Webinar on the NIST GCR 12-917-21 Report: Soil-Structure Interaction for Building Structures (ATC-83 Project)

Wednesday, March 26, 2014
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Pacific

Purpose. The Purpose of the Webinar is to provide an overview of the NIST GCR 12-917-21 report: Soil-Structure Interaction for Building Structures produced by the NEHRP Consultants Joint Venture, a partnership of ATC and CUREE, under the ATC-83 Project. Topics covered in the webinar will include strategies by which Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) can be included in the analysis of structural response, procedures used to develop spring and dashpot elements to represent soil-foundation flexibility, and processes that lead to ground motion reduction on foundations relative to the free-field.
Emphasis will be placed on developing and understanding of some of the basic physics associated with the SSI effects described in the report. The manner by which those effects are implemented in various codes and guidelines documents will be explained, including the response history procedures presented in the report. Example applications for two buildings will be presented, which provide support and justification for the recommended procedures.
Webinar Presenter. Jonathan P. Stewart, Ph.D., P.E., is Professor and Chair of the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department at UCLA. His technical expertise is in geotechnical earthquake engineering and engineering seismology, with emphases on seismic soil-structure interaction, engineering characterization of earthquake ground motions, seismic performance of levees and other embankments, and seismic ground failure. Results of work by his research group are widely utilized in engineering practice, including the NEHRP Provisions, ASCE-7, and ASCE-41. He is a former Chief Editor for the ASCE Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering and the current Editor for Earthquake Spectra. He served as the Project Technical Director for the ATC-83 project that led to the drafting of this NIST GCR 12-917-21 report.
Intended Audience. This Webinar has been specifically designed for practicing geotechnical and structural engineers, but will also be useful for building officials, educators, and students.
Webinar Handouts. Registrants will receive access to a pdf electronic copy of the of the NIST GCR 12-917-21 report, and the electronic (pdf) copy of the Presentation in advance of the Webinar.
Professional Development Hours (PDHs). Each registrant of the NIST GCR 12-917-21 Report Webinar will receive an electronic certificate documenting 1.5 PDHs. Each additional participant sharing the registrant's computer may obtain PDH documentation for $5 using a form provided following the webinar.
Registration Information. The Webinar registration fee is $150 per computer site ($140 for ATC Subscribers, with verification of current subscription. $75 for students). To register for this webinar, click here.
