No multi-story building can do without stairs, yet the design of these critical building components is commonly overlooked or left to other parties. Drawing from the wisdom of the author of AISC Design Guide 34, Steel-Framed Stairway Design, this two-part webinar will address the necessary coordination, layout, and structural design considerations to raise your next building or industrial structure project to the next level.
PART 2 – SEISMIC LOADS & DELEGATED DESIGN (5/21/2020)
In Part 2, the focus will shift to issues related to lateral loads, especially seismic demands. Topics will include:
- Code requirements specific to stairways for seismic loading, as per the IBC and ASCE 7
- Delegated design considerations
- Coordination between project team members: stair designer and architect, engineer of record, detailer, fabricator, and erector
- Design examples
