WEBINAR – Offset Diaphragms and Shear Walls
December 10, 2014 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern
Lateral force resisting systems in today’s structures are more complex than they were several decades ago, incorporating multiple horizontal and vertical offsets in the diaphragms, multiple irregularities and fewer lateral resisting elements. This presentation will provide a brief review of the method used to analyze these complex structures.
