Yes, you CAN use HSS in seismic regions! This insightful webinar will empower you with the knowledge and tools to effectively incorporate HSS into Seismic Force Resisting Systems (SFRS). Discover the unique aspects of HSS in seismic design and learn how to harness their beneficial properties for your projects. This will be accomplished through an overview of the current state of seismic connections with HSS, considerations of HSS braced frame connections, and discussion of rigid WF beam connections to HSS columns.

Learning Objectives

  • Qualify the potential advantages of HSS
  • Apply the general requirements for use of HSS in seismic systems
  • Understand how HSS are used in seismic braced frames and how this influences their connections
  • Identify the current prequalified moment connections for seismic systems utilizing HSS members
