Seismic Design of Steel-Framed Buildings 2012

These design notes illustrate the design of various types of seismic-force-resisting systems (SFRS) in different Canadian locations with varying seismicity. The notes refer extensively to the National Building Code of Canada 2010 (NBC 2010) and to CSA S16-09 “Design of Steel Structures”. In addition, there are many references to the CISC Handbook of Steel Construction, 10th Edition.

Description

These design notes illustrate the design of various types of seismic-force-resisting systems (SFRS) in different Canadian locations with varying seismicity. The notes refer extensively to the National Building Code of Canada 2010 (NBC 2010) and to CSA S16-09 “Design of Steel Structures”. In addition, there are many references to the CISC Handbook of Steel Construction, 10th Edition.

The example structures range from 1 to 10 storeys and consist of concentrically and eccentrically braced frames as well as moment-resisting frames. The structural systems include seismic-force-resisting systems in Conventional Construction, Limited-Ductility and Ductile categories.

The 7 seismic force-resisting system designs are as follows:

  • Conventional Construction Tension-Only Braced Frame, Single-Storey Building in Toronto
  • Limited-Ductility Tension-Only Braced Frame, Single-Storey Building in Montreal
  • Conventional Construction Concentrically Braced Frame, 4-Storey Building
  • Limited-Ductility (Type LD) Concentrically Braced Frame, Chevron Bracing, 4-Storey Building
  • Ductile (Type D) Eccentrically Braced Frame, 10-Storey Building in Burnaby
  • Limited-Ductility (Type LD) Moment-Resisting Frame, 4-Storey Building
  • Ductile (Type D) Moment-Resisting Frame, 4-Storey Building in Victoria
