This seminar is designed to answer many questions regarding the detailing rules for intermediate and special moment frames of reinforced concrete and their proper application in accordance with ACI 318-11 and ACI 318-14. Intermediate detailing, at a minimum, is required for structural members that are part of the seismic force-resisting system (SFRS) of a building assigned to Seismic Design Category (SDC) C. If the SDC is D, E, or F, special detailing, at a minimum, is required. It will demystify the seismic detailing requirements that are so commonly misinterpreted. The following topics, among others, are addressed in this web seminar:

  • Seismic detailing of flat plate-column frames
  • Dimensional restrictions on beams and columns and why they are necessary
  • Why column longitudinal reinforcement ratios should be kept as low as possible
  • Advantages and disadvantages of spirals vs. hoops
  • Important changes in special moment frame detailing from ACI 318-11 to ACI 318-14

Dr. S. K. Ghosh is known internationally for his work in earthquake engineering. He has influenced seismic design provisions in the United States for many years by serving on or chairing numerous committees and advisory panels. He specializes in the analysis and design, including wind and earthquake resistant design, of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Dr. Ghosh is active on many national technical committees and is a fellow of ASCE, SEI, ACI, and PCI. He is a member of ACI Committee 318, Standard Building Code, and the ASCE 7 Standard Committee (Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures). He is a former member of the Boards of Direction of the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI). In addition to authoring many publications in the area of structural design, he has investigated and reported on structural performance in recent earthquakes.
