Free FEMA P-749 Webinar Part A: The Basic Concepts of Earthquake-Resistant Design and an Introduction to U.S. Seismic Regulations
The Applied Technology Council (ATC) is pleased to announce a two-part webinar series to celebrate the release of a new edition of FEMA P-749, Earthquake-Resistant Design Concepts: An Introduction to Seismic Provisions for New Buildings, which has been updated to the latest standards and expanded to cover a wider range of topics. FEMA P-749 provides an overview of earthquake-resistant design concepts and their context within the seismic requirements of U.S. building codes. Both the webinar series and report are presented in two parts. Part A, for a general audience, is a high-level, approachable explanation of the basis and intent of U.S. seismic provisions; Part B is written for an engineering audience and provides a walkthrough of the seismic design process for new buildings.

Part A: This webinar will provide an approachable explanation of the intent of U.S. seismic provisions and the key principles of earthquake-resistant design. Information includes earthquake hazard fundamentals, the approach to seismic risk in current building codes, new concepts that could impact future seismic provisions, key design features for seismic resistance, and vulnerabilities of common structure types.
