted flange plate connection, and designing a Special Truss Moment Frame system. The new design examples in Part 5 will address Multi-Tiered Ordinary Concentric Braced Frames, as the system becomes more prevalent in seismic design. The Seismic Provisions updates to ordinary and special composite shear wall systems will be included in Part 7.
Part 9 of the Manual will contain the 2016 Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings and Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Moment Frames for Seismic Applications. These standards represent the latest innovations in engineering research, design and construction of steel buildings in seismic regions.

Michael J. Gannon, P.E., S.E., is a Senior Engineer at the American Institute of Steel Construction. As secretary of the AISC Task Committee 9 on Seismic Systems, the AISC Manual Subcommittee M3 on the Seismic Manual, and the AISC Task Committee 7 on Evaluation and Repair, Mr. Gannon works with industry experts to plan and develop various AISC standards and publications. These include ANSI/AISC 341 Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings, the AISC Seismic Design Manual, and ANSI/AISC 342 Seismic Provisions for Evaluation and Retrofit of Structural Steel Buildings. Prior to joining AISC, Mr. Gannon worked for over eight years as a consulting structural engineer with a primary focus in steel connection design and construction engineering.

Michael’s education includes a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, and a Master of Science in Engineering, Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
